Analog Front-End

Provides interface to standard SMIA 16-pin DIP socket with CCP , CCI , Clock, ShutDown signals and Digital / Analog Power Supplies.

High speed differential CCP interface is implemented with ST SMIA832 receiver.

Power supplies, have built in multiple range current sensors, measuring active and leakage consumption in range from 1uA up to 500mA.

The RMS converter measures noise component off analog power supply.

On Board Processing

The combination of local FPGA, SDRAM and high speed RISC processors provide support for extensive set of internal features.

FPGA process raw CCP data stream, perform real-time extraction/verification of various video timing parameters and buffers the data in internal 32MB SDRAM buffer. CCI interface is implemented in firmware with programmable timing features beyond SMIA spec. range in resolution of 10 ns.

Host Interface

Captured data can be send to host PC, via high speed 1394b serial interface, either as a formated video stream or raw file data.

Power Supply

Scooby Box is powered from 1394 cable 12 power supply . SMIA sensor powers are generate with low noise linear regulators.
