    is that true if we used the optical sensor in the optical mouse with the wright lens that we can make a cheap camera which can be used in small robots and .. etc

    i do a search on it but i think it would be helpful if i asked you here about that and if there are a cheap way to interface a cheap camera either :D to capture photos in gray scale it's ok i would be grateful to hear it from you

    thnx

    for now i started with that

    Agilent ADNS-2610
    Optical Mouse Sensor
    Data Sheet

    if you wanna take a look here you are Download

    I used the ADNS2083 in my project here >> http://www.morse-code.com/id55.htm

    Worked well as a gray scale imaging device for robotics and even crude scanning capabilities....

    i know about morse code but i didn't understand what meant by morse code encoder, do you mean that you use here a morse code by light and make the process of encoding on it using a controller or what ?

    what i get about the operation of the optical mouse is that it captures a photo of the current position and compare it with another came from moving the mouse then make a processing on it and extract info about the x-y movement which sent and translated on the pc into cruser move

    what i wanna to do is to take the photo captured by the sensor and store it even on the pc or a memory card and in the future may display it on LCD and it is the same for capturing a photo or video

    :D NO, my website is called Morse-Code, it has nothing to do with Morsecode (telegraph although I am distantly related to Samuel) or how the sensor is used.....


    and yes you can use it to capture images but it has an I2C interface so you will need a uc to connect to it.....

    aha you mean that the circuit included on the link is some kind of biasing circuit for the sensor and the type of the communication with the sensor is the I2C

    i thought it was RS-232 communication and i it would be a good chance to learn it but it is clear that i will need to learn the I2C too :D

    any way never mind and if you know a good tutorial to learn the I2C or the RS-232 protocols it would be grateful to hear from you and thnx a lot for fast replay

    and by the way what is "My .02" stand for :D
