Key Features

  • Low Power Consumption: Including quick sleep and quick wake-up within the speed of 42ms. The power consumption can be as little as 200mW.
  • Multicam Capability: This camera can run 4 cameras sequentially on a single MCU (Microcontroller) via an Adapter Board.
  • High-Level Control: The camera's API access provides top-tier commands, enabling you to manage it with ease, similar to operating a DSLR camera via a series of button clicks.
  • Open Source SDK: The software development kit (SDK) with an MIT license is completely open-source. It features a streamlined architecture that includes a hardware abstraction layer, allowing for easy integration of a new microcontroller unit (MCU) without requiring extensive effort or modifications.
  • Flexible Compatibility: Suitable for any microcontroller that has a standard SPI interface.

Are you looking for a camera to pair with your microcontroller? Whether that is an Arduino, Raspberry Pi Pico or any other microcontroller, this camera works with all microcontrollers that have an SPI interface.

We also offer a version that includes an autofocus lens with a higher resolution: B0401.

What is a microcontroller?

A microcontroller is a small/miniature computer that contains a single integrated circuit chip. The chip is engineered to control specific devices and is generally limited to performing only one specific task. A standard microcontroller incorporates a processor, memory, and input/output (I/O) peripherals.
