Raspberry Pi Camera Module Multiplexer by Ivmech Mechatronics

IVPORT which is the first Raspberry Pi (also Raspberry Pi A,A+,B+ and Raspberry Pi 2 fully compatible) Camera Module multiplexer is designed to make possible connecting more than one camera module to single CSI camera port on Raspberry Pi. Multiplexing can be controlled by 3 pins for 4 camera modules, 5 pins for 8 camera modules and 9 pins for maximum up to 16 camera modules with using GPIO.

IVPort has already been shipped to 55 countries and 30 universities with over 300 users.

IVPort can be used for stereo vision with stereo camera.

Updated Notes

Youtube video of stereo recording with 2 camera modules

IVPort Stereo Recording

The closest approach to simultaneous capturing at 640x480 resolution with 7 fps each camera connected to Ivport Camera Multiplexer (4 camera boards were connected.) by utilizing Raspberry Pi's video-capture capabilities with a JPEG encoder. See more details here.

alt ivport Revision 3 Boards are available with better compatibility and image quality. Revision 3 board has differential pair signals' better routing therefore image quality improvement. Revision 1 had some unintended design failures and manufacturing mistakes therefore enhancements and fixes were added to Revision 2 board. Please feel free to contact us if there is any issue on Revision 1 ivport boards.

IVPORT DUAL is available at HERE.

IVPORT DUAL is Lite version of IVPORT for only 2 Camera Modules alt ivport
