Spinel SC20MPE Camera is a high-end reliable serial camera which can be attached to any host system that requires a JPEG compressed still camera for embedded imaging applications. The camera uses a 1/2.7’’ CMOS color image sensor along with a JPEG compression chip that provides a low powered camera system. The camera has an on-board serial interface (TTL/RS232/RS485) that is ideal for a direct connection to any host microcontroller UART or a PC system COM port.
The SC20MPE camera is capable of outputting 2MP JPEG format images only.
The SC20MPE camera has the best performance in the market through smart illumination function (the LED only turns on when it’s necessary), long IR range, low LUX 0.005, waterproof IP67 and low temperature rated, OSD feature, wide voltage, color night image capturing. PC test tool and sample code are provided for easy testing and programming into microcontrollers.
As the camera runs operating system, the start-up/boot up time is about 10-15 seconds, if the power consumption is concerned, please consider the alternative SC20MPF camera with fast start-up (3-5 seconds).
