Serial JPEG Camera Module - TTL
This product us RoHS compliant This product is PbFree



The uCAM (microCAM) is a highly integrated serial camera module which can be attached to any host system that requires a video camera or a JPEG compressed still camera for embedded imaging applications.

The module uses an OmniVision CMOS VGA colour sensor along with a JPEG compression chip that provides a low cost and low powered camera system. The module has an on-board Serial interface (TTL levels) that is suitable for a direct connection to any host micro-controller UART.

User commands are sent using a simple serial protocol that can instruct the camera to send large file size single frame raw images (from 80x60 or 640x480) for quick viewing or smaller file size JPEG images (from 80x64 to 640x480)  for storage or viewing.

The uCAM-TTL comes in a compact form factor with a built in lens and a 4-wire connector that provides easy access to both power and serial data.
