e-CAM130_iMX8M - 4K Camera board for i.MX8 Mini

e-CAM130_iMX8M is a 13MP(4K) 4-lane MIPI CSI-2 autofocus color camera board for iMX8 family of processors. The e-CAM130_iMX8M camera board is interfaced directly to the CSI-2 MIPI interface on the Variscite's DART-MX8M/DART-MX8M-MINI Evaluation kit (VAR-DT8McustomBoard). The iHDR (interlaced High Dynamic Range) support helps to capture good quality images in both high and low illumination. e-CAM130_iMX8M also comes with a high-performance Image Signal Processor (ISP) that performs all the Auto functions (autofocus, auto white balance, auto exposure control). Customer who wants to integrate this camera into their end product can directly purchase e-CAM130_MI1335_MOD camera module. This camera can achieve up to 816fps for custom Region of Interest (ROI) resolutions.
