The camera chip

The Gameboy Camera is using the Mitsubishi M64282FP, a.k.a. the "Artificial Retina" which is a 128*128 pixel grayscale CMOS image sensor that can perform image adjustments in realtime. The data sheet is available in /docs/misc/ of the file hub.

Documentation related to the GB Camera itself (not only the sensor) can be found in the following github repository: https://github.com/AntonioND/gbcam-rev-engineer
