Hello ,

Somebody can share information about how to make a interface based on pic microcontroller to drive a hard disk.

I want record B/W video to hard disk.

Any information is appreciated.

Regards

Garfield

Of course, a PIC is nowhere near man enough to
record a full resolution, full frame rate uncompressed
B&W video signal to a hard drive.

Could probably get by using an external field/frame
store and only recording a few frames per second.

If full resolution and frame rate is required, would
need to look at some form of DMA controller in an
FPGA (The hard drives these days are plenty fast
enough, even for colour video)

hi,
this file is a IDE Hard-Disk interface for 8 bit Controllers from Elektor.
You can read inside and you can change the included GAL with a PIC or another MCU. :D

Take a look at http://www.mp3ar.com They have a mp3 player based on a HDD\CDROM with full project available, including source code. Their first project was with a PIC16 series but now they use a PIC18. Never the less i believe that the old project is yet available.

I'm guessing that PIC will be slow for such application.

Video capture

Has anyone actually managed to capture video with a pic and transfer to HDD?
