MT9N001 – 9.0 MP Camera Module


7 in stock (can be backordered)


MT9N001 – 9.0 MP Camera Module:

The MT9N001 – 9.0 MP Camera Module is based on the MT9N001 color sensor from Aptiva.

The sensor has a 1/2.3″ optical format, which combined with the pixel size of 1.75 µm x 1.75 µm, results in the 9.0 MP 3488 x 2616 image. This is a rolling shutter sensor, which captures an entire column (or row) simultaneously, and compiles the image by scanning across (or down). The lens and/or sensor do not have an IR-cut filter, so this module is appropriate for low-light photography. The standard lens mount for this module is the M12 mount, and ships with the LS-18023 lens. The key benefit of the standardized lens mount is the simplicity in swapping the lens – fisheye, wide-angle, telephoto, zoom, NoIR filter – all of which are available from DLSCorp. Note that this camera module can be special-ordered with either mount and any compatible lens (including the LS-18023CS) – click on the Lenses category to see our complete selection.

The camera module provides a 30-pin 0.5 mm pitch flexible flat cable secondary interface, which fits the ArduCAM USB Camera Shield or the ArduCAM USB3.0 Camera Shield, (or your custom-built interface). Note: the USB3.0 secondary interface requires an adapter card that is currently under development. ArduCAM supplies a wide variety of camera modules, all are compatible with the USB Camera Shield, and all are available from DLSCorp.
