Interfacing a CMOS Sensor to the TMS320DM642 Using Raw Capture Mode (Rev. A)


This document contains information on how to interface the TMS320DM642 to a CMOS Digital Image Sensor in raw capture mode. A complete example is shown, including hardware and software interfaces. The software consists of a set of routines that are compatible with the Video Port Mini-Driver and External Device Control interface. The discussed interface is proven and has been tested from 320x240 at 120 frames per second to 1920x1080 at 19 frames per second. This document is accompanied by example software designed to operate with the TMS320DM642 EVM and is available electronically from the TI website.
