    Hello everyone

    I am trying to build a system using FPGA, I program my algorithm using VHDL using ISE 14.1, and verify it using testbench.

    Now I want to implement it using Spartan 3A.

    my question is that how I can read image by the kit?
    What I need to accomplish this job?

    thank you

    It depends on which sensor are you intended to use.
    Most of them allow parallel reading, or even serial access.

    Thank for your kind reply.
    Can you explain more, what do you mean by type of sensor?
    Do you mean the type of camera or something like or what?
    I just want to enter the image to the FPGA kit to apply my algorithm on it

    You could load into memory, that way you don't need camera.

    Very good

    you mean load the image on the external DRR memory of the FPGA kit, is it right?

    How one can do that?

    I have no idea. I was looking at some fpga lab assignments that came up in google search. That was one of the things they did, memory controller in one lab, then image modification in the next lab, but the image was put into memory, they did not do anything with camera.
