0.3MP 100fps OV7251

Introduction

Arducam now provide low cost high frame 0.3MP global shutter camera module basd on Omnivison OV7251 black and white image sensor. The OV7251 is a small form factor, low power CameraChip™ sensor that uses a global shutter to reduce or eliminate unwanted image artifacts, which occur with traditional rolling shutter image sensors as a result of motion during image capture. The sensor’s global shutter and excellent low-light sensitivity allow it to be used for any application that has a need for gesture detection, head and eye tracking, and depth and motion detection.

Leveraging the industry’s smallest global shutter pixel, the black and white OV7251 is capable of capturing VGA (640×480) resolution video at 100 frames per second (fps), QVGA (320×240) at 180 fps with binning, and QQVGA (160×120) at 360 fps with binning and skipping. The OV7251’s high frame rates make it an ideal solution for low-latency machine vision applications.
