e-con Systems Inc., a leading embedded camera solution company, today announced the launch of e-CAM50_CU96, A lowlight 5MP camera board for 96Boards compliant Rock960 developer kit featuring Rockchip RK3399 processor. e-CAM50_CU96 is based on OnSemi’s 1/2.5″ AR0521, a 2.2 µm pixel CMOS image sensor with integrated Image Signal Processor (ISP).
e-CAM50_CU96 is capable of streaming HD (1280 x 720) at 70 fps, FHD (1920 x 1080) at 60 fps and 5 MP (2592 x 1944) at 25 fps in uncompressed (UYVY). The higher Signal to Noise Ratio (SNR) supported by this camera helps to produce clear images without noise and a better dynamic range helps in retaining more details in shadows and highlights. Along with these features, the powerful in-built ISP helps to bring out the best-in-class video in uncompressed UYVY format. The camera is also provided with the S-mount (M12) lens holder that enables customers to choose the lens from a wide range of options as per their requirements.
The Rock960 platform kit is based on the RK3399 SoC which is a Dual Cortex-A72 + Quad Cortex-A53 CPU, with up to 2 GHZ frequency. This board comes with 4GB RAM, 32GB eMMC, USB3.1 type C, HDMI 2.0, 4 lane CSI-MIPI, etc on the 96Boards Consumer Edition Standard form factor.
With Capability to stream 5MP at 25 fps, Rockchip based Rock960 is a perfect partner for e-CAM50_CU96 to run applications requiring high-resolution images. High-quality video from e-CAM50_CU96 integrated with Rockchip’s powerful multi-core processor enables running of robust vision and image processing applications (Realtime camera vision application eg: Face detection, object identification).
e-CAM50_CU96 is currently available as Engineering samples for evaluation. Customers interested in evaluating e-CAM50_CU96 can request samples from e-con Systems’ online store.
