e-CAM50_CUiMX8 - 5MP Camera for i.MX8 Quad Max

e-CAM50_CUiMX8 is a 5MP fixed focus color camera, a perfect imaging companion for iMX8 Quad Max. The e-CAM50_CUiMX8 camera is interfaced directly to the MIPI CSI-2 interface on the Toradex's Ixora carrier board for Apalis iMX8QM SOM. This camera is based on our popular low-light camera module, e-CAM55_CUMI0521_MOD which has 1/2.5" AR0521 CMOS Image sensor from ON Semiconductor® and a built-in Image Signal Processor (ISP). It has S-mount (M12) lens holder which allows customers to choose and use the lens according to their requirement.

With Capability to stream HD at 60fps and 5MP at 28fps, e-CAM50_CUiMX8 is the perfect partner for iMX8QM to run applications requiring low noise.
