Hello, huge fan of the OpenMV M7, and have purchased 2 of them so far. When will the OpenMV H7 Kickstarter campaign be launched? I can't hardly wait!

Less than 2 weeks. The video is about ready! So, I just have to make some static web page updates over the weekend. Send out some emails. And launch it next week.

Hello! This may be a stupid question, but I wonder if the FLIR adapter will be compatible with x.5 versions of lepton?

All versions. We have a driver in software that supports everything (not really that hard)?

Hi, it's a parallel interface. So, no MiPi cameras. This is fine however since we're not exactly going to be pushing super high resolutions. That said, if you want to build a product with the numerous low power camera modules popping up for always on camera applications our system works well for that.

Note that you can buy a crosslink fpga and build a parallel to MiPi bus converter for less than $10.

The interface on the H7 is a 8 bit standard data bus along with i2c lines and a SPI bus. Additionally, we added extra reserved pins for MiPi over the same connector standard in the future.

Is this the camera module connector?
Do you have adapter connector to expose the pins?

We don't have a plan to make one but you an easily build one once we release the schematics.

I am planning to order one more camera when the backetkit is sent out.
To save on expenses, I would hold on buying LCD and plan to use ILI9341 instead.
Will you be supporting that display?

Yeah, I have one on my desk to add LCD support for. Just need to get to it.

ANy reason why OV9650 was not used in H7?
I think the resolution is higher.
Would it be better?
Can we still use OV9650 on H7?

We don't have external SDRAM. So, it's not like we can do anything with a high res anyway. It's not really our goal. The OV7725 works and has a good supply. So, why switch...

That said, the camera module is removable now and we have driver support for that camera so it will work if you make a breakout board for it.
