Streaming Video in the 8051 (FX2/FX2LP)

Question: What is the FX2's processor doing in the middle of continuous streaming video?



When using AUTOIN mode, the 8051 does not get involved in the transfer of data from the imaging device through the GPIF interface to the endpoint buffers and finally out the USB port as IN packets. This allows 8051 "hands-off" operation. The 8051 is available to service the other interfaces and perform other MCU tasks.
