Hello, I'm also developing a project with the DE1 board and the 5 Mega Pixel Terasic Camera. I'm developing edge detection. You can download the code for this camera and see how it works.

I'm also new with Verilog. I hope it helps... I'm still trying to figure out a lot of things... 

 

There is a block diagram to help you understand the code in the user manual of the camera. I'm still trying to understand it.

Here is the code for the TRDB_D5M camera in Verilog so you can use it to connect it to the DE1 board. 

 

The file with the name "DE1_D5M.sof" is the one you should download to the board in order to connect the board to the camera. 

 

Hope it helps.

Are you really developing a project like that?.. Could you upload the code to the forum's web site? 

 

Thanks

Hello, 

Instead of using the Terasic camera, can we use the Web Cam? simply interface it with the USB?

may be this can be an idea. you should make an elecktronic desgin.  

if you know the pins of webcam you can combine them with the de2. 

I used a camera not a webcam but I tried this way. 

may be this can be helpful for you.
