    Interfacing with an external JPEG module camera

    julienA

      I haven't been able to find an explanation that I could understand on how to make the Edison communicate with a Camera Module (that has Jpeg compression and can communicate via Serial Interface).

       

      Example of a camera:

      http://www.ebay.com/itm/1-pcs-OV2640-2Mp-HD-CMOS-Camera-Module-w-Adapter-Board-JPEG-OUT-/281067291314?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item4170ea82b2

       

      Do I only need an expansion shield (like this one: http://www.dfrobot.com/index.php?route=product/product&product_id=1009&search=IO+Expansion&description=true ) and link the Serials? I have seen some posts on this forum on using python to interract with it.

       

      Any help or clue would be much appreciated

       

      Thank you
