12MP IMX477/IMX577

Introduction

Arducam IMX477/IMX577 camera breakout incorporates Sony Semiconductor 1/2.3−inch CMOS active−pixel digital imaging sensor IMX477/IMX577 with 1.55um x 1.55um Exmor RS technology . It can support 12-megapixel 4056 (H) × 3040 (V)  digital still images. Full resolution @60 frame/s (Normal), 4K2K @60 frame/s (Normal), 1080p @240 frame/sFull resolution @40 frame/s (12 bit Normal), Full resolution @30 frame/s (DOL-HDR, 2 frame) based on 4 lane MIPI setup. IMX577 is upgrade version compared to IMX477 and register settings are slightly different in some ways.

Please note that it is the RAW sensor which doesn’t include ISP (Image Signal Processing) on the image sensor chip, so it only supports manual exposure, manual gain settings when used on the platform which doesn’t support ISP. This module is basically designed to be used for Raspberry Pi and Jetson Nano using 2-lane MIPI setup, the frame rate is only half of the specification claimed.
