LinkSprite JPEG Color Camera TTL Interface

LinkSprite JPEG Color Camera TTL Interface

The LinkSprite JPEG color camera allows you to capture and output JPEG images through UART, making it easy to integrate into an existing design.

Note: Cameras purchased before November 01, 2010 output RS232 serial data, so you will need a level converter if you plan on connecting it to an Arduino or other microcontroller. See the related items for an appropriate converter. Cameras purchased after this time are use a TTL interface.

Note: 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. Check the comments for more information.
