I have a question regarding the camera device.

First of all, I am using a BeagleBone Black.
In the current situation, it seems difficult to use the cam via USB.
So, I want to drive the camera through pin.

Connecting the Mini module Camera Shield (w/ 5 MP OV5642 [B0068]*) camera via pins at bbb,
Is there a functional difference when using the Raspberry Pi’s dedicated camera connection?

Thank you very much.

Hello…does it use SPI or UART? Do you need GPIO?


P.S. I used a camera once with the BBB via SPI and another time with i2c. It really depends on the chip and what it wants to communicate.

Also…links to the module may help along with the datasheet(s).

Here’s a link about DS

Thank you really very much
