4D Systems has released a highly integrated, low power camera module that is targeted at embedded imaging applications. The uCAM-III includes 128kB of RAM for greater control of complex imaging and has commands for exposure, contrast and brightness control. It comes with a 5-wire connector and a standard 56° angle lens. 76° and 116° degree lens options are also available.
The module attaches to any host system that requires a video camera or a JPEG compressed still camera.
