The easiest approach for connecting to a webcam would be to use a motherboard with USB Host capabilities. Of the Basix, Connex and Verdex boards, Verdex is the only one with USB Host. The Overo motherboard will support USB Host, but it's listed as "experimental" and I don't think its working quite yet.

I've currently set up my Verdex XL6P to use a webcam through the Console-VX, but I'm not sure what expansion boards you would use to get both USB Host and Wi-Fi at the same time.

Hope this helps, good luck.

Hi everyone,

I'm currently looking for a microprocessor that is capable of connecting to a webcam and a wireless chip, so that I can capture, process and then transmit the video images wirelessly. May I know if any product in Gumstix is good for that? Any recommendations/comments? Thanks a lot!
