Usuage

The OV5642 camera module has parallel interface, it can’t be connected to Arduino or Raspberry pi directly. So user need to use our Arduino Camera Shield to connect to Arduino boards, or use USB camera shield to connect to Raspberry pi boards. If you want to connect the OV5642 directly to Arduino or Raspberry pi please check Arducam mini 5MP Plus camera module.
