Using the TSL1401 with an Arduino/Teensy
We have a TSL1401 Linescan Camera and are trying to use it with a Teensy/Arduino. The problem is that our bootleg setup makes it very difficult to diagnose our problem. We have wired the A0 to pin 0, Vdd to 3.3V, GRND to GRND, CLK to pin 2, SI to pin 3, +5V to Vin.
We seem to be getting weird values when we try running code we found on the internet, and we are unable to tell whether our wiring, code, or camera are the problem. We are not seeing any visible change when we change what the camera sees.
Code we tried:
Here is an example of our output (we are only having it print out some of the center pixels)
Is there anything we can use to test the camera to make sure it is working properly?
