The solution for compact designs

With a size of just 18 mm x 26 mm, the mini version of the VM-020 can be used wherever space is limited. The phyCAM-M connector enables direct interchangeability with VM-020-M and other PHYTEC board-level cameras with MIPI CSI-2 interface.

Precise centering holes simplify the adjustment of the camera module during assembly. The VM-120 is optionally available with a high-quality M12 lens holder, which also ensures optimized heat dissipation. Complete service: Let us offer you the right lens with assembly service at the same time.

Full HD with 120 fps

The Global Shutter Sensor AR0234 from OnSemi enables excellent image capture at an fps of 120 Hz, both for fast-moving subjects and for flashed scenes.
The 2,3 megapixel camera module is available with a monochrome or color sensor and has an integrated dynamic defective pixel correction and an automatic exposure control unit. The wide temperature range and long-term availability enable the design of professional embedded vision solutions.

The phyCAM-M interface transmits the MIPI CSI-2 data in the highest signal quality. phyCAM-M is EMC-optimized and offers additional functions such as trigger and strobe in the same cable.
