Choosing a microcontrollers
« on: June 05, 2011, 02:06:38 PM »
Hi,

I have a infrared camera with 16 bits/sample and 320 x 240 pixels. How do I pick a micro-controller that can handle this data? Assuming i do not need to do any image processing. I just want the microcontroller to handle the data and transfer it to the CAN controller. I need a microcontroller because the project requires me to select one.

The infrared camera can have Ethernet output and Digital I/O Connector, ScrewTerminal 6-pole: Digital Out: 2 outputs, opto-isolated, 1030V supply, 100 mA.
How do i know if the data can be output to a microcontroller?

Thanks for the help.

16x320x240 = 1228800 bits per frame but how often do you need the frames.
If only once then almost any processor can bit shuffle the data to a CAN controller.

Is this for reading the camera's image?

Is this your homework assignment?
