Applications

  • Assets Monitoring
  • Space Journey
  • Environmental Observation
  • Dynamics Capture
  • loT Automation

Features

  • Easy Using: Extremely easy to use. High-level commands were built in so you manipulate the camera through API access like using a DSLR camera via button clicks.
  • Power Saving: Quick sleep and quick wake-up (within 42ms). No worry of loading long register settings. The power consumption is as low as under 200mW.
  • Multiplexing: Up to 4 cameras running on a single MCU by using an adapter board. They capture at the same time with sequential readout then.
  • Open Source SDK: The SDK is fully open-source with MIT license. A lean architecture with a hardware abstraction layer, enabling you to add a new MCU without effort.
  • One Fits All: It fits any microcontroller with a single standard SPI interface (either native or mimic). 8-bit, 16-bit or 32-bit, ARM, RISC-V, or others. Arduino, STM8/STM32, ESP8266/ESP32, MSP430, Nordic, Renesas, and countless more.
