Automotive 1.3M Camera Module Reference Design with OV10640, DS90UB913A and Power over Coax


Design files


This camera design demonstrates a very small solution size for 1.3 Megapixel automotive cameras. Only a single coax connection is required to provide digital video, power, camera control and diagnostics. Output video format is 10-bit up to 100MHz or 12-bit up to 75MHz.

  • Size optimized design fits on a single PCB 20x20 mm
  • Power supply optimized for small size and low noise
  • Diagnostic and Built In Self Test (BIST)
  • Single Rosenberger Fakra coax connector for digital video, power, control and diagnostics
  • 1.3 Mpixel HDR image sensor OV10640 from OmniVision providing 12bit raw image data
  • Includes mounting tab for attachment directly to tripod
  • Power over Coax input can range from 4V to 17V
