Analog video converter

The video converter enables the integration of analog video sources in embedded video systems.

  • 4 signal inputs
  • phyCAM-P and phyCAM-S - interfaces
  • Techwell TW9910 converter

100 mm x 34 mm


The video converter with 4 signal inputs as well as phyCAM-P & phyCAM-S - Interface enables analog video sources to be integrated into embedded video systems.

The converter board VM-008 is equipped with the Techwell TW9910.
This converter (color frame grabber) digitizes the analog image signals (PAL and NTSC television systems) into a digital data stream.

An integrated video multiplexer enables the connection of up to 4 composite cameras (FBAS). An S-Video input is intended for applications with high quality requirements.

The digital image data is then transmitted as an ITU-R 601 or ITU-R 656 YCbCr (4:2:2) data stream on the phyCAM-S and phyCAM-P interface made available to the controller board.

PHYTEC offers everything Basisplatinen with phyCAM-S or phyCAM-P connection the possibility to connect the sensor board directly via a cable. On the software side, the corresponding converter drivers and demo programs for various PHYTEC controller boards are installed directly in the BSP provided.
