Pcam 5C Fixed Focus Color Camera Module

Digilent's camera module is designed around the Omnivision OV5640 5 megapixel color image sensor

Image of Digilent's Pcam Camera ModuleThe Digilent Pcam 5C is an imaging module meant for use with development boards. The module is designed around the Omnivision OV5640 5 megapixel (MP) color image sensor. This sensor includes various internal processing functions that can improve image quality, including automatic black level calibration, automatic white balance, and controls for adjusting saturation, hue, gamma, and sharpness. Data is transferred over a dual-lane MIPI CSI-2 interface, which provides enough data bandwidth to support common video streaming formats such as 1080p (at 30 frames per second) and 720p (at 60 frames per second). The module is connected to the development board via a 15-pin flat-flexible cable (FFC). The Pcam 5C comes with a set of open source Vivado IP cores on FPGA and Zynq host boards, a 10 cm flat-flexible cable and a factory-installed fixed focus lens with M12 lens mount, so it is ready to use out of the box.
