e-con Systems - an embedded design services company specializing in development of advanced camera solutions and services has announced its camera adapter board ,e-CAMNT_35x_GSTIX, to support analog camera interface for Gumstix Overo COMs.
e-con's adapter board can be used as a plug-n- play to interface NTSC/PAL camera and along with the adapter daughter card, e-con also provides drivers for Linux. The adapter board supports S-Video IN and CVBS IN.
The adapter card is for customers providing solutions for surveillance, endoscopy, low light camera applications and other customers who use CCD cameras which support analog interface.
Customers with Gumstix Overo COMs can directly plug in their analog cameras to the e-CAMNT_35x_GSTIX as 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 that is fed into the OMAP35x/DM37x ISP interface based on whether the customer is using Gumstix Overo COM and Gumstix Overo Storm COMs.
e-con 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 Ashok Babu, President, e-con Systems.
Customers interested in customizing the e-CAMNT_35x_GSTIX can approach e-con Systems. The adapter board is now available for purchase from the company website.
e-CAM is e-con’s reference design featuring a camera board with a camera module interfaced to a processor on its high speed CMOS interface.
