Sample Price


e-CAM50_CURB is a 5MP MIPI CSI 2 color camera for the Raspberry Pi 4 kit. It is based on the 1/2.5" AR0521 CMOS color image sensor from onsemi®.

This compact and low-power yet high-performance 5 MP camera module also has a built-in ISP, which has been fine-tuned to ensure the best image quality from the sensor. Hence, the e-CAM50_CURB is perfect for building next-generation AI-powered embedded vision applications.

The camera module can be directly connected to the Raspberry Pi 4 development kit using a 15-cm FPC cable. It is capable of uncompressed streaming data at a high resolution of HD (1920x720) at 120fps, FHD (1920x1080) at 65fps and 5 MP (1920x1080) at 60 fps. This camera also has an M12 lens holder (S-mount) - allowing customers to use their preferred lens.
