Product Launch - Harrier USB/HDMI Camera Interface Board
Active Silicon has added a new product to their innovative Harrier range - the USB/HDMI Camera Interface Board. This interface solution provides simultaneous HDMI and USB Video Class (UVC) v1.1 output for autofocus zoom cameras including the Tamron MP1110M-VC, MP2030M-GS and Sony EV series. It serves as both video output and UVC/USB control input port and supports modes up to 1080p60.
USB Video output is enabled when the board is connected to a SuperSpeed USB 3.x host. The HDMI output is always enabled when an HDMI cable is connected. On power-up, the camera video mode may be selected by the DIP switch settings on the board. Camera video modes, along with other camera and interface board functions, may also be controlled by serial communications over RS-485/RS-232/TTL, or by using UVC/USB commands over the USB connection. The USB interface serves as both (UVC) video output and USB based control input port. For developers who are new to creating UVC based applications, there is a working example UVC application and software API in the Harrier USB Software Development Kit.
