OpenMV H7 Camera Module: ease of use, freedom of action

The OpenMV H7 facial recognition camera includes a 400 MHz microcontroller and is compatible with various removable image sensor modules, including the FLIR Lepton sensors (thermal imaging sensors) and the MT9V034 global shutter module (up to 240 FPS in QQVGA mode).

You can program the OpenMV H7 in Python scripts, using the MicroPython OS. It also has an OpenMV IDE that you can download to Linux or Windows. With this IDE, you can not only download and execute your high-level Python scripts but also display the images viewed by the camera and change the viewing settings.

Compatible with both Arduino and Raspberry Pi, the OpenMV H7 Camera Module has numerous inputs/outputs allowing it to control your applications itself (ADC/DAC, PWM, I2C port, serial and SPI, etc.).

An updated OpenMV M7

The OpenMV H7 Camera Module offers significant improvements over its predecessor, the OpenMV M7 camera:

  • Its microcontroller is twice as efficient while guaranteeing an energy consumption of about 80 mA less
  • The hardware JPEG encoder system offers higher quality image compression in JPEG format
  • It features a new JST connector for connecting a LiPo battery, a holder for FLIR Lepton 1, 2 and 3 modules, and interchangeable camera modules
  • It also has a high efficiency switching regulator with a 1A output
