Low light & WDR: SC30MPA

    • 3MP Serial JPEG Camera Module
    • TTL/RS232/RS485 interface
    • Up to 921600bps for TTL, 230400bps for RS232
    • VC0706 Protocol compatible
    • Fully Customizable


Spinel SC30MPA Camera is a highly integrated serial JPEG camera module which can be attached to any host system that requires a JPEG compressed still camera for embedded imaging applications. The module uses a 1/2.8’’ CMOS color image sensor along with a DSP 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 SC230MPA camera is capable of outputting JPEG format images only. It can capture images up to 2304x1296 pixels at 921600bps when the camera is equipped with TTL/UART interface, it’s an upgrade from SC20MPB camera for higher resolution, as well as better low light and WDR performance.

The SC30MPA camera module comes in a compact form factor with a built in lens and a 4 pin PH 2.0 connector that provides easy access to both power and serial data. PC test tool is provided for easy testing.
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.
