OAK-1 Lite W¶
OAK-1 Lite W features a Wide FOV color sensor and takes the affordability idea and pushes it one step forward. By having the same AI and CV functionalities as OAK-1 W while being more affordable, it gives you the opportunity to create all sorts of projects.
OAK-1 Lite W is not a standard USB camera. It is a 4-trillion-operations-per-second AI powerhouse that performs your AI models on-board, so that your host is free to do whatever you need it to do.
Camera module specifications¶
DFOV / HFOV / VFOV
Fixed-Focus: 50cm - ∞
Effective Focal Length
1.12µm x 1.12µm
This OAK device is built on top of the RVC2. Main features:
4 TOPS of processing power (1.4 TOPS for AI - RVC2 NN Performance)
Run any AI model, even custom architectured/built ones - models need to be converted.
Encoding: H.264, H.265, MJPEG - 4K/30FPS, 1080P/60FPS
Object tracking: 2D tracking with ObjectTracker node
OAK-1 W vs OAK-1-Lite W¶
The only difference between these two models is the color camera sensor; OAK-1-Lite W uses IMX214 W while OAK-1 W uses a higher quality color camera - IMX378. Otherwise OAK-1-Lite W uses the same PCBA and enclosure as the OAK-1 W.
Most of the power is consumed by the RVC2, so the power consumption mostly depends on the workload of the VPU:
Base consumption + camera streaming: 2.5W - 3W
AI subsystem consumption: Up to 1W
Stereo depth pipeline subsystem: Up to 0.5W
Video Encoder subsystem: Up to 0.5W
So the total power consumption can be up to ~5W if you are using all the features at 100% at the same time. To reduce the power consumption, you can reduce FPS of the whole pipeline - that way, subsystems won’t be utilized at 100% and will consume less power.
The ambient operating temperature of RVC2 based devices is between -20°C and 50°C when fully utilizing the VPU.
Similarly to the Power consumption, max operating temperature depends on VPU utilization. The higher the VPU utilization, the more heat the VPU will generate. The RVC2 VPU can continuously operate at 105 °C, after which the depthai library will automatically shut down the device (to avoid chip damage).
