    [title should really be pin in lol]

    I was looking at the range of processors from atmel


    http://www.atmel.com/dyn/products/devices.asp?category_id=163&family_id=607&subfamily_id=2138


    And i was thinking it would be nice if there was any reasonable processors not too fast not too slow which had really good battery life better than ARM's... so i found a 32bit processor from atmel.

    now... if you look there's no support for cam/video but i was thinking would it not be possible to simply feed the output signal from a small cmos/webcam and then via the firmware simply read in the raw data on any of it's io pins?

    thinking about it, it should be possible to do that with the arduino kit in fact using a really basic processor no?

    Hi cjdelphi,

    The AVR32 7000 range have an Image Sensor Interface (ISI) and a Pixel Co-Processor

    Here under the (huge) datasheet
    http://www.atmel.com/dyn/resources/prod_documents/doc32003.pdf
    and the driver Application Note:
    http://www.atmel.com/dyn/resources/prod_documents/doc32084.pdf

    Now it depend of what the application is, yes you can connect a camera module on the serial port of an arduino, or any other small 8 bit based board, but performances are limited.
    For higher performances, real time analysis, recognition algorithm... you must more horse power and the AVR32 look's fine for such tasks
