Fast FPS Firmware is here!

Posted by Kwabena Agyeman on

Hey folks!

We're finally done fixing all the issues uncovered by more users. OpenMV IDE 1.6.0 is now here along with firmware v2.4.1 which dramatically improves your OpenMV Cam's FPS (for both the M4 and M7 boards)! Here's short video demo below.


In other news, MacroFab has been paid for 2.5K new OpenMV Cam M7s and they've started production. Panels were purchased this week for all the new boards. Additionally, we're updating the build slightly to improve camera quality:

  1. We're going to be putting black stickers on the backs of each OpenMV Cam now to filter out light entering getting into the camera IC through the PCB.
  2. We'll be improving our Q.A. test to verify the USB and uSD connectors on each cam work after the camera is tested on our programming jig.
