OAK-1 Modular (BK1096)



The BK1096 baseboard offers a quick and simple way to add USB3 Type-C device power and connectivity, and a single 12MP RGB camera module to the DepthAI SoM.

This is the open-source equivalent of BW1093 (OAK-1, megaAI) which uses the BW1099 SoM (System on Module). The BW1093 itself cannot be open-sourced because it contains proprietary chip-down vendor information and therefore cannot be shared publicly.

Key features

  • Support 12MP RGB camera module

  • Interface for Luxonis BW1099 SoM

  • USB 3.1 Gen1 Type-C data and power

  • USB device power LED indicators

Getting started

The BK1096_R0M0E0 is designed to be powered from the USB Type-C connector. With the BW0249 camera and the DepthAI BW2099 SoM running inference, power consumption is typically about 3W (0.6A @ 5V).

The reset button resets the Luxonis DepthAI BW1099 SoM only.

The OUT1 and OUT2 LEDs indicate USB Type-C current mode. See datasheet for TUSB321RWBR Port Control device for more details.
