Computer Auxiliary Camera Hardware Extension (CACHE) Board
A Computer Engineering Major's Senior Project
Commercial off the shelf CMOS cameras for CubeSats are expensive and don't easily integrate with each mission. This project will give the basics need to integrate the Aptina MT9M034 with a Microsemi Igloo 2 FPGA. This will allow the user to be able to lower the cost of an integrated camera specific to any mission needs. This allows for more flexibility or cameras in space. Using the FPGA also allows for further expansion to achieve different kinds of mission objectives.
