OpenMV IDE Slowing Down When Connecting RT1062 Camera


I have been using the Rt1062. The OpenMV IDE has been working fine. However, after a system update (Dell), whenever I connect the camera in the IDE, the IDE becomes slow, even without running any code.

  • I am using windows 11
  • When disconnecting the camera from the IDE, it returns to normal.
  • I looked up my problem in the forums but didn’t find anything.
  • I tried erasing the onboard data flash, but it didn’t fix the problem.
  • I made sure I have the latest development installed.
  • I removed the (empty) SD card, and it was still slow.
  • I restarted the PC as well. I did not change the USB port that I was using to connect the camera.

This problem has happened before but it fixed itself when I restarted the PC. However, it is different this time.

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Hi, you should look into the processor monitor and check if the IDE is maxing out your CPU.

If when the camera is connected to the IDE, but, not streaming video, and your system is slow then it may be an issue with your USB driver stack.

The IDE serial port driver code does not so busy loops, but, it is polling at 500Hz. This shouldn’t be more than 1-2% of modern CPUs.


Thanks! I will keep that in mind for future reference.

Cheers! I will mark this as solved for now
