  • Hi, I'm using TC384 TI camera through RS232 interface. I am not able to find various RS232 command(with details like header, crc, stop etc.) for controlling the camera. Any help in this direction would be grateful.

  • Can you please supply a video of the images that this produces? or pictures (preferably both :) )
