Dear Forumites,

I have some experience with developing sw for embedded devices running 
Linux kernels, but no hw knowledge to speak of.
I am now looking for some hints for a specific project I have in mind:

I would like to run an IR-sensitive webcam, able to stream good quality 
video (i.e. at least VGA - not only output format, but real optical 
resolution) including audio over LAN or WLAN; at the same time, the 
audio data should be accessible for simple processing inside the box.

Most of the ARM boards I have found are far too full-featured for this. 
I would like to be able to build this for around 40€ or even less.

Do you think this is possible? Can anyone suggest a starting point, or 
even a ready solution?

Thank you sincerely,

von Juergen G. (jup)

Sounds interesting if it is a hobbyists project or if the out of the box 
IP cam's for around 40€ doesn't fit your requirements.

max. 40€ sounds to me like DIY, rather than buy some PCB ready.

Do you have some experience developing hardware and software for bare 
metal systems?
