Mistral Solutions " as part of its continual enhancements to the OMAP35x evaluation module (EVM) from Texas Instruments - has launched the Multimedia Daughter Card (MDC) for the OMAP35x EVM.
The MDC, a plug-in card for the OMAP35x EVM, supports both video and camera input in addition to a high-speed USB 2.0 port. The card plugs into the expansion connector present on the main board of the OMAP35x EVM.
The MDC enables users to capture video, via S-Video, composite or component inputs, to be processed by the OMAP3530 application processor. The card provides a HSUSB HOST port and a camera connector to support camera input and has the provision to support future daughter cards.
"The Multimedia Daughter Card is a much awaited addition to the OMAP35x EVM.The addition of multimedia video input enhances the functionality to the EVM by allowing customers who want to prototype devices with camera capabilities," said Samyeer Metrani, vice president - design services (U.S.) at Mistral Solutions.
