Anyone interested in the Wi-Fi Camera BoosterPack?

The CC3200 Launchpad has been sitting on my desk for quite some time. Today I decided to hook it up and see if it can come in handy in any of my projects. I can say one thing... this Launchpad is well designed.

 

Anyway, the camera boosterpack was announced way back and unfortunately it is a TI reference design. The camera itself is a MT9D111($18) module. The Camera BoosterPack has support for Flexi modules too, including the OV3660 camera sensor.

 

The schematic shows a bunch of caps and resistors and a couple of power management chips.

 

Would it be worthwhile getting a PCB assembled? I'm sure TI won't mind if we take their PCB package and replicate it for a group buy. If it is within 5x5 or so, I can have Elecrow do a 20 pcb set. I'm guessing $5 shipped in the US after taking into account 2 way shipping, PCB cost and packaging.

I'm in :D  - I was eagerly awaiting one a while back and was really bummed when they didn't end up making it.  

We might want to stick with parts for one specific camera for cost though - those smd connectors look they might be a pain - it might drop some of the other SMD parts if they're only needed for one model.

Correct, the SMD connectors are for cameras with Flexi cables. We can drop components that are not used. Also sticking with the camera that the code was tailored for, helps.

I'll place an order for 10. Will count you in.

I'd surely be interested in such a boosterpack, though shipping to europe may be too expensive for me to make it interesting...
