Matching MIPI Accessories for your Project
Free standard drivers for all VC MIPI® sensors
VC MIPI® Drivers
All our VC MIPI Cameras come with suitable standard drivers, provided in source code. Just send us an email to request a driver free of charge.
Standard drivers for our VC MIPI® camera modules are already available for numerous processor boards and platforms such as Raspberry Pi®, NVIDIA® Jetson and NXP® including the new i.MX8M series. View the list below for all details.
List of VC MIPI® Drivers
VC MIPI® Cable: The right connection
VC MIPI® FPC-Cable
With four lanes and a processing speed of 1.5 GBit/s per lane achievable by most processors, transfer rates of 6 GBit/s are possible, which corresponds to 750MB/s with an 8-bit pixel resolution.
Individual MIPI Cables
For special requirements we develop customized cables with external trigger output or the possibility to connect I/O boards.
Design of the VC MIPI® Cables
- A flexible printed circuit board with a fully shielded backside and 100-Ω differential line pairs.
- 15-22-pin / 22-22-pin / 22-24-pin: with 2 / 4 transmission lanes for the connection to all common CPU boards
- 1x trigger input, 1x flash trigger output (without compromising the function of the host system)
- Available in 3 lengths: 60 mm | 100 mm | 200 mm

Lens Holder for MIPI Cameras
For S- & C/CS-Mount
Our standardized lens holders are suitable for S-mount and C/CS-mount lenses. They can be ordered directly with the MIPI cameras.
The lens holders are also compatible with our Compute Module Interface Board.
VC MIPI® Camera Modules with Polarizing Filter
Reduce glare and reflection
Reflective and shiny surfaces are a challenge for imaging sensors. Vision Components offers its MIPI Camera Modules with an optional polarizing filter that reduces reflection and glare and increases the contrast of the images. The filter foil is bonded directly onto the sensor package of the modules. The angle and direction of the filter can be determined.
This method, in which light is absorbed from one direction, is significantly less expensive than solutions with polarization filters on the sensor array and is still sufficient for many applications.
MIPI sensors with multi-directional filtering
For special applications where multi-directional polarization filtering is required, Sony's specially designed IMX250MZR and IMX252MZR image sensors are ideal. They can filter light from four different directions. Sie können Licht aus vier unterschiedlichen Richtungen filtern.
Vision Components offers these two sensors as MIPI Camera Modules on request.
