Modes of operation

  • Single Capture Mode - the default mode of the device after the indicating the command via SPI, the camera captures a frame and adds it to the buffer, while setting a flag in the registry. By checking the state of the flag, the user knows that the read has been completed.
  • Multiple Capture Mode - an advanced mode where the user specifies the number of frames to be captured. Please note that the number of frames cannot exceed the capacity of the buffer.
  • JPEG Compression - in this mode, the output are compressed data in the JPG format with higher resolution, than RGB.
  • Normal Read and Burst Read Operation - in this mode, it is sufficient to send a read command for receiving the continuous transmission of frames via an SPI interface.
  • Rewind the Read Operation - it allows to read, several times, the same data contained in the buffer.
  • Low Power Mode - disables the sensor and transducer in order to save energy.
  • Image Sensor Control - mode change parameters of the camera sensor, i.a. balance, brightness, contrast and saturation.

The product is compatible with Arduino

user manual and library for Arduino are available in GitHub.

Block diagram

The device consists of a lens, sensor and electronic components with the data buffer and the controller of the SPI bus. The user has also access directly to the sensor via the I2C bus.
