Arducam Pivariety is a Raspberry Pi camera solution to take the advantage of using its hardware ISP functions. Using Arducam Pivariety camera modules, users can get better performance and a wider variety of camera, lens options. For a long time, Raspberry Pi users are limited to use the closed-source official supported camera driver and camera modules (V1/V2/HQ). Now Arducam made it possible to provide well-tuned ISP for Pivariety camera modules with Auto Exposure, Auto White Balance, Lens Shading Correction, etc.
Pivariety AR0234 Color Global Shutter Camera eliminates rolling shutter artifacts to better capture fast-moving objects. Pivariety AR0234 Camera uses the
libcamera framework and the way to access the camera is
Gstreamer. In addition, Pivariety AR0234 Global Shutter Camera having an external trigger function, which is used to capture the image and helps in synchronized streaming by connecting two or multiple cameras. In production applications (such as assembly line production), the external trigger mode can synchronize the camera with other devices.
V4L2 interface is supported, only RAW format images can be obtained, without ISP support.
