To simplify prototyping of machine vision applications, Toradex has launched a new OV5640 5MP MIPI-CSI camera module. This is an add-on board for the Apalis system on modules (SoMs) and works with the firm’s Ixora carrier board.
The module enables to prototype machine vision applications leveraging advanced capabilities of Toradex modules to run deep neural networks, GPU accelerated OpenCV and other high-performance graphics applications.
The CSI camera module uses an OmniVision OV5640 camera sensor with built-in autofocus. The OV5640 is a low-voltage, high-performance, 1/4-inch, 5-megapixel (2592×1944) CMOS image sensor.
“The new camera module makes it easier for Toradex customers to prototype computer vision projects. Our Apalis computer modules are a proven platform for embedded vision applications. Technologies such as deep learning and frameworks like OpenCV, Tenserflow and Caffe are progressing quickly and enabling more and more possibilities in edge devices,” writes Daniel Lang, Chief Marketing Officer for Toradex.
The module is globally available in the Toradex Webshop. Users can also benefit from excellent support via channels like the Developer Centre and the Toradex Community, as well as direct support from Toradex offices around the globe.
