I want to connect the MT9M001 camera module directly to RPi. The camera (chip itself) has a 10 bit parallel interface. Is it possible to connect such cameras to RPi without additional chips?
I assume you want to connect the data bits and strobe to the GPIO and read in a 10 bit value at each strobe.
If the Pi controls the strobe you might be able to take a million or so 10-bit readings per second. I'm afraid there would be no time to process that data though. Assuming the data had to be processed in software I'd guess a maximum of a few thousand 10-bit readings per second.
If the camera controls the strobe I would estimate you have zero chance of using the device on the Pi.
