Re: Optical mouse in Robot

You might buy an modern optical mouse, these chips have SPI interface which is far more easier.
In a few hours, I made a PIC-program and a PC program,
so I could display images with the mouse onto the monitor of the PC. take a look:

Which chip was the mouse using and how did you connect it to the PIC?

Well though my question was not exactly answered, I would like to post this 'FIND' so that any other person looking for similar info may benefit. http://www.tenx.com.tw/pdf/DS-TP66P05V10.pdf Has the exact pin connections as desired, though a little mod may be required to suit the needs. The PAN101 datasheet is on: http://www.pixart.com.tw/brief/PAN101B.pdf Anyway, on testing the optical mouse on the actual gamefield surface gave disastrous results since there are not enough features on the same for the Img Proc DSP to be able to work well. But I am surely intrigued by the images on the PIC site. Doesn't the optical mouse just give X-Y quadrature o/ps or X-Y displacements in byte format and keeps the images for itself?
