IMX327S IR-Cut Heat
Currently testing the IMX327S with a reComputer Jetson Xavier. Everything works perfectly, including the I2C tool to control the IR-cut filter. However, I am noticing that that the IR-cut filter device seems to generate a good amount of heat. To the point you can't touch it for too long. I am using the recommended wiring as documented on the Wiki, where 5V is also provided to the module in addition to the CSI connection. Is this normal? Thx!
@newleaf Actually, this could be residual heat from when the sensor was streaming some video. I had video off for 30 minutes and its cooled down a bit. I was a little surprise how much the IR-cut filter heated up however. I will keep testing.

Based on my experience, this heat is not generated by IRCUT, but by the camera module itself.
Indeed, many customers have reported that this camera module is hotter than expected, but there is no need to worry, as it does not affect stability.
@veye_xumm Thank you. And agreed, it's heat transfer. Everything is stable and works great. Good to know it's normal.
