We are a research laboratory of the French national mapping agency and
we are in the process to design a digital still image camera for our own
The sensor will be a big one (>20 Megapixels), we have no interest in video capture, and we need Sata II and GigaEthernet.
We don't need to process the picture during capture, we only want to
store the raw pixels in RAM as fast as possible (DMA). Something like
the VIP or even the UPP interface of the AM18xx would be sufficient. But as we also need a Gigabit EMAC, we can't use the AM18xx.
We're considering using the AM387x as the ISS/ISSCAM seems to be the right module for our need. We don't need complex processing so the Cortex M3 processors are not needed.
Will it be possible to have the technical documentation of the ISS module (register file, DMA) so we can write our own Linux driver for the A8 ? Or will soon be a Linux API published for big still image capture ?
Otherwise, do anyone know a better suited SoC ?
The ISS doc is available and needs NDA. Can you contact your local FAE to get it?
Thanks, I will try...
