Introduction

Arducam USB3 camera shield is the latest USB3.0 camera shields, it offers the improved performance and enhanced functions than the previous USB2.0 camera shield. It not only supports high resolution and high frame rate image sensors, but also supports stereoscopy camera and IRCUT control feature. With the given camera configuration files, user can switch between different cameras without any effort. It is the ideal solution for camera evaluation/testing, robot/drone, IoT, machine vision and scientific applications.Now it well supports both PC and embedded system like Raspberry Pi, and also can provide customized support for Odroid, Beaglebone Black, Nvidia JETSON TK/TX boards. Please also note that when this USB3 camera used on USB2 port the performance will be greatly degraded.
