4D Systems uCAM-III Serial Camera Module

4D Systems uCAM-III (microCAM-III) Serial Camera Module is a highly integrated, low-power camera module for embedded imaging applications. The uCAM-III is the revised version of the uCAM-II. This revised module is backward compatible, interchangeable, and provides greater control of complex imaging. 4D Systems uCAM-III attaches to any host system that requires a video camera or a JPEG-compressed still camera. The uCAM-III allows image output in both RAW and JPEG format. User commands are sent using a simple serial protocol. The uCAM-III module comes with a 5-wire connector and a standard 56° angle lens. A 76° or 116° lens option is also available.
