Connecting the Linksprite jpeg IR camera using base shield on Intel Edison arduino board

Jump to solution

Hi All,

I am trying to connect the Linksprite jpeg IR camera to the Intel Edison Arduino board using the Grove Base shield.

Is this possible? I have been unable to read the output from the RX pin of the UART port of the base shield.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

Hi,

How are you connecting the camera to the base shield? The UART output of the base shield has to be connected to a resistor that goes to the UART pins of the camera. The camera also has to be properly powered. You need to power the camera using 5VDC.

I found a guide to connect the Linksprite camera to the Edison that you might find useful https://github.com/humberto-garza/LinkspriteEdisonIRCamera humberto-garza/LinkspriteEdisonIRCamera: Li... - GitHub .

Hi Intel_Alvarado,

That was the original link that I looked at. As far as I knew did the base shield not output 5V DC? Whenever I covered the light sensor, the infrared LED's on the side would glow up. I was not able to get my hands on two 10k resistors. Can it be done without the resistors?

Side question: Is the gpio programming in Linux on the Edison similar to the gpio programming on Galileo (running Linux off an SD)? I am used to working with that.

Sorry for the late reply.

Thanks,

Janak

I've never tried to use the Base shield without resistors. I've seen other users that have worked with the base shield without the resistors so try without the resistors and let us know your results.

And yes, the GPIO programming is very similar in the Edison, take a look at http://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/support/boards-and-kits/000005583.html Intel® Edison Kit for Arduino* Hardware Guide for Boards and Kits

Hi jannatar,

Do you have updates on this?

Did you try with the link Sergio posted?
