The HM01B0 from Himax Imaging is an ultra low power CMOS Monochrome Image Sensor that enables the integration of an “Always On” camera for computer vision applications such as gestures, intelligent ambient light and proximity sensing, tracking and object identification. The sensor allows the sensor to consume very low power of <2mW at QVGA 30FPS. This low power consumption and vision applications make this camera the perfect pair for the SparkFun Edge Development Board and comes with a ribbon cable that mates to the camera connector populated on the Edge board.
The HM01B0 contains 320 x 320 pixel resolution and supports a 320 x 240 window mode which can be readout at a maximum frame rate of 60FPS, and a 2×2 monochrome binning mode with a maximum frame rate of 120FPS. The video data is transferred over a configurable 1bit, 4bit or 8bit interface with support for frame and line synchronization. The sensor integrates black level calibration circuit, automatic exposure and gain control loop, self-oscillator and motion detection circuit with interrupt output to reduce host computation and commands to the sensor to optimize the system power consumption.
Note: The SparkFun Edge is NOT included with the camera and will need to be purchased separately.
