we're two students looking for a low cost developer board for our diploma work. we intend to plug a camera to the pci board via 1394 and process the images throug the fpga and get the processed images from fpga via pci. The camera we will use, uses DCAM /IICD Now we have several problems:
-we don't have a high budget, so it should be a low cost solution.
-we have not jet found a board that fits our need, does anybody know something cheep that could fit our needs?
-there would be several possibility to solve the connectivity problems:
- best would be to find a board that fits our need, means have at least pci, fpga and 1394 on it? any suggestions ont htat?
- if the above point can't be reached we could probably solder our 1394 interface ourself on a board. What would then be best for our purpose? We could probably use a TSB12LV32 chip from ti if we don't find a board with firewire. does anybody know this? would it then be possible to implement the dcam in the fpga?
Thanks to everbody
