It's low end obviously but it works. I'm working on getting raw data
(without calibration, 16-bit samples) from it but don't have too much
time currently (it requires some further "investigation").

There is potentially an issue with black level calibration. I have
a patch but I'd have to check if I got that right. Let me know if you
have such problems.
