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.
  • Autofocus Lens: It contains a programmable autofocus function for contrasting distance photography.
  • Powerful Image Quality: 5MP resolution to capture that are clearer and sharper images.
  • Flexible Compatibility: Suitable for any microcontroller that has a standard SPI interface.
  • 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.

Similar to the B0400, it boasts the capability of pairing with any microcontroller with an SPI interface; however, what differentiates this from its 3MP version is its autofocus lens, allowing a much more flexible experience by removing the limited feature of manual focus.

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.
