I'm not sure you can upload this kind of stuff here. For what I understand in the doc of the SX2, the SX2 only manage the USB thing for the processor. And the eprom can be linked to the SX2, so I imagine that the firmware is in fact the config of the SX2, not the firmware of the camera itself... Am I right ?

I'll take a look at your capture as soon as I get some time. I think that the set of commands that the host can send to the camera is very simple... We don't have that many parameters when we request a capture and I don't see other commands I could issue to the camera. It's really a simple stuff. The most complicated step is probably to understand what are the parameters and how they are sent to the camera (the coding, the order, etc)

I just opened up my Orion Stashoot DeppSapce II (SSDSI II) and I found a CY7C68001 chip in it, that's a Cypress SX2. Datsheet is easely found, in which we can find commands and all the necessary stuff. I'll try to decode capture with this help, if possible...

I know this topic is quite old, but I'm looking for the same thing, since it's the only thing preventing me to switch my setup to Ini / Linux / Raspberry PI....

Has anyone news about this ? Or about spec or where I could find stuff to be able to write my own drivers (beeing a developper) ?

Thx in advance for any help / reaction !

I know this subject is already quite old, but I've got the same question (since quite long)... and was not able to find anything on the web about a possible indi driver or anything usable under Linux for this stuff. This is the last thing keeping me from moving my setup to Indi / Linux using a RasPI, so it's quite important to me !

Another clue could be to be able to find code or spec to be able to write the driver myself (beeing a developper)... but again, nothing found on the web :-(
