I have a problem: I've got five tiny CMOS image sensors (2mm x 2mm), each in a small space (about 10mm x 15mm). They take a clock signal in, and output an analog signal, requiring an 8MSPS ADC each. Somehow I need to get the image data into a PC. This is difficult because of the tight space constraints.
Ideally, I'd like to locally sample the data with a DSP, and video-encode it, at which point, it will be relatively easy to get into the PC via an EtherCAT bus which is close by.
The problem is, how on earth can I get 8MSPS into a tiny DSP in a tiny space? I know there are some pretty small DSPs, but: Are there any tiny DSPs with 8MSPS ADCs? Are there any tiny 8MSPS ADCs?
I have looked hard, but I cannot find any. Sad
