Spinel SC50MPB Camera is a highly integrated serial camera which can be attached to any host system that requires a JPEG compressed still camera for embedded imaging applications. The camera uses a ½.8’’ CMOS color image sensor along with a JPEG compression chip that provides a low powered camera system. The camera has an on-board serial interface (TTL/RS232/RS485) that is ideal for a direct connection to any host microcontroller UART or a PC system COM port.
The SC50MPB camera is capable of outputting 5MP JPEG format images only.
User commands are sent using a simple serial protocol (VC0706 compatible) that can instruct the camera to send high resolution (640×480 to 2560×1920) JPEG images for storage or viewing. PC test tool and sample code are provided for easy testing and programming into microcontrollers.
