iShot® Sony FCB-EV7520 w/ Interface Board OEM Evaluation Kit

The Sony FCB-EV7520 HD low light block camera uses a 1/2.8" Exmor CMOS image sensor (approx. 2.14 million effective pixels) that supports FULL HD (high definition) to produce high-quality images. Using progressive scan, images with a wide dynamic range can be obtained with the newly developed image signal processor (Wide Dynamic Range mode).

The Sony FCB-EV7520 low light block camera is equipped with a bright zoom lens with 30× optical zoom and F1.6 aperture (optical zoom + digital zoom = 360×).

Low-noise images can be obtained even in low-light environments using the Noise Reduction function.

The Sony FCB-EV7520 low light block camera's video signals can be output as digital and analog Y/Pb/Pr outputs. Depending on register settings, you can select from a variety of digital output methods: 1080p/59.94, 1080p/50, 1080p/29.97, 1080p/25, 1080i/59.94, 1080i/50, 720p/59.94, 720p/50, 720p/29.97, 720p/25.

An infrared (IR) Cut-Filter can be disengaged from the image path for increased sensitivity in low light environments. The ICR will automatically engage depending on the ambient light, allowing the Sony FCB-EV7520 low light camera to be effective in day/night environment.

VISCA is a communications protocol, which enables the FCB-EV7520 to be controlled remotely from a host computer/controller. VISCA is trademark of Sony Corporation.

Six memory locations are provided to temporally save and recall up to sixteen sets of camera settings.

A Privacy Zone Masking function (max. 24 blocks) is available.

A Motion Detection (MD) function is available.

A title composed of up to 11 lines can be set for displaying on the screen. 20 characters can be used on one line.

Adjustable AE response speed.


HDMI Interface Board

HDMI digital and analog HD video output*

  • Up to 1080p60 resolution output
  • Automatic camera detection
  • Video format selection by DIP switches
  • TTL or RS232 VISCA level serial control interface
  • Supply voltage 6V to 9VDC **
  • Auxiliary power output 5VDC, 1 A
  • Size 48mm x 45mm x 17mm

Low power consumption
The board has been designed by using components that require low energy consumption. The intensity that circulates in components is reduced. This also reduces the radiated emission for EMC regulation. It confers an electromagnetic behavior suitable with the hardest medical and aeronautical standards.

Key switch local control
Connecting the camera to a computer to drive it is not a requirement. DIP switches available on the board will allow you to select the desired camera video format.

You can also control the main VISCA functions such as zoom, freeze, factory preset that are preprogrammed by connecting a push-buttons keyboard on the board. It is possible to modify this configuration to replace it by your own OEM functions.

Tailor-made image processing functions
The HDMI interface board is based on a powerful Xilinx FPGA. Graphic overlay and image processing functions can be implemented to the image flow in real time.
