I’m developing a camera for astronomy use. It needs to record video at 12bits/pixel monochrome 30FPS or slower, with a lossless compression format such as lagarith.
Anyway, I’ve chosen the Sony IMX433 or IMX426 0.5 MP sensor. Now, how to assemble a system for developing the code? I haven’t chosen a processor yet. The requirements are that it can input .5MP of data at 30FPS from the sensor, encode it, and record to an SD card, and the power usage should be reasonable, since the device must be battery operated. The development board should also be reasonably priced. The $2000+ Sony development kit is beyond my budget!
Can the DragonBoard 410c work directly with the IMX433 which has SLVS or SLVS-EC output?
If not, can you suggest a SLVS/SLVS-EC to MIPI CSI-2 converter, or suggest a different processor and development board?
I’m prepared to make my own camera board if necessary, but I’d prefer to buy one for initial code development if the price is less than $2-300. The sensor could be any in the IMX family that have SLVS or SLVS-EC output and are compatible with my chosen processor/development board. Any suggestions?
