As a way to meet the increasing need of Raspberry Pi compatible camera modules. The ArduCAM team now released a revision C add-on camera module which is fully compatible with official Raspberry Pi board. It optimizes the optical performance than the previous Pi cameras, and give user a much clear and sharp image. Also it provides the FREX and STROBE signals which can be utilized for multi-camera synchronize capture with proper camera driver firmware.
It attaches to Raspberry Pi by the use of one of the most two small sockets on the board upper surface. This interface uses the dedicated CSI interface, which used to be designed especially for interfacing to cameras. The CSI bus is capable of extremely high data rates, and it exclusively carries pixel data. The camera is supported in the recent version of Raspbian, Raspberry Pi’s preferred operating system.
The board itself is tiny, at around 36mm x 36mm. The highlight of our module is that the Lens is replaceable in comparison to official one, making it perfect for mobile or other applications where size and image quality are important. It connects to Raspberry Pi by the use of a short ribbon cable. The camera is attached to the BCM2835/BCM2836 processor on the Pi by way of the CSI bus, a higher bandwidth link which carries pixel data from the camera back to the processor. This bus travels along the ribbon cable that attaches the camera board to the Pi.
