e-CAM131_iMX8 - Auto Focus Camera for i.MX8 Quad Max

e-CAM131_iMX8 is a 13MP auto focus color camera, a perfect imaging companion for iMX8 Quad Max. The e-CAM131_iMX8 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 13MP camera module, e-CAM130_MI1335_MODwhich has 1/3.2" AR1335 CMOS Image sensor from ON Semiconductor® and a built-in Image Signal Processor (ISP).
