    Description

    TECHNICAL FIELD



    [0001] The present disclosure relates to the field of image capturing and, in particular, to an image capturing module for aerial photography.

    BACKGROUND



    [0002] Many image capturing modules, for example, cameras, surveillance cameras, and the like, have a trend of becoming more compact and miniaturized. A conventional image capturing module usually includes a lens module for obtaining an optical image and a circuit board coupled to the lens module. The circuit board includes a plurality of functional modules for implementing different functions, such as a photoelectric converting module, an image processing module, an image transmitting module, a power supply module, a control module, and the like. The functional modules usually generate heat during operation. Since a volume of the image capturing module is limited, the functional modules need to be integrated within a small and closed space of the image capturing module. Therefore, the heat generated by the functional modules is difficult to be dissipated effectively and timely. If the heat is accumulated to a certain extent, the performance of the functional modules will be impacted, and the overall performance of the image capturing module will be impacted. A damage to the image capturing module can also occur in severe cases.

    [0003] US 2014/0055667 A1 describes an image pickup apparatus. The image pickup apparatus has a heat sink-cum-duct disposed between a pair of cover members that constitute left and right exteriors of an apparatus main unit and that are fixed to the heat sink-cum-duct. The heat sink-cum-duct has an opening formed to correspond to an air inlet port of an air cooling fan and has a plurality of fins, and sucks air through the opening from the outside. The sucked air is guided to the air inlet port of the cooling fan through a ventilation path defined by the plurality of fins.

    [0004] JP 2007 172076 A describes a plurality of heat radiating components that are mounted on a mother board, and a heat sink that is mounted on at least one heating component. The heat sink is provided with a fan arranged on the upstream side of the position where it is brought into contact with the heating component; an air flow channel arranged on the downstream side of the position where it is brought into contact with the heating component; and one or more through-holes formed on a face plate configuring the air flow channel. Air intake is carried out by the fan and also from the through-hole so that it is possible to perform the heat radiation of the periphery of the through-hole.

    [0005] EP 2 107 797 A1 describes a video camera, air outlet holes and air inlet holes are disposed in a panel-facing surface of a camera body. A liquid crystal panel unit is disposed movably between a first position in which a first face faces the panel-facing surface of the camera body and a second position in which a second face faces the panel-facing surface. When the liquid crystal panel unit is in the first position, the first face is so formed as to cover the air outlet holes and the air inlet holes. The second surface of the liquid crystal panel unit is formed so that the air outlet holes and the air inlet holes are open to the exterior when the liquid crystal panel unit is in the second position.

    [0064] Referring to FIGs. 3, 5, and 6, during assembly, the camera unit 20 is assembled into the receiving portion 320 of the support frame 32 and fixed on the support frame 32. The rigid boards 311 are disposed on different sides of the support frame 32, respectively. Specifically, the fourth rigid board 311d is disposed on a side of the support frame 32 opposite to the optical lens 21 of the camera unit 20.

    [0065] After the camera unit 20 and the circuit board unit 31 are disposed on the support frame 32, the image sensing module 22 of the camera unit 20 can be electrically coupled to the circuit board unit 31 using a patch cord (not shown).

An extending direction of each one of the first heat dissipation fins 412 is parallel to the optical axis of the camera unit 20. In some embodiments, a thermal conduction filler 60 is filled between surfaces of the first base 411 and the functional module 3111 to increase a contact stability and a thermal conduction efficiency between the first base 411 and the functional module 3111. The thermal conduction filler 60 can include a thermal conduction gel. The second heat sink 42 is disposed on the fourth rigid board 311d. Specifically, the second base 421 is connected to the functional module 3111 of the fourth rigid board 311d. Each one of the second heat dissipation fins 422 is parallel to the first heat dissipation fins 412. An extending direction of each one of the second heat dissipation fins 422 is perpendicular to the optical axis of the camera unit 20. A thermal conduction filler 70 is filled between surfaces of the second base 421 and the functional module 3111.

    [0067] After the camera unit 20 is assembled with the circuit board device 30, the support frame 32 is disposed within the receiving space 101 of the casing 10. The optical lens 21 is oriented towards the first hole 102. The first heat sink 41 is located at a side of the casing 10 that has the first ventilating window 104. The fourth connecting portions 321 are aligned with respective third connecting portions 122. In some embodiments, each one of the fourth connecting portions 321 and a corresponding connecting portion 122 are connected by a fastener 50, to fix the support frame 32 within the casing 10. The first housing body 11 and the second housing body 12 are snapped together, where the first connecting portions 111 are aligned with respective second connecting portions 121. Thereafter, the first connecting portions 111 and the second connecting portions 121 are connected together using bolts (not shown) inserted in the openings 1211, such that the first housing body 11 and the second housing body 12 are fixedly connected with each other. In addition, the first housing body 11 and the second housing body can, after being snapped together, be further fixed and sealed using glue (not shown) or the like.

    [0068] The heat dissipation fan 43 is disposed on the back enclosure 14. The fan body 431 is located between the back enclosure 14 and the fixing member 432. The connecting holes 4311 of the fan body 431, the second through holes 4323 of the fixing member 432, and the second connecting posts 144 of the back enclosure 14 are respectively aligned. The first through holes 4322 of the fixing member 432 and the first connecting posts 143 of the back enclosure 14 are respectively aligned. The fixing member 432 is connected to the first connecting posts 143 of the back enclosure 14 through fasteners 80 inserted in the first through holes 4322. Likewise, the fixing member 432 and the fan body 431 are connected to the second connecting posts 144 of the back enclosure 14 through fasteners (not shown) inserted sequentially in the second through holes 4323 and corresponding connecting holes 4311.

    [0069] The front enclosure 13 closes the first hole 102. The third snap portion 131 and the first snap portion 15 are snapped together. The back enclosure 14 closes the second hole 103. The fourth snap portion 141 and the second snap portion 16 are snapped together.

    [0070] Referring to FIG. 3 and FIG. 6, when the image capturing module 100 operates, the functional modules 3111 on the circuit board unit 31 may generate heat. The first heat sink 41 dissipates the heat generated by the functional module 3111 on the second rigid board 311b. The second heat sink 42 dissipates the heat generated by the functional module 3111 on the fourth rigid board 311d. The heat dissipation fan 43 is turned on to draw an air flow into the receiving space 101 of the casing 10 through the first ventilating window 104. The arc-shaped profile of the second opening portion 1042 of the first ventilating window 104 can facilitate the entry of the air flow into the casing 10. Moreover, when the image capturing module 10 is carried by an aerial vehicle (not shown) and moves, even if the heat dissipation fan 43 is not provided, the second opening portion 1042 can still cause the air flow to enter the receiving space 101 and flow to the second ventilating window 142 along the first heat sink 41. Thus, the heat dissipation air flow can be accelerated, and a heat dissipation effect can be improved. The heat dissipation fan 43 causes a portion of the air flow to flow within a space between the first heat sink 41 and the first housing body 11 and towards the second heat sink 42. When passing through the first heat dissipation fins 412, this portion of air flow can take away the heat absorbed by the first heat sink 41. Another portion of the air flow moves within a space between the third rigid board 311c and the second housing body 12 and towards the second heat sink 42. When passing through the third rigid board 311c, this portion of air flow can take away the heat generated by the corresponding functional module 3111. The heat dissipation fan 43 causes the two portions of air flow to converge at the second heat sink 42 and to take away the heat absorbed by the second heat sink 42. The heat dissipation fan 43 exhausts the air converged at the second heat sink 42 out of the casing 10 of the image capturing module 100 through the second ventilating window 142. In addition, a portion of the heat within the casing 10 can rise to the top of the casing 10 through hot air. Therefore, the first ventilating window 104 provided on the top of the casing 10 can dissipate the heat to the environment as quickly as possible.

    [0071] The image capturing module 100 utilizes the heat dissipation device 40 to dissipate the heat from the circuit board device 30. As such, heat accumulation within the image capturing module 100 can be prevented effectively, ensuring the performance of the functional modules 3111 and the overall performance of the image capturing module 100.

    [0072] It is to be understood that the foregoing description is intended to illustrate and not to limit the scope of the invention, which is defined by the scope of the appended claimns. Other embodiments are within the scope of the following claims.
