Since MIPI camera interface(CSI2) is not officially supported by TI on the OMAP35x/37x processors ,we had a little bit a struggle in getting the same working. We developed a DirectShow Camera driver on WinCE 6.0 to get the MIPI camera working in TI OMAP35x/37x EVM kit.

Check out this blog post for images of the same.

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2011 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

The concert hall at the Syndey Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 9,400 times in 2011. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 3 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.

One of the waving feature of "Windows 8" is the 8 sec boot time.As they said it really boots in 8 sec in my PC.That is a cool one!!!!!!!

Since we are working in Windows Embedded OSes it raises the question.

"What is the least time for WinCE boot with some application?"

Check out the following blog post in which Windows Embedded CE 6.0 boots in 3 sec and starts streaming the camera frames live in the LCD.

Building a Simple Camera DirectShow Filter graph Application in WEC7

Filed under: Article,WinCE 6.0,WinCE 7 — Prabu Kumar @ 4:34 pm
Tags: , , , ,

Many of you might have noted that your WinCE 6.0 DirectShow camera application was not working with Windows Embedded Compact 7(WEC7). The reason is "In the newly launched Windows Embedded Compact 7 OS, the Video Mixing Renderer (VMR) filter replaces the DirectShow Video renderer filter as a default video renderer".

In this post I will try to give basic idea to start writing the Simple DirectShow Camera application on WEC7 and also "How to" start with the newly added component in WEC7 (i.e., Video Mixing Renderer (VMR)).

One more important thing is Windows Embedded CE 6.0 DirectShow camera Application will not work on Windows Embedded Compact (WEC7) without the changes which I had done in this post.So check out the post here.

Working with display controller using DDraw APIs in WinCE / Windows Mobile

I had seen few questions in the wince newsgroups about drawing text or drawing any bitmap over the camera video stream output render.I had thought of sharing my experience for this requirement.So I wrote this article with sample demo application and I hope this will help the community who are searching for a solution.

http://www.e-consystems.com/WindowsCE-Ddraw-api.asp

And also take a look at the application source of the sample which is described in the article.I had also created a project for this sample application in Codeplex server.If you have any comments or issues with this application please post it in this blog comments or in codeplex project discussion page,I will try to fix it.
