Camera interface

The current Neo1973 processor does not have a camera interface. A chip with the MIPI Camera Serial Interface (CSI-2) might be used as a future proof solution. The standard is available to companies who have joined the alliance.

A chip that complies to the open Standard Mobile Imaging Architecture (SMIA) Compact Camera Port (CCP2) serial interface may be (more) desirable. The Micron MT9D012 is a 2 Megapixel chip and one of many that complies to these standards.


Liquid Lens camera

  • A Liquid Lens camera for small, low power, electronically controlled autofocus.
    Also available as part of an SMIA compatible camera module!


Telescope

Tripod

A tripod socket would make a camera more usable.
