  • Highly Integrated: Suppot MIPI interface without any MIPI adapter board
  • Color Global Shutter: 2.3MP AR0234 Color Global shutter sensor
  • General Solution: Compatible with any hardware you choose
  • Developer-friendly SDK & API for easy integration



To help customers evaluate the cameras or build a prototype with your own circuits without dealing with fine pin pitch flex cable or soldering balls, Arducam released the evaluation kit with camera breakout boards and Arducam USB2/USB3 camera shield without writing a single line of code.
Arducam AR0234 Color Global Shutter Camera eliminates rolling shutter artifacts to better capture fast-moving objects. This camera can be used for dynamic capture of high-speed moving objects, real-time monitoring of factory machines, etc.
The highlight of the new USB2.0 camera shield is that it supports MIPI interface sensors without any MIPI adapter board. It has an onboard 16MByte hardware frame buffer, and overcomes the bandwidth and dropping frames issue when using the software frame buffer scheme.
