Can the FX2 communicate with a webcam?
I am working on a project involving an Avnet Virtex-5 board with a Cypress FX2 USB controller. I'm trying to find out if it's possible to rewrite the firmware of the FX2 in order to communicate with a webcam (so another "device") and request a videostream in isochronous transfer mode.
I'm not looking for complete host functionality, just a simple way to make the FX2 ask for the videostream from the webcam and deliver it to my FPGA for processing. Is this feasible? If so, could you point me towards any documentation that might help me?
Besides this, since the board is normally behaving as a "device", and the connector is type B, do you know if the usb connector will deliver power to the webcam?
