Have you read the Blackfin documentation yet? It should explain it all.

The Blackfin is a camera that does all the image processing for you. You use a microcontroller to 'ask it questions' about what it sees, and it will send your microcontroller the processed answer.

The blackfin is actually a microprocessor with a built in digital signal processor.

this setup by surveyor corp. uses the microprocessor hence the name blackfin camera

Yeah you typically hook it up via UART. Its probably best to have a microprocessor with multiple UART and something in the 16-20mhz range with some good amount of onboard flash memory.

Datasheets are your friend.


Read the datasheet of the blackfin camera, and read datasheets of any microprocessors, and see which one is cheapest and can handle the requirements of the blackfin camera.

is this the data sheet



# 500MHz Analog Devices Blackfin BF537 Processor (1000 integer MIPS)
# 32MB SDRAM, 4MB SPI Flash
# JTAG (tested with section5 ICEbear USB-JTAG)
# SPI Flash and UART boot mode select
# External I/O Header (32-pin - 16 x 2 x 0.1")

    * 3.3V Input - 145mA total draw at 500MHz, including camera
    * Board dimensions - 50 mm x 60 mm (2.0" x 2.6"), 36g (1.25 oz) including camera module
    * 2 UARTS - tested at up to 2.5Mbps with CTS/RTS flow control
    * 4 Timers (2 share pins with UART1)
    * SPI - 2 slave select, 1 master select
    * I2C
    * 16 GPIO
    * "S-32 expansion bus" header will support stacking of expansion boards
    * RoHS compliant

would an Axon work ???

but of course...

you need to learn to search the site and the forum...

There is even a discount on the blackfin camera available in some cases:

yes an axon would work
Check out the Roboduino, Arduino-compatible board!
