UART vs. alternate solutions

  • When we redo the boards, we should switch the AVR-Gumstix connection from UART to SPI

Comments from dshope

  • the gumstix board has a camera interface inbuilt - we'd be using that and not going through the AVR (aka no middleman)
  • there are no definite plans regarding a camera, and that should not be focused on at all right now
