5M Pixel High Definition (HD) Camera Support for EVM and Gumstix Overo Boards
e-con Systems™ launched its 5M pixel camera support for OMAP development boards. Support from e-con is for 5M pixel camera board for both the EVM and the Gumstix Overo boards. The e-CAM32_OMAP_GSTIX and the e-CAM32_OMAP35x have had very good responses from the customers.
The 5M pixel HD camera board has the Omnivision OV5642 on it. The main application of this sensor is in image processing where the number of frames really matter. The camera module can do a 720p at 30fps and we were able to achieve the same using the OMAP processor. Customers interested in OCR capture can use this camera to do OCR. OCR is used in many Low vision applications. Another application where we had inquiries was in high resolution Video recording. We have achieved 720p @ 30fps encoded Video using the OMAP processor and the OV5642 camera module.
e-con supports for both Linux and WinCE drivers shall be provided for this.
