That's about where my FPGA experience finishes. Someone else is going to need to chime in, but I can tell you it won't be a straightforward process. It is a whole project in itself. Then again, it depends what your image sensor is. If it is one of those UART/Serial JPEG cameras then it is quite sim...

You would most likley need some sort of FPGA for that, add in compression and it becomes a bit more complex... There are no single chip solutions that do what you want (apart from the kind of ASIC's in video cameras etc). I'm being harrased to look at incorporating this somehow into my current proj...

Mini-PVR (Low-Res vid capture to SD)

It would be awesome if there was some BoB that allowed low-res (320line or there abouts PAL) video capture to SD. Something that either captured to an on-BoB microSD slot or used SPI to talk to an external one. Even if it used a custom filesystem, or did raw, as long as you could read it back on a P...

I've tried with a 10k resistor tied between reset and V+ as a suggestion from the forums, but still no luck.

Hi all. I'm horribly stuck with this breakout and wonder if anyone can offer some insight. I have it hooked up to ports 50-53 and INT0 (D2) and am using the code supplied in the thread over at As you can see described in th...
