Hi,

I'd like to inquire about the question with regard to the connection of webcam over Xilinux demo kits on old ZYBO FPGA. The idea is that to connect an HDMI or USB webcam on ZYBO FPGA with Xilinux demo kits installed. Is it possible to have the extension on Xilinux demo kits ?

Thanks

Hello,

Xillinux is, in this respect, just another Linux distribution. As a lot of USB webcams are supported by Linux, I suggest just plugging in the one at hand, and see if it's detected. Xillinux' kernel is compiled to support a whole lot of them.

And if not, it may be possible to download sources for the drivers required, and compile them on the board itself. Once again, treat Xillinux as a desktop computer.

Regards,
Eli
