I'm new to PSoC and have very limited knowledge using any MCU and such. I have a USB Webcam and a PSoC 5LP (CY8C588LTI - LP097). I was wondering if it's possible to control the shutter of the webcam with this PSoC kit. I was hoping to take a picture every few seconds and store it in my computer. 

Can any one guide me how to do it. Or share some links where I can refer to. Couldn't find much info on Google and Youtube.

Thanks in advance

You will need an USB master to control the camera. A PSoC emulates only an USB slave device. So no chance to perform what you want to do with a PSoC.
