Galaxy S Camera, NEC MC-10170

I have one of these cameras (NEC MC-10170 ARM) from a defunct Samsung Galaxy S phone. It appears to have it's own ARM controller with a 18x2 connector. Any one have knowledge or pinouts of these puppies?

Thanks,

Suyin USB Camera, is on.

I now have a Suyin Corp netbook camera that is identified by lsusb: "Bus 001 Device 005: ID 064e:d250 Suyin Corp." The camera is connected to a USB hub but the camera power is wired to a +3.3V GPIO pin. I am NOT using the +5 from the USB to the camera, except locally to light a small white LED as an...

R.pi.0.W interfaces

In the Preferences /Interfaces, every time all buttons are 'enabled'. Some I want, others not so. Is there a file I can edit to turn off most of those 'interfaces'?

Thanks,

PS Got a $3.99 keyboard from GoodWill and it works.

Re: How to become a "sudoers"

OK, thanks to all.

I added all of the 'pi' groups to mine.

Minicom is working, so the dumb-term is OK using /dev/ttyACM0. Yes, I can talk to my LED-Cube now.
I am not sure as to where the minicom df1 file got stuffed.

Thanks again, :D

Apparently I am not in the sudoers group, which I need to fix.

I2C for a AD7150 capacitive touch sensor

I used to work for XpanD where they used the AD7150 capacitive touch sensor in their 3D glasses to turn them on. During that employment I worked up a PIC-10F200 part to bit-bang that chip into a sleep mode (I2C). I have several portions of broken PCB's with that chip and fields to make it work. I pl...

In win7 I can talk to it with minicom like a dumb-terminal. In 'RPI0W Pixel' cutecom does not allow USB connectio...

CSI port

1. Can the CSI port be used for anything else? (pi 0 W)
2. What is the unused footprint on the bottom of the "pi 0 W" for?

I will be using my pi 0 W for an interface to my LED cubes, should be fun.

Thanks,
