Electrical & Mechanical

Frontal view of MIPI Camera Sensor

Before connecting, make sure that the pinout of the computer board fits the pinout of the MIPI module, especially the power supply (3V3) and GND pins. In 2014 a number of boards for the Compute Module IO (CMIO) have been sold with reverse pinout which may damage the MIPI Module and the Compute Module when connected. If in doubt contact the manufacturer or the dealer of the computer board. Vision Components can not take resposibility for incorrect pin-outs, changes and modifications of third party manufacturers.

Always use the original Vision Components FPC cable for connecting the MIPI Modules. FPC cables are available with 15 pin or 22 pin header on one side. The MIPI module side always has 22 pins. The original FPC cables connect the signal traces on one side and have a GND shield on the other side. Flat cables with only the signal wires without shielding are not suitable for this purpose.

Note

Note SignPlease be aware that using the FPC cable with 15 pin on one side limits the number of MIPI data lanes to 2 (instead of 4 for the FPC cable with 22 pins on both sides). This may lead to lower frame rates than specified.

Make sure to connect the correct side of the cable with the MIPI Module. The correct side for the MIPI Module is marked "sensor side".

Due to the high transmission rate of about 1.5 Gbit/sec per lane the cable length is limited to 200mm. Using a repeater board the cable length can be doubled to 400mm.


Pin Cable Connector


Data signals are compliant to MIPI CSI 2. Not all of the 4 lanes are supported for all sensor modules, e.g.:

  • Raspberry Pi Compute Module IO V3.0: CAM0 connector supports 2 lanes only; CAM1 connector supports 4 lanes
  • Raspberry Pi Zero V1.3 and Raspberry Pi 3B+ support 2 lanes only

Warning

Warning SignAt the time of writing the schematics of the models 'Raspberry Pi CMIO V3.0' and the 'Raspberry Pi Zero V1.3' have the pin numbering of the MIPI sensor connector in a wrong, inverse order, so pin 1 would be pin 22, pin 2 would be pin 21, …

  • Always check cable numbering when connecting the sensor boards to hardware not from Vision Components!
  • Vision Components is not liable to any damages by connecting to incompatible hardware!
  • Always use original Vision Components FPC cable!
  • FPC cable can only be used in one direction!
