new NTSC/PAL adapter card will be helpful for customers who provide solutions for Surveillance, Endoscopy, Low Light Camera applications and other customers who use CCD cameras which support analog interface.
Customers who have bought Gumstix Overo COMs can directly plug in their analog cameras to the e-CAMNT_35x_GSTIX. The camera board directly plugs in to the 27 pin connector of the Gumstix Overo COMs. On the back-end side, the e-CAMNT_35x_GSTIX converts the analog signals to digital and generates a YUV output and this is further fed in to the OMAP35x/DM37x ISP interface based on whether the customer is using Gumstix Overo COM and Gumstix Overo Storm COMs. e-con Systems provides Linux drivers with full source code and sample applications for accessing the video frames, capture still images and record video.
“The e-CAMNT_35x_GSTIX is aimed at allowing our customers to interface the analog video sources such as NTSC/PAL cameras, analog thermal cameras, analog surveillance cameras, and other NTSC/PAL compatible video sources on OMAP35x/DM37x based Computer-on-Modules from Gumstix. “ said Mr. Ashok Babu, President, e-con Systems
Customers interested in customizing the e-CAMNT_35x_GSTIX can approach e-con Systems for getting the support.
The e-CAMNT_35x_GSTIX adapter board will be available for purchase from e-con Systems’ website on Feb 01, 2012.
