In this demonstration we will illustrate how to transfer image wireless over Bluetooth with Arduino boards. To complete this demo we need an ArduCAM shield, a OV2640 Camera module, an Arduino UNO board or a Mega2560 R3 board, and a Bluetooth TTL transceiver module. (more…)
The ArduCAM shield has 6 general purpose IOs which can be set as input or output and greatly extend the power for the Arduino board which has limited IO resources. The structure of the IOs in the ArduCAM shield is the same as the one in the AVR chip, it has a direction register(DDR), a input register(PIN) and output register(PORT). In this demonstration, we will illustrate how to set the GPIOs in the ArduCAM shield as an input and use a PIR sensor triggering the shield to start a capture. (more…)
ArduChip is the core of the ArduCAM, which incoperates a Altera MAXII CPLD EPM240 as main processor. The main task of the ArduChip is do the real time DMA transfer between Camera module and the 3.2″ LCD and act as Arduino, Camera and LCD bus multiplexer. It also provides AVR like GPIO expansion, it can be set as input or output and resolve the problem of limited IO resources in Arduino board. The GPIOs can be used as event trigger in and trigger out.

ArduCAM is Arduino based open source camera platform which is well mated to Arduino boards. It now supports Arduino UNO board and we will add support Mega1280/2560 and new released Leonardo, Maple and Chipkit are also in planning.
These demo pictures are captured from MT9D111(SOC2010) camera module with USB our develop board, it is a illustration for the image quality of the sensor. Note that they are captured under the low Read more…
