OAK-1 Lite W

Buy it on Luxonis shop


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.

RVC2 inside

This OAK device is built on top of the RVC2. Main features:

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.

Power consumption

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.

Operating temperature

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).
