This is a replacement sensor for your JeVois camera.

This item is the monochrome version.

It uses an OnSemi (Aptina) AR0135 sensor chip instead of the original ov9650 sensor chip of JeVois. The AR0135 has almost the same resolution (max 1280x960) but a Global Shutter and bigger photosensitive pixels. It is a bigger sensor chip than the original and hence requires a modified JeVois plastic case. Use this replacement sensor if you need to operate in low-light and high-motion conditions.

This sensor board also includes a 9-DOF TDK-InvenSense ICM-20948 Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) with 3-axis accelerometer, 3-axis gyroscope, and 3-axis magnetometer. We mounted the IMU right to the back of the image sensor, with aligned axes (to the tolerances of PCB mounting). The IMU is hence tightly coupled with the image sensor, and will move exactly like the image sensor moves. The X and Y axes are aligned and centered, and the IMU is about 2mm behind the imager on the Z axis. This IMU features an on-board Digital Motion Processor (DMP), which can be programmed to do things like computing quaternions directly in the IMU chip, or detecting different types of activities, counting steps, detecting falls, etc.

This kit includes the following:

  • Sensor board with AR0135 Global Shutter 1.2MP imager + ICM-20948 IMU, 12mm lens mount (S Mount), 24-pin 0.5mm-pitch flat flex cable.
  • Five S-Mount lenses:
    • 1.8mm (170deg ultra wide field of view),
    • 2.5mm (125deg wide field of view),
    • 3.6mm (88deg field of view; installed by default),
    • 6mm (53deg field of view),
    • and 12mm (25deg field of view).
  • High-quality 3D-printed modified case (printed with professional laser sintering printers, not filament-based printers).
  • 25mm x 10mm cooling fan. 

This is an experimental kit for now. Installing it requires some soldering (two wires for the fan). Software support is not 100% complete yet, but all major issues have been worked out and now we are just adding more features. We are offering this as a preview for our JeVois fans that just cannot wait.

To activate this sensor, you need to write a file called 'sensor' with contents 'ar0135' on the boot partition of your microSD card. More information at



Note: opening the case of your JeVois camera voids your warranty. So please proceed with caution.
