Hi again @JanKok , check this out:
Toshiba TC358746AXBG / TC358748XBG, I think it can handle 8 bits and the voltage is 1.8v maybe it could open a few doors for you.
I´m a creative, self-made person. A natural abstract and conceptual thinker. but I'm also a hands on man. I'm on the #Edge using #AI #IoT at the service of #Yaguaretés (a kind of Jaguar under risk of extinction).
I am an experienced C Coder (Over 25 years of experience), I have a corporate past (IBM, Oracle, NEC, Big Telcos, ...), I Led several local and international projects. Mission critical projects were fun but finding a mission is great!
I'm here because I'm marveled about the Sony Spresense.
Hello @vivekbhadra Sorry for getting in the middle, I am working with Cameras and AI too (for inferencing and to store a few selected ones). Your post caught my attention. Sending the images over WiFi is a good option and it will give you some freedom, BLE to another device for cleaning purposes could be good too, you have several cores, one of them could manage the cleaning process behind the scenes (Just guessing, I don't know what you are doing). Now, if you don't need the images all the time, you could replace the old ones by the new ones.
Cheers and good luck with your project.
Let me know if you advance in your quest, I am also checking out some Framos / Basler Ag solutions (a different use). I didn't find yet standard connectors for MIPI or others to 8 bit parallel. Hirose is the company to look for the connectors (as far as I checked, they don't have converters, only the ends)
Have a great day. I will be watching this post!
Thanks for the link and advice @TE-KarlKomierowski . I just need to do a quick and dirty demo without burning the Spresense in the process. I won't use those batteries on real deployments because they can easily leak toxic fluids.
Hi there, good to see the new doc regarding low power consumption on the Spresense Site, it was quite clear and detailed, I liked it a lot, keep it that way.
My question has to do with safety (Spresense Safety!), because while I get some LiPo batteries I am about to use these batteries (see the link), is it safe to use Ion batteries ? (I know their performance is worse than LiPo)
Each one of these is a 3.7v 2200mAh I think one should be enough for what I want to do, but in any case, I could add another one in parallel.
They look Scary, Do I have your Ok to proceed ?
Hi @TE-KarlKomierowski Thx, I don't need a superb accuracy, I use it to know where the camera is looking to in order to tell other devices that a "subject of interest" be it a Jaguar or a Human is going in that direction once the subject runs out of the visual scope of one the camera (a multi camera tracking scenario)
I integrated one already (I don't wan't to keep it, for power consumption and simplicity reasons) but I wanted to know if I have to design the case including that part or not. I will keep it for a while then.
Have a great day. You guys Rock!
Hi @TE-KarlKomierowski , I was talking about unused pins (I wasn't explicit about the unused word sorry, avoiding floating pins), setting unused pines as OUTPUT or INPUT helped a lot on other hardware I use. So, OUTPUT-HIGH, thx.
Thanks also for the suggestion, that thing looks really cool and useful.
Keep it up.
----- The former question made me search for potential SDK calls that could raise a Kernel panic conditions, I'm too new to the Spresense and the doc is really huge and as far as I saw, it is not explicit about which ones will raise this condition (I read as much as I could, maybe I missed something). Is it possible to have a mark on the calls that cannot be used inside an ISR? Or at least to have a list of them ? Why ? Many people (I'm in this group) draw sequences before the first line of code, so... you could choose the wrong strategy to implement something.
Regards, I hope it helps.
