    USB WEBCAM Reference Design and or Whitepaper

           My customer was wondering if Cypress has a USBwebcam reference design solutions? (including software driver on a board with PSoC) In terms of sensor resolution, 1Mp should work. Our focus is to get light and small ahead of image quality.

                               Since PSoC has Full Speed USB it is going to be tough to interface a 1MP Webcam. Assuming 1FPS@8bit(Monochrome), we would require 1M Bytes/Sec, which is tough with PSoC so you'll have to use one of our high-speed peripherals.


          There are quite a few camera based designs based on FX2LP, unfortunately we don't have a reference design or whitepaper which I can provide. I'll check and let you know if I'm able to find a FX2LP based 3rd party design. The designs that I've seen so far mostly use CyUSB.sys and implement a custom protocol on the device and host side.
