ASI225MC on Rock64/debian (ARMv8) - driver?

Post by gyszondy » Thu Apr 11, 2019 12:13 pm

Hi,

We have an ASI225MC (and an ASI385MC) camera, and we would like to take jpeg picures with 1-4 FPS on Rock64/debian (ARMv8) platform.

Our first attempt was to use the camera as a standard webcam. (...as we understood the hints on the website)
Unfortunately standard webcam driver does 't recognize ASI cam as a webcam. It's just a "new high-speed USB device". "New USB device found, idVendor=03c3, idProduct=385b" ... from the syslog

1. Is there a camera driver available for this ARMv8 platform? Baased on the info from the website I did not find any. :( From where can I download it? (We have a python program working fine with ordibnary webcams.)

2. If there's no camera driver available, then I suppose we should use the C++ SDK - however the demo rejected 1280x960 resolution, saying w*h sould be N*1024. Which was the case... but 640*480 resolution was accepted.

Could you suggest me either a driver or the right direction to follow with the SDK, please!

Thanks in advance!
György

Hi Gyorgy,
Can you tell me your purpose?
Our camera is not a webcamera at all, it must be used with our SDK. And our SDK supports the ARMV8, and we had tested it with rock64. For the demo, you can change the source code, the resuolution of 1280*960 is supported.
Thanks

Hi Gyorgy,
I think you can use our demo to make a test. We had tested it on the Rock64, the demo works fine. For your resolution, it should support, you can modify the source code to test it.
Thanks
