[Deprecated] LZCAMADAPT Camera adapter

* NOTE THIS BOARD IS NOT CORRECT *

Do not use. I was rushing and made a dumb mistake. See LZCAMADAPT2 for the correct version. The Correct board will have the silkscreen printed "LZCAMADAPT2"

  • NOTE: This is untested, but i think this version of the adapter board would allow the old *original* (pre-alamak) camera to work with this board.

A simple camera adapter board has been prepared to jumper from the original 5 pin 0.100" header/socket to the smaller 2x4 0.50" header/socket. Only "Version 2" camera module needs this adapter since the ribbon cable on "Version 2" already has the correct 0.50" connector, it just needs to be removed from its own adapter board that converts to 5 pin.

  • The board and schematic are available in EAGLE CAD format.

PCB

The small adapter looks like this:

Schematic

Thee schematic is very basic. Just connects the pins as follows:

Image 1: The image above shows the socket (connector) installed on the camera pin header. Normally this would be soldered onto the PCB. This image was taken just as a check that it fit well.

Image 2: The image above shows a paper version of the CAMADAPT PCB and how the 5 pin connector would solder in place. The socket (connector) shown in Image 1 should solder on the opposite side of this PCB

Board Modification

If you really want to you can cut and jumper the traces to make it like CAMADAPT2. Below is a picture of something what this would look like when you are done.
