Topic: OV7670 camera without FIFO - Transmit picture/video via Serial (Read 84 times) previous topic - next topic


I have a question about OV7670 camera. It comes without FIFO and I don't have any microSD/SD card to storage it, so I would like to transmit all the data via Serial UART/SPI/I2C or via USB to a Raspberry Pi (I don't care how to comunicate Arduino and Raspberry Pi)

This are my questions:

  • 1-. Is it possible without FIFO? I mean, is posible to transmit the image directly throw serial?
  • 2-. If it is possible, what is the best or the most recommended way to do it? (UART/SPI/...)

I know that there are a lot of threads about this camera, but all of them store the image into a SD card or/and with a shield (ArduCam) and I don't have any of them, that's why I'm opening a new one.

Thanks in advance!




Its not the kind of camera you think, its VGA output with a proprietry serial protocol for
configuring its control registers AFAICT.
[ I won't respond to messages, use the forum please ]

So, there is no way to use it if you don't have a compatible shield?
