FX3 Image Sensor Project - Aptina SOC1040
A number of questions:-
AN75432 references the Aptina SOC1040 but I can find no reference to this camera device, I presume SOC is "System On Chip" so is there another part that can be used or does anyone have a data sheet?
Also is the Aptina Demo3 Adapter Board available to purchase from any one? (would save a lot of time)
It is my understanding that the specifications for UVC only allow for YUV data format with Bayer, RGB and grayscale fromats unsupported, so this limits the sensors that can be used, can anyone expand on this, for example is this true?
Our particular interest is to use a monochromatic sensor, something like the Aptina MT9P031I12STM (5MP) however this sensor is not YUV so we assume this will require the data to be manipulated by an FPGA (hard for color but maybe OK for B/W) or could the FX3 run this converstion?
Any comments much appreciated.
