Leopard Imaging Camera - 136 Degree FOV

The Leopard Imaging Camera is a 136° FOV (field of view) wide angle camera module that is great for machine vision applications, and designed specifically to be compatible with the NVIDIA Jetson Nano Developer Kit. This camera incorporates a Sony IMX219 8.08MP color sensor, a fixed focus (M8) lens, and utilizes CSI-2 MIPI 2-lane data output interface.

This is the same camera that we include in the SparkFun Jetbot v2.1 Kit.

Note: SparkFun has not established the compatibility of this camera with Raspberry Pi. We are currently working with the manufacturer, but due to firmware restrictions Leopard cameras do not work with any Raspberry Pi's at this time.

Leopard Imaging Camera - 136 Degree FOV Product Help and Resources

Core Skill: Programming

If a board needs code or communicates somehow, you're going to need to know how to program or interface with it. The programming skill is all about communication and code.

3 Programming

Skill Level: Competent - The toolchain for programming is a bit more complex and will examples may not be explicitly provided for you. You will be required to have a fundamental knowledge of programming and be required to provide your own code. You may need to modify existing libraries or code to work with your specific hardware. Sensor and hardware interfaces will be SPI or I2C.

Core Skill: Electrical Prototyping

If it requires power, you need to know how much, what all the pins do, and how to hook it up. You may need to reference datasheets, schematics, and know the ins and outs of electronics.

2 Electrical Prototyping

Skill Level: Rookie - You may be required to know a bit more about the component, such as orientation, or how to hook it up, in addition to power requirements. You will need to understand polarized components.
