Can the camera connector be extended?

0 votes
I would like to utilise the JeVois device with the camera extended about 15cm away from the rest of the unit. Is there a camera with a longer connector, or is it possible to extend the one which comes with the device at all?

The camera sensor uses a 24-pin 0.5mm pitch FFC cable (flat flex cable). We have not found modules with a longer cable, but extensions seem to be available. Look for those specs on google. For example this one:

You would connect the sensor to that little PCB, then the provided longer cable to the PCB too, and the other end of the longer cable goes to the connector on the JeVois PCB.
