osd-pip-color

Andras,

This is the one I have but it says “Out of Stock” at the moment:

What is the video ASIC?


(pyn) #11

It will be awfully heavy, huge and expensive…


(Andras Schaffer) #12

Pyn: Thank you for your valuable input. It is highly appreciated that you take time and register to this forum to share your insight with us. Also you made pretty clear that you are not part of the target customer segment of this product.

Intersil/Renesas TW2837


(davidbitton) #14

My day job is in security. I wonder how many NVRs we’ve sold with that chip in it. When do you expect to have something to sample (EPR or PPR)?


(Andras Schaffer) #15

It was used (and still used) in quad video matrix switches, and I think the number of switches sold is huge :D. I expect to have first public beta batch of boards to be ready in the second half of may.


(davidbitton) #16

great.

Post must be at least 20 characters.

Don’t take me wrong… I love the concept and the demo flight video, but unfortunately you’re right, this is an OSD that will probably cost more than the flight controller itself so it is not for my pocket…

I’ll still follow the project closely and will wait for the price announcement… maybe I’m wrong about it!


(Andras Schaffer) #18

The price will be less than 200 usd and definitely more than 150. If you compare it to the cost of a Cube I think it is feasible.


(Marc Dornan) #19

It is totally what is expected. With Ardupilot people do think $12 minimOSD. For me I really think PIP would take FPV to another level. So I am happy to pay. If it is successful then I am sure hobbyking or banggood will lower the cost.

Thanks for blazing a trail.

Now if this could be integrated with EZ wifibroadcast that would be sweet! I know the resolution is SD so it may not be feasible.

What’s the power consumption of the OSD?
I’m wondering how many mA does the video processor beast suck up…

Can you post some current measurements?


(Andras Schaffer) #21

Max power consumption is around 1.8Watts


(Marc Dornan) #22

The more I look at this to better it seems to have wing cameras viewable in PIPs.

As regards inspiration for OSD features have you looked at the feature set of probably the best MinimOSD fork

Will we be able to configure the display with the same features as exist in the latest firmware for MinimOSD? Or is the graphical nature of the display such that it is harder to do this?


(Roman Ryabyy) #23

Interesting project. What will be the ~price for the board ?
I have not enough knowledge’s in the video subsystems, so have simple questions:
a) will simple analog video quality improved ?
b) will it be possible to connect more sensors/peripheral to osd ? such as some boards to controll battery each cell voltage, etc


(Andras Schaffer) #24

-Approx 150 usd
-Video quality will not degraded, some sharpening and post processing options are available.
-No, strictly MavLink.


(Jakob Schmidt) #25

Hey, any news on this?


(Andras Schaffer) #26

yepp,sourcing parts for the first batch… code is completed cleaning up to make it publishable…


(Christian Labeck) #27

Is there a chance to get a prototype for evaluation in the meantime?


(Asim Javed) #28

I am a little confused here ! Did you use another chip like max7456 for text overlay ? Or you have used built in OSD features of TW2837 ?
Actually I have developed a Quad mux using TW2837 and Atmega32u4 successfully, However i am stuck at osd .Any Help ?
