10398 board is a 18MPix sensor front end (SFE) designed to work with 10393 camera system board. It has the same physical dimensions and the same optical format (1/2.3") as a 5MPix SFE 10338D and 14 MPix 10398(15mm x 28mm).
The 18MPix (4912×3684, 1.25μm × 1.25 μm) BSI image sensor used is On Semiconductor (former Aptina) AR1820HS. This sensor (and 103981 SFE) uses 4-lane HiSPi/MIPI serial interface running at 14 fps at full resolution (12bpp mode). 8-lane HiSPI mode is not supported. Other combinations of resolution/frame rate are possible.
Up to 4 103981 SFE can be directly connected to 10393 system board and run simultaneously at full speed (880M pixels/s combined).
103981 SFE uses the same 30-pin flex cable connector for control (I²C, extra GPIO), differential data output (4-lane HiSPi+clock) and 3.3V power (additional 2.8V analog, 1.8V digital, and 1.2V digital are generated on board). Short connections can use general purpose flex jumpers (30 conductors, 0.5mm pitch) or Elphel flex cables manufactured for the parallel interface sensors, longer connections require controlled-impedance flex cables with 100Ω differential lines.
