The LinkSprite JPEG color / infrared camera allows you to capture and output JPEG images through UART, making it easy to integrate into an existing design.
These only work reliably with a 5V power supply, even though the manual states they can work at 3.3V. If you want to use it at 3.3v, you will need a lower baud rate.
There are two versions of the camera: The RS-232C interface model and the TTL interface model.
Please do NOT connect RS-232C interface model directly. You can connect TTL interface model only.
|Support capture JPEG from serial port|
|Default baud rate of serial port is 38400|
|5V power supply|
|Current consumption: 80-100mA|
This camera can also be used for taking infrared pictures. Please see the post here on how to do this. http://developer.mbed.org/users/pm21gt/notebook/linksprite-jpeg-color-camera-ttl-infrared/
