MT9Mxxx – 1.3 MP Camera Sensor on Adapter Board
The MT9Mxxx – 1.3 MP Camera Sensor on Adapter Board are based on the MT9M112 color sensor from Aptiva (B0064) and the MT9M001 monochrome sensor (B0063). The sensors have a 1/2.0″ optical format, which combined with the pixel size of 5.2 µm x 5.2 µm, results in the 1.3 MP 1280 x 1024 SXGA image. These are rolling shutter sensors, which capture an entire column (or row) simultaneously, and compile the image by scanning across (or down).
The color sensor and/or lens have an IR-cut filter, so the B0064 module is not suitable for IR photography. However, the monochrome sensor and lens do not have an IR-cut filter, so the B0063 module is suitable for IR photography.
Lens / Mounts:
This adapter board does not offer a lens mount, but uses the stock lens supplied with the sensor. However, MT9M001 – 1.3 MP Camera Module (color and monochrome) are available, with a bundled M12 LS-6020 lens (IR or NoIR) / mount, or simply a 13 mm plastic M12 mount. Also see the MT9M001 – 1.3 MP Camera Sensor.
The key benefit of the standard lens mounts available with the MT9M001 – 1.3 MP Camera Module is the simplicity in swapping the lens – fisheye, wide-angle, telephoto, zoom, IR or NoIR filter – all of which are available from DLSCorp. Click on the Camera Lenses product category for the complete selection of ArduCAM lenses. Be sure to verify the compatible lens mount height must include 13 mm for each lens selected. Note: these cameras uses a 22 mm pitch lens mount, which is only available with 13 mm height plastic mount. Click on the Camera Lens Mounts product category for information about lens mounts, including compatibility with the various lenses.
In the Arduino world, a “shield” is a piggy-back circuit board that provides additional functionality to the development board. In this context, a camera shield provides the required interface from the camera module to your computer. You may choose to create your own custom-built hardware interface via the 20-pin 0.1″ / 2.54 mm pitch interface. Or, you will need to purchase one of the available ArduCAM camera shields. The ArduCAM USB Camera Shield provides you a USB connection to a Windows, Linux, or Raspberry Pi computer for these camera modules. Open-source software and binaries are provided on the ArduCAM GitHub site (see link below) for these shields. ArduCAM supplies a wide variety of camera modules that are compatible with their USB Camera Shields, and all are available from DLSCorp.
