e-CAM20_CURB – AR0234 Global Shutter Raspberry Pi 4 Color Camera

e-CAM20_CURB is a Full HD global shutter color camera solution for Raspberry Pi 4 kit. It is based on the 1/2.6-inch AR0234CS CMOS color image sensor from onsemi®. This Raspberry Pi global shutter camera captures images at a high frame rate, which helps to avoid rolling shutter artifacts and reduce motion blur while capturing fast-moving objects. This in turn helps to easily extract clear details of the scene.

It comes with an M12 lens holder (S-mount) which offers customers an opportunity to use the lens of their choice. It also has a high-performance built-in Image Signal Processor (ISP) that comes with auto exposure and auto white balance functions to achieve high color fidelity.
