Raspberry Pi Compute Module 3/3+ goes Embedded Vision with VC MIPI

Embedded Vision System quick & easy with our Compute Module Interface (CMI) Board

With our new VC MIPI Embedded Vision Kit for the Raspberry Pi Compute Module 3 or 3+, you can quickly setup full-fledged, industrial-grade embedded vision systems.

Your benefit: A cost-effective and powerful solution for all development processes from concept design to prototype development to serial production. To meet OEM requirements and qualify for industrial use, the kit’s long-term availability is ensured. Designed and manufactured in Germany, all components have been optimized for full interoperability.

VC MIPI Compute Module Interface Board for Raspberry Pi
The CMI board for inserting a Raspberry Pi Compute Module contains a lens holder, a MIPI camera, a lens holder, and numerous interfaces.

The Raspberry CM is simply inserted in the newly developed VC Compute Module Interface (CMI) board, the central part of the VC MIPI Embedded Vision Kit.The CMI board features a VC MIPI camera module including a software driver, an FPC (flexible printed circuit) VC MIPI cable, and an S-mount/M12 lens holder. Trigger functionality, crucial for industrial vision applications, is also a standard feature.

By default, the bundle contains OmniVision's OV9281 image sensor with a 1-MP resolution, 120 fps frame rate, and global shutter. As an alternative, customers can choose from the full range of VC MIPI camera modules, all of which connect to the CMI board: high-resolution image sensors up to over 20 MP, with either global shutter, global reset shutter, or rolling shutter. Remarkably, Vision Components even offers MIPI camera modules with sensors that do not have a native MIPI interface but are well-suited for industrial embedded vision applications.

To facilitate integration in OEM designs, the VC CMI board comprises an SD card slot for additional memory, GigE and USB interfaces, a trigger input, a flash trigger output, digital interfaces (four inputs, four outputs), a display output, and sockets for two MIPI camera modules for optional stereo vision applications.

The freely programmable integrated FPGA enables customer-specific adjustments of image acquisition and trigger functionality. As the default setting, an external trigger signal is sent synchronously to the two MIPI modules. The manufacturer also offers an LED ring light with a rated power of up to 2 x 1.5 A, which is powered and controlled by the integrated lighting controller.
