Sorry, but we don't have it. That was the deal with this camera - we got a bunch of them, but no info on how to make it work. David Carne figured it out, all other data has been generated since then.

Hi, I'm working on the interface between an Atmega16 and this camera. I would like some help with the same.

The sensor I'm using is a sparkfun CMOS camera ( Also, I will not be able to get another camera as this one has been already bought and I don't have enough budget.

I am running the camera with an ~14Mhz crystal connected to the clock generator and All I am interested in doing is taking a 176x144 pixel image into the microcontroller and outputting it to matlab using serial.

The problem: after supplying the required signalling, I am unable to get a output clock on the PCLK pin (which seems to stay inherently high) and HSYNC and VSYNC are always low.

hope you can help!
