Hi I am trying to interface between
1. a camera with a cameralink output
2. a microcontroller of ARM7. (this microcontroller is the brain of the system (general purpose usage, not for image processing).

because of the rare nature of the system, i dont see any cameralink to spi framegrabber or such. The solution i think of is:

1. FPGA ? FPGA input of cameralink, image processing (basic) and output to spi? can i use one FPGA chip to congifure its I/O port as cameralink signal and also the spi? pls recommend any TI/Xilinx chips for this purpose, if you are familiar :)

2. use a simple PIC/microcontroller and take in the parallel data from cameralink , process and output to spi?

3. Even if I use FPGA, are there available libraries or tools to auto configure the ports as cameralink /spi protocol?

any input will help! or if you better ideas do share with me:) thanks !!

p.s. I dont need streaming (only image not video) so fps are not really of concern.
