IMX462 UC-755 revA pinout

Dear Arducam Forum,

I have the IMX462 Pivariety camera (2 pcbs) https://www.uctronics.com/arducam-for-raspberry-pi-ultra-low-light-camera-1080p-hd-wide-angle-pivariety-camera-module-based-on-1-2-7inch-2mp-starvis-sensor-imx462-compatible-with-raspberry-pi-isp-and-gstreamer-plugin.html

I try to connect just the PCB with the image sensor ( UC-755 rev A) to raspberry pi zero.

A direct connection using 22pin 0.5mm cable ( doesn’t matter if typ A or B) is not working . the raspberry pi zero is reset when camera is connected.

Does anyone here has a table with pins function from the UC-755 revA PCB ?

what is the difference between rev A and rev C?

Thank you very much

Andrei

PS raspberry pi zero works great with standard ov2640 camera

Hi
I want to know if you did not receive *1 x 150mm 22pin 0.5mm to 22pin 0.5mm pitch FPC cable in the package.

Hi Dion,

No straigth 22pin 0.5mm cable came with the camera.

It was ordered Aug 2021, see also the different PCB rev.

I ordered separate 22pin 0.5mm type B (inverted)

In fact I replaced the initial cable from yesterday, and with the second cable I do not get a pi reset, but camera isn’t detected.

libcmera ERROR: *** no cameras available ***

when I call v4l2-ctl I get:

Cannot open device /dev/video0, exiting.

dmsg | greb imx462 … returns nothing

Can someone confirm me that the new revision of IMX462 is working with raspberry pi zero ?

What steps have been used to correctly install the driver ?

Thank you

Hi @MrSpace
Sorry for the late reply. We have been at the Drong Boat Festival for the past three days and just returned to work today.

Type B(inverted) is supposed to be correct.

How did you configure your Raspberry Pi? Can you post the output of the commands below?

cat /boot/config.txt
cat /boot/firmware/config.txt

config.txt:

I have no firmware folder in /boot/ , so no configure.txt there

I use bullseye 6.1.21+

I followed instructions from here: https://docs.arducam.com/Raspberry-Pi-Camera/Pivariety-Camera/Quick-Start-Guide/

on: ./install_pivariety_pkgs.sh -p kernel_driver

I en up with: ./install_pivariety_pkgs.sh: line 544: [: too many arguments

I can only conclude that IMX462 is not compatible with Rasperry pi zero.

It would be fair for your customers to update the compatibility matrix

Hi @MrSpace
I have no idea why I could not reply on the forum yesterday.

I don’t think so. This camera module is truly compatible with Raspberry Pi Zero. Are you comfortable getting remote support? If the answer is positive, please send a private message to me.
