OmniVision SCCB Camera Adapter Board


1 in stock (can be backordered)


OmniVision SCCB Camera Adapter Board:

The OmniVision SCCB Camera Adapter Board (B0012) hosts most of the compatible SCCB Camera Sensors from OmniVision. The benefit of the adapter board is the lower cost of trying different sensors. Rather than buying several camera boards, simply replace one sensor with another on the adapter board.

Lens Mounts:

The sensors compatible with this adapter board are sold with a “stock” lens. So, it is not possible to use an M12 or CS lens with this product.

Camera Shields:

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″ pitch connector. Or, you may purchase one of the available ArduCAM camera shields.

The ArduCAM USB Camera Shields USB2 Rev D (B0095) or USB3 Rev C (B0111) and Parallel Adapter Board (B0126) provide you a USB connection to a Windows, x86 Linux, Nvidia Jetson, or Raspberry Pi computer for these camera modules. You may use the ArduCAM F Shield Rev V2 (B0051) or the ArduCAM LF Shield Rev V2 (B0052) to connect to Arduino system boards. Open-source software and binaries are provided on the ArduCAM GitHub site (see link below) for these shields.
