August 10, 2020 Tiera Oliver

e-con Systems announced their partnership with Toradex. Further, e-con Systems has launched a bouquet of MIPI CSI-2 camera module support for Toradex's iMX8 SoM series, Apalis. Among the camera modules would be e-con's flag ship 4K camera module, e-CAM137A_CUMI1335_MOD. By launching variety of camera modules with different image sensors and various features, e-con Systems enables Toradex Apalis i.MX8 customers to address multiple applications. 
e-con Systems' e-CAM137A_CUMI1335_MOD is based on 1/3.2 inch ON Semiconductor's AR1335 high resolution sensor with a pixel array of 4208H x 3120V. The camera module supports a M12 holder which allows the customer to interchange various lenses. 

Other than the 4K camera module, the initial launch includes e-CAM55_CUMI0521_MOD, 5MP MIPI CSI-2 camera module based on 1/2.5 inch ON Semiconductor's AR0521 sensor with active pixel array 2592 (H) x 1944 (V). The larger pixel size of AR0521 provides low light performance enabling quality imaging systems in varied lighting environments.

In addition, e-con Systems will be soon launching e-CAM130_MI1335_MOD, 4K Autofocus camera module and e-CAM56_CUMI0521_MOD, 5MP MIPI CSI-2 Monochrome module for Toradex's iMX8 SoMs. Also more cameras would be launched soon for Verdin family of SoMs.

e-con Systems has integrated the camera drivers with Toradex's Torizon, an open-source software platform with Linux OS. This would provide an out-of-the-box experience for Toradex's existing customers who have bought iMX8 Apalis SoMs. 

Customers can order the following evaluation kits for testing the various camera modules with the Toradex's Apalisi.MX8 SoMs from e-con's Online store.
