Interfacing Lepton thermal camera with Galileo

Jump to solution

Hi,

I ma trying to interface a Lepton thermal camera with a Galileo module. Because of the low SPI clock frequency i am not able to extract the data continuously from the Lepton. I went a through a discussion in Intel community and they have provided a method to increase the SPI clock to 8.33 Mhz, 12.5Mhz and 25 Mhz. However i want the SPI clock to be around 20 Mhz to get the data reliably from the Lepton module.

when i went through the SPI.cpp in the aurdino IDE for Galileo, there is a definition for default frequency

# define SPI_CLK_DEFAULT_HZ 4000000

If i change this to

# define SPI_CLK_DEFAULT_HZ 20000000

and use SPI_CLOCK_DIV4 will Galileo be able to generate 20 Mhz clock ?

Thanks,

Subash

Hi subashnus

I've improved the SPI speed by modifying SPI_CLOCK_DIV2. Take a look at this /message/245902# 245902 message, these are the steps I followed, please try it. I hope it helps you. Additionally we are moving your post to the appropriate forum.
