    Hello all,
    We know that RPi is nice piece of device to lay your hands on and I enjoy working on it. Now in my journey I have come to state that has rendered me to a question mark. I am using OV7725 (coz I have heard that its very good for image processing) to interface to the RPi and its been 3 days and I am not able to figure out how to interface that with the RPi. I am totally confused. :confused:

    Does anyone has any good pointers to help me out.

    Thank you all very much guys.

    You won't be able to do it with the GPU because the drivers are closed-source.

    The guys here have an FPGA add-on board in the works with some demos that interface to that sensor:

    I have continued my search on what to do with OV7725 and some people suggest that we reverse engineer the process and edit some open-source drivers that are available for OV7725 so that they can drive the GPIOs. How do you suggest we do that?

    I cannot use that as my project demands that specific camera module, OV7725 :(
