Product information "Pcam 5C: 5 MP Fixed Focus Color Camera Module"

The Pcam 5C is an imaging module meant for use with FPGA development boards. The module is designed around the Omnivision OV5640  5 megapixel (MP) color image sensor. This sensor includes various internal processing functions that can improve image quality, including automatic white balance, automatic black level calibration, and controls for adjusting saturation, hue, gamma and sharpness. Data is transferred over a dual-lane MIPI CSI-2 interface, which provides enough data bandwidth to support common video streaming formats such as 1080p (at 30 frames per second) and 720p (at 60 frames per second). The module is connected to the FPGA development board via a 15-pin flat-flexible cable (FFC). The Pcam 5C comes with a set of open source Vivado IP cores on FPGA and Zynq host boards, a 10 cm flat-flexible cable and a factory-installed fixed focus lens with M12 lens mount, so it is ready to use out of the box.


  • 5MP color system-on-chip image sensor
  • 15-pin FFC connector for image data
  • Dual lane MIPI CSI-2 image sensor interface
  • Supports QSXGA@15Hz, 1080p@30Hz, 720p@60Hz, VGA@90Hz and QVGA@120Hz
  • Output formats include RAW10, RGB565, CCIR656, YUV422/420, YCbCr422, and JPEG compression*
  • Standard M12 lens mount for lens interchangeability
  • Ships with 10 cm cable and factory installed fixed-focus lens
  • Small PCB size for flexible designs (4.0 cm x 2.5 cm)
  • 1×7 straight 100-mil header for access to auxiliary camera signals
  • Works with Pcam compatible Digilent development boards

* JPEG compressed output is a feature of the OV5640, but is currently untested on this module

Training Materials

The training materials include the hands-on workbook and project files. It illustrates the viability of real-time video processing in reconfigurable logic instead of software running on a general-purpose microprocessor. Engineers, developers and academia can learn High Level Synthesis (HLS) design flow to configure the field programmable gate array (FPGA), design a video processing pipeline and culminate in the implementation of an edge detection application.
