camera and memory component homework

B.1 (1 pt.) Memory Component:

Choose an off-the-shelf memory component that can be used as internal memory for the camera. List the memory components that you have researched and provide arguments for your memory choice.

B.2 (1 pt.) Memory Component Features: Read the datasheet of the selected memory component and briefly summarize its features.

B.3 (1 pt.) Port Interface: Define the port interface of the memory with the camera controller. Briefly describe the purpose of each port.

B.4 (1 pt.) Timing Interface:

Analyze and define the timing interface required between the memory and the rest of the system.

B.5 (2 pts) Port and Timing Interfaces:

Extend your design (developed in Part A) to implement the port and timing interfaces determined in Questions B.3 and B.4. For the controller, you can stop at the state diagram.

B.6 (1 pt.) Detailed Schematic:

Extend the detailed schematic of your partial design (developed in Part A) to include the memory. Identify any other components that are required. Show these components as well in the schematic.

B.7 (1.5 pts) PC Interface

Choose a suitable interface (serial/parallel/wireless) between the camera and PC such as USB, Bluetooth, etc. Suggest an off-the-shelf solution to implement this interface. You can “drop in” an existing design provided by the interface vendor. You need not extend the camera controller for this interface. However, you should include the interface cost in your final cost estimation.

B.8 (1.5 pt.) Estimations

Estimate: (a) the maximum number of images we can store in the memory; (b) the time required to store/retrieve one image; and (c) the approximate dollar cost to prototype the camera (excluding costs for PCB design and manufacturing, component soldering, and testing).
