TINYOSD & TINYFINITY – A TINY OPENSOURCE VIDEO TX WITH FULL GRAPHIC OSD

Merry belayed Christmas and a happy new year everyone. I know, I am running a tiny bit late. My original plan was to release the tinyOSD and tinyFINITY sources ready for Christmas but then the usual things got into the way and I had to postpone this post. But here it is: I am releasing my sources of my custom full graphic OSD with insane update rates to the world. But that’s not all! I am also releasing a c ...

CHOOSING A SURFACE FINISH FOR FINE-PITCH COMPONENTS

Welcome to our new blog series based on our experience with PCB manufacture and assembly, courtesy of our engineers. Over the years, we’ve seen our fair share of blunders and subsequent losses over the course of the hardware development process. With a bit of understanding, forward-thinking and patience many of these problems can easily be avoided. This series aims to tackle the understanding part with a lo ...
