Appletec to Supply CCMs Exclusively to Arrow

The choice of CCMs will depend on many factors in the requirements of the application.

Arrow Electronics has signed a deal with Appletec under which Appletec will produce a range of compact camera modules (CCMs) exclusively for Arrow.

Appletec CCMs ArrowThe CCMs are intended for developers who want to add an embedded vision capability to products used in sectors including industrial, medical, security and automotive.

A customization service will be available to support a variety of interconnect solutions.

The choice of CCMs will depend on many factors in the requirements of the application.

For example, the amount of detail to be captured will determine the choice of resolution and frame rate, while the selected field of view (FOV) and depth of field will reflect the area to be covered.

The Arrow CCMs use CMOS (complementary metal-oxide-semiconductor) image sensors from onsemi and can utilize the image signal processor (ISP) on the customer’s mainboard where to minimize cost, they do not include their ISP.

Two fixed focus CCMs are available initially, offering 0.3 or 4MP sensors and fields of view ranging from 49 to 84 degrees. Frame rates range from 36.7fps (at 720p) and 75fps (at VGA) up to 360fps.

A CCM with auto-focus and 13MP sensor will be added soon offering 30fps and 64-degree FOV.

A fourth CCM, based on a 1.26MP, 30fps sensor with integrated Image Flow Processor completes the portfolio, enabling vision functionality even for MCU platforms without additional hardware components, keeping the design cost-effective.

System developers can write their software drivers for the CCMs or make use of the driver produced by eInfochips, an Arrow company, which is due to be released at the end of Q1 2022.

Companies that wish to accelerate development times even further can deploy one of the fully plug-and-play camera reference designs announced by Arrow recently, which include related technologies.
