The perfect fit for MIPI-modules from the pros

On the one side we've got camera modules with the MIPI CSI-2 interface - and drivers, cables and more hardware with additional functions on the other side.

Along the way to an Embedded Vision Solution, a lot of different components are necessary. With our accessories, we make a solid contribution and even make designing an embedded vision system easier for you.

All our components are specifically designed and well-proven in practise. Look and see!

VC MIPI® Cables: Tailor-made power

VC MIPI cable -  shielded FPC cables for VC MIPI camera modules

VC MIPI® Cables

We especially designed a shielded FPC (flexible printed circuit) cable to achieve a reliable data transfer without any loss. There are two types of cable available: 15-pin and 22-pin. Thus, you can connect the MIPI camera module directly - without any additional board - to your CPU board, i.e. the Raspberry Pi®. Another benefit: We can use the full capacity of the MIPI CSI-2 interface!

MIPI CSI-2 camera modules for 2 or 4 lanes

The FPC cable connects the VC MIPI® camera modules with 22-pin connector directly with the 15-22 pin (2 lanes) or 22-22-pin (4 lanes) MIPI interface. With that, all data can be transferred extremely fast.
With four lanes and a processor rate of 1.5 Gbps per lane, that most CPUs can handle. That makes 6 Gbps and 750 MB/s at 8-bit pixel resolution, which is twice as fast as USB 3 cameras.

Structure of VC MIPI® cables:

  • A flexible printed circuit board with a fully shielded backside and 100-Ω differential line pairs.
  • 15-22-pins (2 transmission lanes) or
  • 22-22-pins (4 transmission lanes) depending on CPU
  • 1 trigger input, 1 flash trigger output
    (without compromising the function of the host system)
  • available in 3 lengths: 60 mm | 100 mm | 200 mm

Video streams and single acquisitions
The trigger input provides both video streams and single acquisitions. Settings can be adjusted individually for every image:

  • Exposure time
  • Gain
  • Image size and position
  • Binning

Even very fast applications can be captured and synchronized with that.

VC MIPI-Repeater Boards

Cable extension up to 5 times!

You need to bridge a longer gap?
No problem with the help of the VC MIPI® repeater board you can extend the cable length up to a factor of 5!

An absolute PLUS for your MIPI camera module:
The VC additional boards!

VC MIPI® Repeater Board

The VC MIPI® Repeater Board provides both for a wider scope and offers additional interfaces like a trigger input and a flash trigger output at the same time. With that, you are able to refit quickly and easily CPU boards, that don't provide these interfaces.

Additional extra: With this board you can extend the MIPI cable lenghts for 5 times.

  • Connections for 2 MIPI camera modules
  • programmable FPGA for individual image acquisition
  • Interfaces: Gbit Ethernet + USB
  • Display output
  • 1 trigger input, 1 flash trigger output
  • 1 SD card slot
  • LED controller 2x1.5 A
  • 4 inputs & 4 outputs
  • Dimensions: 125 x 57 x 30 mm

Lighting for MIPI camera modules

By the way: The lens holder is also compatible with our Compute Module Interface board.

VC MIPI Modules
now available with polarizing filters

MIPI camera modules with polarizing filters

Polarizing filters

Highly reflective surfaces and specular objects are challenging for image sensors. To reduce reflection and glare and to increase the contrast of images, Vision Components now offers its MIPI camera modules with optional polarizing filters. They are glued directly onto the sensor package of the modules. The angle and direction of the filter can be chosen to fit the specific application’s requirements. 

Using these filter foils, light from one angle of incidence can be filtered. This is significantly less expensive, compared to solutions with polarization filters on the sensor array, filtering light from up to four directions of incidence.

For applications with highest requirements regarding multi-directional filtering, Vision Components offers the Sony IMX250MZR and IMX252MZR sensors as MIPI modules on request. These sensors are equipped with grid polarizers with four different angles, placed on each pixel.

The polarization filters can be requested when ordering the camera modules. They are adapted and applied according to customer specifications.
