The MAXREFDES1041 is an automotive camera module design using the MAX96707. The reference design contains the AR0143 1.3MP image sensor, which outputs RAW, 8-bit parallel image data to the MAX96707 serializer. The MAX96707 serializes the image data and outputs the valid pixel data together with the HSYNC, VSYNC, and control signal through one coax cable.
This board is not available for purchase.
This document describes the hardware shown above. It provides a detailed, systematic technical guide to design an automotive camera application using the MAX96707. This reference design includes two boards: a sensor board and a power board. The sensor board includes the MAX96707 serializer and the ON Semiconductor® AR0143 image sensor. The power board includes a power over coax (PoC) filter circuit, DC/DC power regulator circuits, and a coax cable connector. The system has been built and tested, details of which follow later in this document.
