For those that are interested in connecting an NTSC (or PAL) source to their Leopardboard, I've created a TVP5150 video decoder daughterboard which connects directly to the J5 port. It works with the latest RidgeRun SDK for the Leopard. You can get the board, the patch, and instructions at www.sleepyrobot.com.
The board is designed to work with both the older 1.4 version of the Leopard, and the newer 1.5 version, which allows for a true BT.656 interface. I guess it should also work with the DM365 Leopard, but I haven't tried it myself.
Hi, I am keen to get one of these. What is the best way to contact you? I sent an email but have not heard back.
I've added a patch for the RR SDK which allows you to use the TVP5150 board in actual BT.656 mode. This requires one of the newer Ver 1.5 DM355 Leopard Boards. It eliminates some of the jaggies and ghosting that you can get when using the generic (6 bit!) mode.
It's at the same place: www.sleepyrobot.com
I'm still trying to find a reasonable way to ship international that gives delivery confirmation, but doesn't cost an arm and a leg.
Does this work with the DM365 Leopard Board?
Could you tell me how to buy one of these boards?
I tried to go to the www.sleepyrobot.com page, and pressing on the purchase button
just points to the same page.
