CN0263 User Guide (DEPRECATED)

This reference design has been RETIRED or DEPRECATED, which means this board is no longer supported or being sold by Analog Devices.

This page is here for historical/reference purposes only.


CN0263 is a circuit that provides a very robust solution, with integrated overvoltage (short-to-battery [STB]) protection, for receiving CBVS video signals in harsh environments. It follows the traditional, proven architecture of isolating/separating a low voltage integrated circuit from the outside world and using an amplifier circuit for signal conditioning and protection.

ADA4830-1 is a single monolithic, high speed difference amplifier that integrates input overvoltage (short-to-battery) protection of up to 18 V with a wide input common-mode voltage range and excellent ESD robustness. It is intended for use as a receiver for differential or pseudo differential CVBS and other high speed video signals in harsh, noisy environments, such as automotive infotainment and vision systems. The ADA4830-1 combines high speed and precision, which allows for accurate reproduction of CVBS video signals, yet rejects unwanted common-mode error voltages.

ADV7180 automatically detects and converts standard analog baseband television signals compatible with worldwide NTSC, PAL, and SECAM standards into 4:2:2 component video data compatible with the 8-bit ITU-R BT.656 interface standard. The simple digital output interface connects gluelessly to a wide range of MPEG encoders, codecs, mobile video processors, and Analog Devices, Inc., digital video encoders, such as the ADV7391.

The ADV7180 and ADA4830-1 are fully automotive qualified, which makes both products ideal for infotainment and visionbased safety systems for automotive applications.

The EVAL-CN0263-EB1Z Board connects to mini-USB connector and is powered by a +7.5 V supply or +7.5 V “wall wart”.

Jumper settings

See the table in the image below for the jumper settings. Values in red are the default settings for the EVAL-CN0263-SDPZ.

Jumper 8 is for the P7 to P0 Output/Input Pin Mapping of ADV7180. Table below summarizes the output/input mapping depending on chosen format and mode of operation.

Test setup

  1. Connect the output of the power supply or wall wart to the +7.5V DC connector jumper on the EVAL-CN0263-SDPZ Evaluation Board
  2. Flick the switch next to the “+7.5V DC” connector so that the nearby LED turns on. The EVAL-CN0263-SDPZ Evaluation Board board is now powered up.
  3. Connect the Universal Serial Bus (USB) cable from your computer (the computer where ADV Register Control software is installed) to the mini USB connector on the EVAL-CN0263-SDPZ Evaluation Board. An LED near the USB connector on the board should turn on.
  4. Connect video input and output cables
  5. Launch the evaluation software

Installing the Evaluation Software

  1. Extract the file and open the file setup.bat.

    NOTE: It is recommended that you install the software to the default directory path C:\Program Files (x86)\Analog Devices\ADV Register Control 7.0\ and all National Instruments products to C:\Program Files\National Instruments\

  2. Click Next to view the installation review page

  3. Click Next to start the installation

Using the Evaluation Software

Main Tab

Running the System

  1. Open the ADV Register Control Software
  2. When the ADV Register Control opens a window called ADV Register Program Configuration opens, make sure that the “USB Connected” indicator is green
  3. If indicator doesn't light up, redo the power-up and connect to your computer sequence
  4. Select the proper script according to the model type of your ADV7180. In the case of CN0263 board, ADV7180_ADV7180@_ADV7393-VER.1.0LQFP64.txt shall be selected.
  5. To program the CN0263 evaluation board press Setting → Scripts
  6. Select which script you want to run on the drop down menu. The desired script depends on the analog video inputted to the ADV7180, and the desired analog video output from the video encoder on the evaluation board
