e-con Systems Launches 5-Megapixel UAC Autofocus USB Camera Module

e-CAM51_USB utilizes OmniVision’s OV5640 image sensor to render high quality images

ST. LOUIS and CHENNAI, India —May 30th, 2012 — e-con Systems Inc., a leading embedded design services company specializing in development of advanced camera solutions announces the launch of USB Camera - e-CAM51_USB , which houses a 5-megapixel pluggable Autofocus Camera Module e-CAM52_5640_MOD based on OmniVision’s OV5640 CMOS image sensor. The e-CAM51_USB supports GPIO and microphone with an integrated analog-to-digital converter (ADC). The e-CAM51_USB is USB Video Class (UVC) and USB Audio Class (UAC) compliant and hence doesn’t require any device driver installation on the PC side.

OmniVision’s OV5640 CameraChip™ sensor, which is part of the e-CAM52_5640_MOD, has an embedded ISP. The sensor features automatic image control functions including automatic exposure control (AEC), automatic white balance (AWB), automatic band filter (ABF), 50/60Hz automatic luminance detection, and automatic black level calibration (ABLC). Majority of these features are supported in e-CAM51_USB through the standard UVC protocol allowing all the third party applications on Linux and Windows based Operating Systems be able to work with our USB camera without any issues. The specialty features of e-CAM51_USB, such as GPIO control, Autofocus control and status, Manual focus etc., are supported through UVC Extension Unit interface. e-con Systems supports the developers with an Extended API DLL to leverage these features and supplies sample application that demonstrates these features.

“e-con Systems’ UAC Autofocus USB Camera is a highly compelling stand-alone camera solution based on OmniVision’s 5-megapixel SoC sensor,” commented Robbert Emery, business development manager at OmniVision. “OmniVision’s OV5640 image sensor offers on-chip image signal processing, including the 3A functions, JPEG compression, color correction matrix and image stabilization for consumer and industrial handheld applications.”
