In order to meet the increasing need of Raspberry Pi compatible camera modules. The ArduCAM team now released a add-on camera module for Raspberry Pi which is fully compatible with official one. It attaches to Raspberry Pi by way of one of the two small sockets on the board upper Read more…
Where to find the source code ArduCAM shield latest library and examples can be downloaded from download section. Please download the correct library for the the different shield version. For the Rev.B please use the V2.x.x or below, for the Rev.C please use the V3.0.0 or above. What are the Read more…
With the great success of ArduCAM shield Rev.B, we received hundreds of comments and feedbacks from ArduCAM users. The ArduCAM team now released a more powerful ArduCAM shield Rev.C with past few months’ hard work. The new features list as follows: (more…)
This section describe the ArduCAM shield Rev.C hardware feature and user guide. For information about Rev.B, please refer here.
ArduCAM shield hardware integrates all the necessary components to interface with camera modules. User only need a extra support camera modules and a TF/SD card to start image capture.
The shield provide the following features:
- Dedicate DigtalVideoPort Camera Module Interface
- Standard SPI slave bus interface
- 3.2” TFT Color LCD Screen(a)
- Build-in 3Mbit FIFO Memory
- TF/SD Card Reader with LED indicator
- Use Arduino SPI / I2C dedicate pin out
- Well mated with UNO/MEGA2560/DUE/Leonardo boards
Note: (a) Model ArduCAM-F doesn’t not include a 3.2” LCD screen
ArduCAM Shield Pin Out
ArduCAM shield includes to sets of pin out see Figure 1, they are identical in function. One is Arduino standard, it can be well mate with standard Arduino boards like UNO, MEGA2560, Leonardo and DUE etc. The other one is alternative port which can be connect to any platform like Raspberry Pi. The detail pin out for each see Table 1 and Table 2.

Q: Where can I order camera modules and ArduCAM shield? A: Please order from our distributor www.uctronics.com Q: Where can I find the source code and schematic of ArduCAM shield? A: Please download source code from Download section, schematic can be found Rev.C and Rev.B. Q: What kind of Arduino Read more…
CMOS camera modules are widely used in mobile phones and web cameras, and the price is pretty low when in volume. Therefore it becomes the best choice for embedded applications. However there is barrier in both hardware and software when using camera modules and block the hobbyists off. That why ArduCAM is born. ArduCAM is an open source project for CMOS camera modules, which hide the complexity of capturing high speed high resolution image data stream and provide the source code configuration for camera modules. User can freely control the ArduCAM shield to accomplish their different tasks. The first release of ArduCAM shield target for Arduino and its compatible platforms like Maple, Chipkit. And we plan to move to more powerful platform like Raspberry PI, Beagle board or Pandaboard. (more…)
Improved Features: Provide two board options, ArduCAM-LF has both LCD and FIFO, ArduCAM-F only has FIFO ArduCAM-LF provide live video and real time snapshot Support both Arduino UNO and MEGA1280/2560 boards （but not limited to these boards) 3Mbit memory space and support the RAW RGB fromat resolution up to 640×600, Support Read more…
