USB Webcams

From ArmadeusWiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Even if not optimized for data transfer performances, USB Webcams are (mostly) cheap and can be a good starting point for video acquisition/processing.

This page will summarize the validated models and link to their respective documentation.

Note Note: If you need performances, we recommend you to use camera modules connectible to either the CSI interface of the i.MX processors or the FPGA.

For the really intensive image processing applications, Armadeus Systems is developing and providing the SP_VISION APF27Dev/APF51Dev extension board.
