The PAC7301/PAC7302 can be controlled through registers. The registers are grouped to pages of 256 registers. The registers can be written by sending an USB control message to the device. The ''value'' parameter of usb_control_msg() is always zero; the ''index'' parameter specifies the offset within a page; the ''data'' and ''length'' parameters specify the register content to be written.

These test patterns can be generated when the gspca_pac7302 driver is built with CONFIG_VIDEO_ADV_DEBUG=y. First start streaming e.g. with cheese then execute "v4l2-dbg --set-register=0x72 0x01" for value 0x01.

PixArt PAC7301/PAC7302 is a System on a Chip (SoC) with multimedia sensor capabilities. The chip is supported by the gspca_pac7302 kernel module.

Overview/Features

  • USB 1.1 interface
  • EEPROM interface
  • CMOS VGA sensor (640x480) for video and still image capturing
  • Microphone input (only on PixArt PAC7302)
  • Snapshot button input
  • User feedback LED output

Components Used

The webcams based on the PixArt PAC7301/PAC7302 chip usually consists only of the chip and some external resistors, capacitors, button and a microphone.

Other Images

Identification

The USB Vendor ID and Product ID can be programmed. The Product ID range of 0x2620..0x262F is mentioned on the schematics in the PixArt PAC7301/PAC7302 datasheet.

The gspca_pac7302 driver supports the following devices:

USB Vendor ID USB Device ID Device Name Note
0x06f8 0x3009 Hercules Classic Link
0x093a 0x2620 Apollo AC-905 The manual, page 11 of this device describes a software called AMCAP to set up different camera parameters in Windows.
0x093a 0x2621
0x093a 0x2622 Genius Eye 312 FL_VFLIP
0x093a 0x2624 FL_VFLIP
0x093a 0x2626 Labtec Webcam 2200
0x093a 0x2628 Genius iLook 300
0x093a 0x2629 Genious iSlim 300 (?)

maybe a typo? maybe related to Genius Slim series?

FL_VFLIP
0x093a 0x262a Webcam 300k
0x093a 0x262c Philips SPC 230 NC In the User's Manual, page 12 there is a detailed picture settings panel which can adjust the different controls.

The webcam driver may also support the following devices with only a little modification. The webcam drivers for Windows installs the pac7302.sys file. It is possible to download the driver and install it under Linux using wine. If this driver file is installed then we know that the webcam is based on the PixArt PAC7301/PAC7302. Then it is necesary to check the pac7302.inf file to find out the USB Vendor ID and USB Device ID for a specific webcam. The following table summarizes the devices identified with this method.

USB Vendor ID USB Device ID Device Name Note
0x093a 0x2625 Genius iSlim 310 Identified from the driver installed with wine-1.1.37
0x093a 0x2627 Genius FaceCam 300 Identified from the driver installed with wine-1.0.1. See the installed windows/inf/facecam300.inf .


The Labtec Webcam 2200 is an device which contains the PixArt PAC7302 chip. The identification of this device is as follows:

Making it Work

To use this device the following components are necessary:

Firmware

No firmware is necessary to use this device.

Drivers

The gspca_pac7302 driver was separated from the gspca_pac7311 with the commit 1408b8472910e894b290205b4baed5b14b8f45af. If you have a kernel version 2.6.32 or before then use gspca_pac7311 instead of gspca_pac7302.

The support for snapshot button is available since 28 Jan 2010 in one of the repositories. The patch was merged as commit aed6f1b5fe4e95cf8a9fc149e25041aa8cc7c78a to the mailine and it is included in Linux kernel starting with the stable release 2.6.37, released on 4 Jan 2011.

Sample Kernel Output

This is the kernel output when the Labtec Webcam 2200 is plugged in. You may recognise the pac7302 driver and the snd-usb-audio driver attaching themselves to the device.

Programming reference

Note: this chapter is based on the Linux gspca_pac7302 driver and on trial-and error. Use information here on your risk.

The PAC7301/PAC7302 can be controlled through registers. The registers are grouped to pages of 256 registers. The registers can be written by sending an USB control message to the device. The value parameter of usb_control_msg() is always zero; the index parameter specifies the offset within a page; the data and length parameters specify the register content to be written.

The different register pages can be switched by writing the new page value to offset 255 of any page.

0x2: generate black test pattern: the whole image is black
0x3: generate red test pattern: the whole image is red

0x5: generate blue test pattern: the whole image is blue
0x6: generate aqua test pattern: the whole image is aqua
0x7: generate fuchsia test pattern: the whole image is fuchsia
0x8: generate yellow test pattern: the whole image is yellow
0x9: generate test pattern with colored horizontal and vertical bars
0xA: generate test pattern with small colored pixels all around the image
0xB: generate a gradient test pattern starting from black on the top and bright color on the bottom
0xC: generate a gradient test pattern starting from white on the left towards black on the right
0xD: generate frequent vertical gadient bars white to black, from left to right
0xE: generate black test pattern: the whole image is black
0xF: generate black test pattern: the whole image is black

These test patterns can be generated when the gspca_pac7302 driver is built with CONFIG_VIDEO_ADV_DEBUG=y. First start streaming e.g. with cheese then execute "v4l2-dbg --set-register=0x72 0x01" for value 0x01. These test patterns were generated using Labtec Webcam 2200 hardware.
