Camera Modules

This Product Selection Guide contains information to help select products in the Camera Modules category on DigiKey.com

Camera Modules are ready-to-use modules that include an image sensor, lens, and supporting electronics. These devices can be filtered by color, resolution, shutter type, frames per second, lens mount, and more.


SelectionCharacteristics

Color: Indicates the spectrum(s) of light the device is designed to detect.

Resolution: Indicates the visual resolution of the device, either in standard monitor format or in megapixels.

Frames per Second: Indicates the maximum number of full-frame images per second that an image sensor is capable of transferring.

Shutter: Describes the type of shutter the device uses to let light expose the sensor.

Lens Mount: A callout of the specification for the mount the lens uses.

Sensor: Indicates the specific sensor chip being used.

Type: Indicate the technology being used for the sensing.

Interface: Indication of which interface(s) or protocol(s) are used by the device to communicate with other components in the system.

Pixel Size: Indicates the physical dimensions of the imaging pixel used in the sensor.

Mounting Type: Indicates how the device is attached.

Package / Case: Indicates the type of protective case used on an electronic component to allow easy handling, installation, and protection. This selection was determined to be the closest industry standard applicable to the supplier device packaging. Typically it is best to check the actual dimensions from the datasheet rather than depend on this terminology when designing your circuit.

Supplier Device Package: This is what the manufacturer calls the package of this device. They are manufacturer specific. It is typically best to use the actual dimensions from the datasheets rather than to go by this terminology when designing your circuit.

Size / Dimension: The physical dimensions of the device. Typically length by width.

Height (Max): Indicates the overall height of the device.
