I'm looking forward to build a PCB that would contain a camera module, such as OV5640, and would have an USB interface, i.e. the computer should be able to tell the pcb via the usb interface to snap a picture and send it back.

Yet I am puzzled about what chip should I use to control the OV5640 module and how to convert it's data ( raw rgb, mipi? ) to usb?

I mean should there be some special chip for that or just a regular microcontroller?

Thanks! )

1 Answer 1

Any microcontroller that can speak USB and MIPI at the same time should work.

maybe you could suggest such MCs or their family, like ARM or something. –  JoeR Jan 14 '14 at 10:50
