USB / HDMI interface card
Active Silicon expands its Harrier product line with a USB / HDMI camera interface card. 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 camera series. It serves both as a video output and as a UVC / USB control input and supports modes up to 1080p60.
USB video output is enabled when the card is connected to a SuperSpeed USB 3.x host. The HDMI output is activated by connecting an HDMI cable. When the interface card is switched on, the camera video mode can be selected using the DIP switch settings on the card. The video modes of the camera and other functions of the camera or the interface card can also be controlled by serial communication via RS-485 / RS-232 / TTL or by using UVC / USB commands via the USB connection. The USB interface serves both as a UVC video output and as a USB-based control input. For developers who are new to creating UVC-based applications, the Harrier USB Software Development Kit includes a sample UVC application and a software API.
