A 300K pixels (VGA) highly integrated serial camera module can be connected to any host system that requires a video camera or a JPEG compressed still camera for embedded imaging applications.
SC03MPF module uses a CMOS VGA color image sensor along with VC0706 chip that provides a low cost and low powered camera system. The module has an on-board serial interface (TTL/RS232) that is suitable for a direct connection to any host micro-controller serial or PC system COM port.
User commands are sent using VC0706 protocol that can instruct the camera to send high resolution JPEG images for storage or viewing. The SC03MPF comes in a compact format with a built in lens and a 6-Pin PH2.0 connector that provides easy access to power, serial data and videos.
It outputs NTSC/PAL video and can take snapshots of that video (in color) and transmit them over the serial link. You can snap pictures at 640×480, 320×240 or 160×120 and they’re pre-compressed JPEG images which makes them nice and small and easy to store on an SD card. Perfect for a data-logging, security, or photography project.
The SC03MPF serial camera comes with additional feature allowing users to change the default values, such as default baud rate, default image size and color/or white and black image through PC software VC0706 CommTool by writing parameters into EEPROM, please refer to the “E2PROM Configuration Instruction” as shown in documents below.
