OV5642: change I2C address

  1. Where did you get the camera module(s)? Amazon

  2. Model number of the product(s)? OV5642

  3. What hardware/platform were you working on? Initially Pi…Later microcontroller/baremetal.

  4. Instructions you have followed? online

  5. Problems you were having?
    The product description states, “Arducam mini not only offers the capability to add a camera interface which doesn’t have in some low cost microcontrollers, but also provides the capability to add multiple cameras to a single microcontroller.” Yet I can find no way to change the I2C address. So placing two of these devices on the same bus runs into a conflict. Is there a jumper, resistor, something I can change to shift the address on a second camera board. (This is the reason I purchased this specific camera. I should have dug thru the real documentation first.)

  6. The dmesg log from your hardware? NA

  7. Troubleshooting attempts you’ve made? NA

  8. What help do you need? To change the I2C address on a second camera.


The i2c device address of the camera cannot be modified.
