I have an application that requires the bitsy to control a USB camera, and then supply NTSC composite video to other systems. Are there any recommended ways of doing this? We are building our own 'personality' board, so perhaps there is an interface chip that might do the translation quickly, and simply for us?

Any hints would be appreciated.

Hi Joshua,
as far as NTSC support goes, we have a board designed for it. it is the AGC, that featuers a Graphics Controller capable to drive LCD and CRT or TV (PAL and NTSC supported). We still are testing the board and so far there is support for LCD and CRT. The TV suport is the next on our list and should be ready not long from now. With AGC (provide it meets your space constrains), you will be able to drive the TV output without any complicated logic on the connector board. The AGC accepts a connector board or cables and you should be able to simply route the signals to the appropriate interface connector and save in expensive circuitry on yuor connector board.
If you want to use your own chip, I may suggest the Epson S1D13806. This is probably a little overkill for carrying out only TV output, but it's the one we use on the AGC boards.

What are the dimensions of the AGC board? And when will it be available? Does it support all the features available on the Bitsy Plus platform?
