I am beginner and want to write a program for fpga which will take a 
image from a camera connected to fpga and then send that image to 
internet.Is it possible to do this fpga??I also wanted to connect a 
vibrator motor to fpga?
Please guide me from where to start.
Thanks

Hey Baddy,

Do you really need an FPGA? Maybe it's easier to use a microcontroller.
What's the dimension of your vibrator motor?

- Do you know how "the internet" works, i. e. are you familiar with the 
TCP/IP protocol stack and handling? - I would definitely propose a 
microcontroller for this protocol stack thing because it would be a real 
pain to try and "do it" in hardware. Of course this could also be a µC 
soft core within an FPGA, but since you are a beginner, this would not 
make things easier.
- What's the interface of your camera? Since it sounds like you "only" 
need still images, wouldn't a simple webcam with an e. g. USB connector 
a proper choice?
-> In this case, I'd strongly recommend a microcontroller or (maybe even 
more easy for you) an "embedded PC" or a small PC. In this case you 
could e. g. develop with a normal PC and then port it to a Raspberry Pi 
or something like that.

Yes it is. If you are new to FPGA and you don't have the money to buy 
ready-to-run IP cores, then it will take you, lets say at least 2 years 
of busy work.

> I also wanted to connect a vibrator motor to fpga?
And whats the problem with this?

Those two problems seems to me like:
I want to build a space ship.
First question: can I do that with a proper workbench?
Second question: how do i drill a hole in a piece of wood?

> I am beginner ...
> Please guide me from where to start.
What is you knowledge?
How much time do you have?
What do you want at all?
Is this a project for your own and "just for fun"?

> Thanks
You're welcome.

I am going to use Coin Vibrator motor.

Camera will be voice controlled.Yup I only need still images for this I 
will use simple VGA camera module.

I want to make the device portable.Yes, now I am thinking of Raspberry 
Pi or Gooseberry..Thanks for advice

Are you always this much arrogant??Ever thought about sharing your 
knowledge or you are saving it for future?And yes I dont have much 
money.Ohh may be you can send it to me as you know things you must be 
millionaire.

I laughed out loud when I read the reply by "lkmiller".  Baddy, you 
might feel insulted, but you have to understand that people ask 
questions in forums way too often that are vague and of little detail. 
Your question is in that category.

I believe Lothar's analogy is right on because first you asked how to do 
something that is so complicated one would need a book to answer it, 
plus you provided no detail or info on what you know and don't know. 
Then you asked about connecting a motor to an FPGA, which is trivial in 
comparison.  After reading your post, the first thought I had was "this 
guy is already in way over his head, where would I even start if I 
replied?"

Next time give all the details you have, and be very specific. 
Contributors to this forum and others are generally not willing to do 
your work for you.

No. I can assure you: that was not arrogant at all. It was just 
realistic!

I do so. Just try to search the internet for my name.

Are you always this much arrogant??


And up to now the answers to some questions are missing:
What is your knowledge?
How much time do you have?
What do you want at all?
Is this a project for your own and "just for fun"?


You see: its YOUR job. And I may be intended to HELP you (now a 
little bit less because of your rude behaviour), but I will not do all 
the work for you. NO one will unless you pay for it. Thats how world 
works.

Regarding arrogance I'm acting as a mirror...
And it may seem to someone as arrogance, but for me its just "the direct 
way of telling the truth". Or should I say "Of course, the problem is an 
easy one, you will cope up with it in a few days!" and then turn away 
and leave him/her alone?

@ Delta
Maybe you can help baddy_s with the information posted. I can't. And 
that I told baddy_s.

Thats the solution at all! Just take one of those voice-controlled FPGAs 
so you will only have to tell them what they are supposed to do.

Just get a smartphone. It has a camera, vibrator motor, voice control, 
internet connectivity and you can program it.
