µCAM(120) Serial JPEG Camera Module - RS232

    µCAM(120) Serial JPEG Camera Module - RS232

    Manufacturer: 4D Systems

    This product is discontinued.

    The uCAM-RS232 (microCAM) is a highly integrated serial camera module which can be attached to any host system that requires a video camera or a JPEG compressed still camera for embedded imaging applications.

    The module uses an OmniVision CMOS VGA color sensor along with a JPEG compression chip that provides a low cost and low powered camera system. The module has an on-board serial interface (RS232 levels) that is suitable for a direct connection to any host controller or a PC system with a COM port.

    User commands are sent using a simple serial protocol that can instruct the camera to send low resolution (160x120 or 80x60) single frame raw images for a quick viewing or high resolution (640x480 or 320x240) JPEG images for storage or viewing.

    The uCAM comes in a compact form factor with a built in lens and a 4-wire connector that provides easy access to both power and serial data.


    • Small size, low cost and low powered camera module for embedded imaging applications.
    • 5.0V DC Supply @64mA.
    • On-board EEPROM provides a command-based interface to external host via RS-232 serial link.
    • UART: up to 115.2Kbps for transferring JPEG still pictures or 160x128 preview images with 0.75fps.
    • 2 meter cable terminated with a DB-9.
    • On board OmniVision OV7640/8 VGA color sensor and JPEG CODEC for various resolutions.
    • Built-in down sampling, clamping and windowing circuits for VGA, QVGA, 160x120 or 80x60 image resolutions.
    • Built-in color conversion circuits for 2-bit gray, 4-bit gray, 8-bit gray, 12-bit RGB, 16-bit RGB or standard JPEG preview images.
    • No external DRAM required.
    • Auto power down having not received any signal from the UART port for 10 seconds.
