Small form factor
The Picolo Tymo PCB is no larger than 168 mm x 64 mm
(6.61 in x 2.51 in). This small PCB size corresponds
to the Low Profile form factor. Two brackets are included, allowing users to install the board in either a low profile small standard PC or in a conventional larger PC. All video signals are available on one single compact standard connector.
One compact HD-44 video input connector
Sixteen composite video inputs, four chroma inputs,
one video output and one cascade input are available
on the bracket or internally through a header connector.
Four S-Video inputs - In applications
using high-quality S-Video cameras, Picolo Tymo interfaces
up to four such cameras allowing full resolution real-time
acquisition on four channels. The Picolo Tymo also supports
a mix of composite and S-Video cameras as long as
only one camera type is connected to a single digitizer.
I/O and watchdog
One video output - To take advantage
of standard video monitors often available in video
surveillance systems, the Picolo Tymo is equipped
with a composite video output.
One cascade video input - Through
the use of its cascade video input, the Picolo Tymo
is able to echo on its video output the signal available
on any of the video inputs of any Picolo Tymo board
in the system.
The Picolo Tymo is equipped with nine Euresys professional
I/O lines: four contact-closure inputs and five solid-state
relay outputs. The board includes a full featured
watchdog, which is backward compatible with Picolo
32-bit, 66 MHz PCI bus, 3V and 5V
The Picolo Tymo offers a 32-bit, 66 MHz, 3V and 5V
compliant PCI bus. It allows users to get the maximum out of its architecture and to operate multiple boards in parallel on a single PCI bus. The Tymo can be plugged in to any PCI or PCI-X slot.
