• 5MP Serial JPEG Camera Module
    • TTL/RS232/RS485 interface
    • VC0706 Protocol compatible
    • Fully Customizable


Spinel SC50MPA series Camera is a highly integrated serial camera module which can be attached to any host system that requires a JPEG compressed still camera for embedded imaging applications.
The SC50MPA uses a 1/4’’ CMOS color image sensor along with a JPEG compression chip that provides a low cost and low powered camera system. The module has an on-board serial interface (TTL/RS232/RS485) that is suitable for a direct connection to any host microcontroller UART or a PC system COM port.
The SC20MPC camera is capable of outputting JPEG format images only.
User commands are sent using a simple serial protocol (VC0706 protocol compatible) that can instruct the camera to send high resolution (160×120 to 2592×1944) JPEG images for storage or viewing. PC test tool and sample code are provided for easy testing and programming into microcontrollers.
The SC20MPC camera comes in a compact form factor with a built in lens and a 4-Pin PH 2.0 socket connector that provides easy access to both power and serial data.
There is a locking screw on the barrel of the lens holder, which is used to lock the focus in place once set, to prevent it from inadvertently being changed.
