BeagleBone 3.1MP Camera Cape

The BeagleBone 3.1MP Camera Cape provides a portable camera solution for BeagleBone. Each Camera Cape is composed of a Sensor board and an Expansion board. The Sensor board carries a 3.1 megapixel camera sensor and transmits captured image data to the Expansion board over camera interface (CAM I/F). The Expansion board features a CSSP bridge connectivity device, which stores image data received from Sensor board and transfers them to the AM335x using general purpose memory controller (GPMC) interface.

Note: BeagleBone 3.1MP Camera Cape should be used with LCD7 Cape or DVI-D Cape for previewing and capturing photos.
