Power Consumption

The specifications below refer to the total current draw on each of the power supplies while the RPi Camera FMC is connected to a development board and has 4x cameras connected and streaming video at 1080p resolution.

12 VDC100%0mA
3.3 VDC100%209mA
VADJ 1.2 VDC100%7mA
  • Tests performed at ambient temperature of 25 degrees C
  • Tests performed using the ZCU106 development board
  • Tests performed using 4x Raspberry Pi camera v2
  • Standalone application was used to enable all cameras and stream video to DisplayPort monitor

Note that the RPi Camera FMC example design will also produce an increase in power consumption of the FPGA/MPSoC on the development board due to the use of FPGA and hardware resources.

Thermal Information

We have not performed comprehensive thermal testing on the RPi Camera FMC, however we recommend that it be operated under ambient temperatures between -20 and 60 degrees C. This advice is based on the recommended ambient operating temperatures of the Raspberry Pi camera v2. The critical devices on the mezzanine card have operating ranges that exceed those of the camera and are listed in the table below.

Component Ambient Operating Temperatures

OnSemi, MIPI Switch, FSA646AUCX-4085C
ST, 2K EEPROM, M24C02-FDW6TP-4085C
TI, Level translator, SN74AVC4T245RSVR-4085C
TI, I2C Level translator, TCA9416DTMR-40125C
ESD Protection-55125C

Components that are not listed in the table above (such as resistors, capacitors) are selected to have minimum operating temperature that is lower than -20 degrees C, and maximum operating temperature that is greater than 60 degrees C.

Reset Timing

The RPi Camera FMC has no special reset requirements, however be aware that Raspberry Pi cameras and compatible cameras typically do have reset requirements. Please refer to the datasheets of the cameras being used for the appropriate reset timing requirements.

I2C (EEPROM) Timing

The serial EEPROM (part number ST, 2K EEPROM, M24C02-FDW6TP ) has a maximum operating clock frequency of 400 kHz.
