Frequent Asked Questions
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?
Q: What kind of Arduino boards will be support?
A: The ArduCAM shield Rev.C support all families of Arduino boards including DUE. It has been tested on the following Arduino boards:
Q: What is the max resolution will be support?
A: The resolution is depend on the max frame buffer size. Now the ArduCAM has build in 3Mbit FiFo, it support following resolution:
|640||600||RGB Raw, Mono 8bit|
Q: What kind of camera modules does ArduCAM support?
A: The following list shows the support of camera modules, we will add support for more camera modules in the future.
|Resolution||Camera modules Part No.||Support|
Q: Can I connect OV7670 directly to Arduino board without ArduCAM shield?
A: The OV7670 data speed is about 6MHz~24MHz, the Arduino board is too slow to catch up with the camera data stream’s speed. So user has to use extra hardware like ArduCAM shield to buffer a full frame, then read out the image byte by byte with fairly low speed.
Q: How can I customize settings on it using register values (brightness, exposure, speed)?
Yes, we can help you with the brightness, speed , exposure level settings
A: Please contact us for the customized settings.
Q: My lab is interested in building large numbers of x-ray detectors using consumer-grade CMOS
sensors. Do you have some kind of camera modules for that?
A: Yes, the MT9M001 module is monochrome image sensor which is used in Xbox360 and suitable for image processing.
Q: I’m working on a project where I need to trigger 15 digital photo cameras simultaneously.
Is it possible to daisy chain these camera shields to trigger multiple cameras?
A: It is no problems to trigger multi-cameras in parallel or daisy chain. There is external trigger input in ArduCAM shield, user can connect them together and trigger them simultaneously.
Q: How can I make the LCD display brighter.
A: The LCD back light is controlled by R6 and RN7.You can reduce the value of these two resistors to make the backlight much brighter.
