OpenQCE stands for "Open QuickCam Express", it intend to drive your Logitech Quickcam Express from OpenBSD userland (using ugen(4)). The Logitech Quickcam Express is a little USB webcam with a 360x296 CMOS sensor (Agilent/HP HSDC1000) and an undocumented STV0600 ASIC. OpenQCE is currently only compatible with one version of this product as I only own one Quickcam Express, I might add support for other webcams in the future. OpenQCE is a cheap and ugly piece of code, I welcome generous donations in good BSD-Licensed code, patches or money.
WARNING: This experiment/code is obsolete and no longer supported, unless you are a developer trying to understand the quickcam express, gtfo. I doubt this still compiles anyway.
I got most of my information from reverse-engineering and reading websites about similar drivers or similar webcams.
A very convenient tool to sniff usb device and learn how they speak with their drivers.
Here is the first attempt to understand this little device, you can get here a few pictures of the chipsets, some registers mapping. If you plan on contributing to OpenQCE, do *NOT* download/read any source code from this website as licenses conflicts.
Some theory about Bayer filters.
