SparkFun CMOS Camera Module

Post by jonathan »

Hello. I've got one of these: ... ts_id=8739

It outputs (RCA) video. I'm going to need an ADC to connect it to the XMOS chip, right? Not sure what I want to do with the data yet, but would like some advice on which to use.

Thanks for help!

I've got a couple of these: ... ts_id=8667

Some people have got them working with other MCUs.

Your camera will be quite difficult to interface, you will need a fast ADC to digitise the video signal, although you could capture single frames quite easily with a slow ADC. You will also need to extract the sync pulses.
