    Hi all,

    Is there any low cost color CMOS/CCD sensor support CIF(352*288) and
    YUV output?
    My friend recommend Omnivision's OV6620. Anyone used it please give
    some suggestions.

    Any suggestions will be appreciated!

    Best regards,

    Hi Davy,

    Actually i am integrating that exact module now, but it has not been
    very fun as its the first imager i have ever played with. Saying that,
    it is pretty straight forward once you understand it :).

    I am using a SX28 processor (at 75mhz) to pull of some small groups of
    pixel data for some simple color detection, I found it much more
    versatile than simple filtered photodiodes as its easily pointable (b/w
    composite output) and auto-white balanced keeping the readings very
    stable in an indoor environment.

    It can output a few formats including YUV and RGB raw data, 8 or 16
    bit, although i only needed the top 5 bits of each reading (in RGB-16
    mode), so my interface requires only 10 data bits.

    I would recommend the c3088 module, it uses the ov6620 chip with an
    integrated lense holder and lense, convenient, goes for about 35$ - 50$
    a piece (low qty).

    Hello Alex,

    Thank you for your help ;-)

    I am searching CMOS sensor currently, and find only Omnivision provide
    all series of products. Is it right?

    Any suggestions will be appreciated!
