May 28, 2014 — e-con Systems announces 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. 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.
