SUYIN Optronics presents an ultra-compact mini-camera module with a resolution of 8 megapixels
Suyin Optronics offers a highly miniaturized camera module bearing the part number CM 8013 AF05 OV01 that features a maximum resolution of 8 megapixels. Due to its compact dimensions of 8.5 mm (W) x 8.5 mm (L) x 5.91 mm (H), the module is also suitable for use in applications facing particularly tight space restrictions.Integrated autofocus capabilities, combined with a high-performance lens consisting of five plastic elements, ensures outstanding image quality and provides a display that is always sharp, regardless of the distance setting used. The image sensor, an OV8825 CMOS sensor in a PLCC housing, is in the 1/3.2-inch or 1/4 inch format. The size of the active image sensor area (the effective resolution) is 3,296 (H) x 2,460 (V) pixels. Using the standard “serial camera control bus” (SCCB), the images are read out as 10-bit RAW RGB (MIPI) files (full-frame, sub-sampled, windowed). The user has comprehensive control over output of the image files with regard to image quality and formatting. The supported image sizes include 8 megapixels, EIS1080p, 1080p, EIS720p, EISQ 1080p, Q 1080p, EISVGA, VGA and QVGA, among others. Depending on the resolution, the maximum image transmission rate is 24 fps (8 megapixels), 30 fps (EIS1080p), 60 fps (EIS720p), etc. All required image editing functions – such as the exposure setting, white balance, the masking of defective pixels, etc. – can be programmed via the SCCB interface. Black level calibration is performed automatically. Among other features, the miniature camera module offers integrated 256-byte one-time programmable memory for storing serial numbers and similar details, a chip-integrated phase-locked loop, as well as a built-in 1.5 V voltage controller for the core supply.
Signals and power are delivered via a micro connector (24 pins, 3 mm x 2 mm), which is also connected to the module via a highly miniaturized flexible PCP.
This miniature module is superbly suited for use in industrial PCs and mobile devices as well as in automotive and industrial electronics applications.
Suyin Optronics has a complete design team and owns a highly efficient production plant in Eastern China. Beyond this, the company invests in the design and manufacturing of sensor packaging, voice-coil motors for autofocus, and lens functions. An enormous diversity of material combinations is available upon request. The company works together with the largest image-sensor suppliers, such as Aptina, OmniVision, Sony and Samsung.
