Arducam has released the highly influential and industry benchmark Arducam 64MP Hawkeye autofocus embedded camera for Raspberry Pi platform in 2022. Since the product was released, it has been widely praised. However, the camera, which is completely based on Arducam's independent research and development, cannot be natively supported by the Raspberry Pi platform. Users need to download the corresponding driver installation package to drive and use the camera.
Now, Arducam is coming with the latest Arducam 64MP OwlSight OV64A40 autofocus camera module. The biggest feature of the new 64MP OV64A40 camera is that it can be fully supported by the mainstream software libcamera officially recommended by Raspberry Pi. You don't need to install any more drivers to plug in your camera and complete your project.
In addition, we have created a complete ecosystem for it, with accessories, products, and solutions available, which will greatly save you the energy and time spent in developing and implementing projects. We also support a deeper freedom in customization. You can share any of your ideas with us, and we will use our expertise and services to help you realize any project.
|+ Native Supported by libcamera: Raspberry Pi mainstream software libcamera directly drives the camera, eliminating the need to install the camera driver and simplifying user access.|
|+ Ultra-high resolution: ultra-clear picture quality, maximum resolution 9248x 6944 (64MP).|
|+ Excellent photosensitive performance: larger optic format (1/1.32). The largest pixel size among sensors of the same level.|
|+ Higher frame rate: Higher frame rate can still be obtained at high resolution. (Sensor Max Frame Rate: 9248x6944@15fps).|
|+ Dual mode Focus: CDAF Autofocus & software control manual focus.|
|+ Rich peripheral accessories: one-stop supporting parts and the overall industry ecosystem. From modules -> products -> solutions.|
