e-Con Systems Launches MIPI CSI-2 Cameras for Google Coral Dev Board

Google Coral Development Board Camera Series

e-Con Systems has announced a camera series that can be used with the Google Coral Development board. There are two models: e-CAM50 CUCRL is a 5.0 MP MIPI CSI-2 camera and e-CAM30 CUCRL is a 3.4 MP MIPI CSI-2 camera.

Both Have Features In Common

Both support a variety of resolutions and were developed for AI devices. The cameras are color and fixed focus and can be connected directly to the Coral Development Board through P1 and J15 camera connector. 

Background on Google Coral Development Board

The Google Coral Development board was reported on extensively since its release in 2019. Two articles for the Coral Development Board and its most recent addons are the Google Coral Development Board announcement and the Coral Development Board’s latest mPCIe and M.2 cards.

Jetson Nano and Rock960 SBC’s Cameras

e-Con Systems previously made cameras for other SBC’s including NVIDIA Jetson TX1/TX2 cameras and cameras for Rockhip RK3399 based Rock960 development board, which are similar to the e-CAM50 CUCRL and e-CAM30 CUCRL. There is also a new camera for the NVIDIA Jetson Nano, called e-CAM50 CUNANO 5.0 MP.

Applications

The cameras are based on the AR0521 CMOS Image Sensor from ON Semiconductor, and designed for Coral Edge Computing and AI prototyping.  Some of the applications could be smart cities, parking lots, security programs, and medical devices.
