  • Wii Remote IR Camera Hack with Arduino Interface

    I know this is an old post but I'm sure this is an easy question many could answer for me. The entire circuit described is for the clocking and i2c functionality and interfacing of the cam. Instead of making this circuit I found an adafruit board I believe will do the trick. Could someone help me out and verify this board does the same as the circuit and could be wired up with the camera. https://www.adafruit.com/products/2045 -Never hunt around for another crystal again, with the Si5351A clock generator breakout from Adafruit! This chip has a precision 25MHz crystal reference and internal PLL and dividers so it can generate just about any frequency, from <8KHz up to 150+ MHz.The Si5351A clock generator is an I2C controller clock generator.

This chip has a precision 25MHz crystal reference and internal PLL and dividers so it can generate just about any frequency, from <8KHz up to 150+ MHz.The Si5351A clock generator is an I2C controller clock generator. It uses the onboard precision clock to drive multiple PLL's and clock dividers using I2C instructions. By setting up the PLL and dividers you can create precise and arbitrary frequencies. There are three independent outputs, and each one can have a different frequency. Outputs are 3Vpp, either through a breadboard-friendly header or, for RF work, an optional SMA connector.We put this handy little chip onto it's own breakout board PCB, with a 3.3V LDO regulator so it can be powered from 3-5VDC. We also put level shifting circuitry on the I2C lines so you can use this chip safely with 3V or 5V logic.
