e-con Systems Inc., a leading embedded design services company specializing in the development of advanced camera solutions announces the launch of the e-CAM58_MI5680_MOD, 5 Mega Pixel RAW Bayer Autofocus camera module with MIPI CSI-2 interface. The e-CAM58_MI5680_MOD houses a compatible lens with VCM driver for autofocus and manual focus. The e-CAM58_MI5680_MOD camera module is capable of streaming full 5MP resolution at 30fps and Full HD @30fps (1080p30) and HD@60 (720p60). 

The e-CAM58_MI5680_MOD camera module is based on OmniVision’s OV5680 an 1/3.2” optical format, 5MP, CMOS image sensor from OmniVision Inc. and comes with a standard 2-lane Mobile Industry Processor Interface (MIPI) Camera Serial Interface Type 2 (CSI-2) output interface. The 5 megapixel OV5680 features OmniVision's advanced OmniBSI-2 pixel technology and employs 1.75-micron sized pixels. This camera module can be used with any Application Processors or Digital Signal/Media Processors or even with USB UVC controllers with a compatible camera interface. 

“With the OmniBSI-2 pixel technology and the 1.75micron pixel size, the OV5680 based e-CAM58_MI5680_MOD camera module supports best-in-class low light sensitivity and streaming of 30fps at full 5MP resolution in the raw Bayer image format. The e-CAM58_MI5680_MOD offers superior low light performance than our earlier 5MP MIPI Camera module, e-CAM52_MI5640_MOD.” said Mr. Ashok Babu, President, e-con Systems Inc. “Our customers have been asking for a camera module that can stream unprocessed Bayer RGB video at 30fps and we are glad to launch such product in our camera offerings. With our strong expertise in camera integration domain, e-con can take this capability to embedded platforms through MIPI CSI-2 interface and also on PC platforms through USB3.0 interface”, he added.  

The e-CAM58_MI5680_MOD can be evaluated with ACC-CX3RDK-5680, an add on board to e-con’s Denebola - a USB 3.0 UVC Reference Design Kit (RDK) developed by e-con Systems using the EZ-USB® CX3 USB3.0 Peripheral controller from Cypress Semiconductors. The Cypress EZ-USB® CX3 is a USB 3.0 peripheral controller that enables developers to add USB 3.0 connectivity to any image sensors compliant with MIPI CSI-2 standard. 

The ACC-CX3RDK-5680 add-on board along with the custom firmware developed convert the Denebola RDK to Evaluation Kit for evaluating the e-CAM58_MI5680_MOD camera module. Customers, who already have the Denebola RDK, can order the ACC-CX3RDK-5680 add-on board and obtain the firmware image to evaluate the e-CAM58_MI5680_MOD camera module.

The ACC-CX3RDK-5680 is provided along with the firmware image that is specifically developed for evaluating the e-CAM58_MI5680_MOD camera module. e-con also provides the Windows application to evaluate the camera module features.
