Automotive 8.3-MP low-cost camera module reference design with MIPI CSI-2 interface, PMIC, FPD-Link


Design files


This camera module reference design addresses the need for small, low-cost cameras in automotive driver assistance systems (ADAS) by combining a 8.3-megapixel imager with a 4.16-Gbps TI FPD™ Link III serializer. Additionally, it provides a power management integrated circuit (PMIC) power supply for both devices in an ultra-small form factor.

This design includes a high-speed serial interface to connect a remote automotive camera module to a display or machine vision processing system with a single coaxial cable transmitting both 8.3-MP RAW12 HDR video data and power.

  • Space-optimized design with integrated power supply that fits on a single 20 mm × 20 mm PCB
  • Integrated TPS650320-Q1 power supply includes three step-down converters and LDO to enable high efficiency and low noise supply generation
  • P2P compatible power supplies to enable functional safety applications
  • Enables camera applications up to 8 MP/27 fps using DS90UB953-Q1
  • 8.3-MP AR0820 image sensor from Onsemi providing HDR RAW12, RAW14, RAW16, RAW20, RAW24
  • Single Rosenberger Fakra coaxial connector for digital video, power, control, and diagnostics
