1 About

AXIOM Beta Developer Kits can be equipped with a CMV12000 ZIF (zero insertion force) socket sensor board. This is useful for developers as it allows for frequent, easy sensor removal at the turn of a lever (zero force). The CMV12000 sensor itself is a high resolution global shutter CMOS image sensor.

Please note that the correct position for the CMV12000 to be inserted into the ZIF socket is the left most and top most position when looking straight at the ZIF socket (lever at the top). Any other position will not work and could potentially damage image sensor and camera hardware.

4 Power

The CMV12000 has a 4W continuous peak power consumption. There might be short higher peaks when training LVDS channels to initialize the sensor communication. For still images you can operate the sensor with largely reduced IO (number of LVDS lanes) which in turn should also reduce power consumption.

Note: The AXIOM Beta Compact hosts the Beta CMV12K THT Sensor Board. THT (Through-hole tech) is suited to applications where the sensor-front-end won't be removed regularly.
