1.Which seller did you purchase the product(s) from?
2.The Model number of the product(s) you have purchased?
?? SKU: B0068 - Arducam Mini Module Camera Shield 5MP Plus OV5642 Camera Module for Arduino UNO Mega2560 Board & Raspberry Pi Pico
3.Which Platform are you using the product(s) on?
Arduino Nano 33 BLE, or Arduino UNO, or B-L072Z-LRWAN1 (STM32L072CZ)
4.Which instruction are you following?
online documentation https://github.com/ArduCAM/Arduino
5.Has your product ever worked properly?
6.What problems are you experiencing?
With capture to SD-card, the initialization logic for the SPI (expecting 0x55) doesn’t succeed, and just repeatedly issues the message “SPI interface Error” on the serial monitor.
Removing the SD-Card and using ArduCAM_Mini_5MP_OV5642_Plus_Functions the mesages are “ACK CMD SPI interface Error! END”.
The unit I was shipped does not match any of the model pictures in the documentation, e.g. the listing on the Arducam product page, or the camera models page. See image attached. (note, there are no components between the camera housing and the Winbond chip)
Was I shipped an imitation/knock-off? Should I complain to UCTRONICS?
If not, what settings should be used in memorysaver.h for this unit?
I’ve assumed #define OV5642_MINI_5MP_PLUS with no shield, but documentation around model choice is fairly minimal, given this model is not mentioned on the web site.
If the choice of memorysaver.h setting is correct, what are my next steps to determine what the problem is?
7.What attempts at troubleshooting have you already made?
Built and tried the same circuit with three different Arduinos, parts, and breadboard wiring. Tried various chip select options. Tried without SD-Card using functions test.
8.How would you like us to help you?
Confirm this is a valid product. Identify memorysaver.h #define required. Suggest debugging next steps.
