VC MIPI Cable: The right connection

VC MIPI FPC Kabel und VC MIPI Kameramodul

VC MIPI FPC cable

Our specially developed FPC cable (Flexible Printed Circuit) is available in three standard variants with 15, 22 and 24 poles, in 60 mm, 100 mm and 200 mm lengths. It can thus be connected to all common single-board computers and CPU boards and makes optimum use of the available power of the MIPI interface.
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

Our MIPI cables have a trigger input and a flash output. They enable video streams as well as single shots and do not interfere with the host system. Individual settings such as shutter speed, gain, image size and position, and binning can be adjusted for each image. Very fast processes can be captured and synchronized with the cables and an external trigger.
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

for up to 10 meters cable length
The VC MIPI® cameras are available with an adapter permanently integrated into the design for fast data transmission via GMSL2 coaxial cable with MMCX connector. A deserializer is also available. This enables simple connection via the standard MIPI CSI-2 interface for functional models and prototypes.

VC Add-on Boards for even more Possibilities with MIPI

VC MIPI repeater- accessories for VC MIPI cameras

VC MIPI Repeater Board for up to 5-times longer cables

The VC MIPI® Repeater Board allows an extension of the MIPI cable lenghts up to 5 times the original FPC cable length. It also offers additional interfaces like a trigger input and flash trigger output. This enables to quickly and easily integrate external triggers and lighting without compromising the function of the host system.
Zubehör VC MIPI-Kameramodule: CMI Board

VC Compute Module Interface Board for Raspberry Pi

The VC CMI board is specially designed for the Raspberry Pi® Compute Module 3 and 3+. Form factor and connectors are optimally matched: You can simply plug on your Raspberry Pi®. Holes for mounting MIPI camera module and lens holder are also provided.

Lighting for MIPI Camera Modules

Accessories for VC MIPI camera modules: ring light

LED ring light

The LED ring light with 12 high-power LEDs enables the ideal illumination for your application. It is available in two versions: with infrared LEDs at 850 nm and red LEDs at 656 nm. It has an easy plug-in connection. For flexible lighting integration, the VC MIPI® CMI Board provides two 1.5 A LED controllers.

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

Zubehör MIPI Kameramodule: Polfilter negativ

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.

Zubehör MIPI Kameramodule: Polfilter positiv

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. 

 

Vision Components offers these two sensors as MIPI Camera Modules on request.
