Ultra Tiny USB Camera with GC0307 Sensor
Product Images and Video
This unbelievably small USB camera is great for embedded projects that have USB host support for standard UVC cameras, and not a lot of space. Sure you could get a desktop USB camera at any tronix shop, but would it be so incredibly small?
This was probably originally designed for use inside monitors or products that need a simple video sensor with 640x480 output and 8mm x 25mm x 4.5mm PCB. Inside is a GC0307 image sensor SM3762 camera-to-USB adapter chip wired up to a 1mm pitch connector for power/ground/D+/D-. An adapter cable that converts this to a USB A port is included, but of course you can cut it for direct wiring.
No special drivers are needed, use your operating system's built in USB camera support for instant image/video data. Works with Mac, Windows, Linux, etc. Note this is not going to give you iPhone-quality output with HDR and low-light vividness, it's a basic camera that is inexpensive and compact, but should work for many vision recognition, and photo-taking situations.
