|W9966 Camera driver, written by Jakob Kemi (email@example.com)
|After a lot of work in softice & wdasm, reading .pdf-files and tiresome
|trial-and-error work I've finally got everything to work. I needed vision for a
|robotics project so I borrowed this camera from a friend and started hacking.
|Anyway I've converted my original code from the AVR 8bit RISC C/ASM code into
|a working Linux driver.
|To get it working simply configure your kernel to support
|parport, ieee1284, video4linux and w9966
|If w9966 is statically linked it will always perform aggressive probing for
|the camera. If built as a module you'll have more configuration options.
| modprobe w9966.o pardev=parport0(or whatever) parmode=0 (0=auto, 1=ecp, 2=epp)
|you can also type 'modinfo -p w9966.o' for option usage
|(or checkout w9966.c)
|The only thing to keep in mind is that the image format is in Y-U-Y-V format
|where every two pixels take 4 bytes. In SDL (www.libsdl.org) this format
|is called VIDEO_PALETTE_YUV422 (16 bpp).
|A minimal test application (with source) is available from:
|The slow framerate is due to missing DMA ECP read support in the
|parport drivers. I might add working EPP support later.
