OV7670 640×480 VGA CMOS Camera Image Sensor Module


OV7670 image sensor which is small in size and has low operating voltage provides a single-chip VGA camera and image processor for all functions. Controlled by the SCCB bus, 8-bit image data of various resolutions can be output by whole frame, sub-sampling, window fetching, etc. Products VGA images up to 30 frames/sec. Users can fully control the image quality, data formats, and transmission. All image processing functions including gamma curve process, white balance, saturation, hue, and so on through the SCCB interface programming.

Focal lengththe of lens is 3.6 mm 650 nm Bands Black FR-4 PCB, Quality Heavy Gold Plate, effectively prevent the PCB from light leak issues and prevents shadow in images 2×10 0.1″ output connector for convenient insertion into Prototype Board, Bread Board, MCU Onboard Connectors This Camera module is very powerful and easy-to-interface with 8/16/32 bit Micro-controller. OV7670 Camera Module will provide vision to your small embedded systems and will be useful for plenty of applications in Robotics.
