Project Summary
  • We are designing a circuit to control a DMX512 strobe that will be synchronized with the shutter on a video camera.
  • Based on the shutter speed of the camera, we plan to fire a strobe during each frame to freeze high-speed motion preventing any blurring effects.
  • The only inputs into the system will be the video synchronized signal from the camera and the intensity of the light read by the sensor.
  • The outputs will be the intensity of the light from the strobe.
  • The recorded image will be analyzed to determine the effectiveness of the system.

Video Camera
  • Sony XC-75 CCD Black and White Video Camera Module
    • We will have to determine from where in the camera we will get the shutter signal
    • The input to the camera will be the reflected light from the image

timing circuitry
Timing Circuitry
  • Delay Circuitry to insure strobe fires during time when shutter is open.
    • This delay will be calculated and implemented with an RC circuit
  • 250 KHz clock signal
    • This will be used to shift the bits of data to the strobe at the necessary 250 Kbaud rate as specified by DMX
    • This will be implemented using a 555 timer

  • We will be using a photodiode to sense the light output from the strobe
  • Circuit design for converting photodiode output to useable levels has yet to be explored

power compensation
Power Compensation
  • Window Detector
    • This will determine the need to increase or decrease the intensity of the strobe
    • The measured value of intensity from the sensor is the input and will be compared to ideal intensity levels which will be determined experimentally
    • The output will be a signal denoting the need to increase or decrease the intensity

  • Snapshot DMX/D
    • Requires differential input of DMX512 signal
    • Will operate in DMX mode where intensity is the first byte of data received, duration is second, and the rate is set by DMX refresh

dmx interface
DMX Interface
  • Increment or decrement strobe intensity based on output from power compensation circuitry.
  • Use preset duration value (found experimentally) to maximize strobe effectiveness.
  • Output appropriate DMX signals to strobe using 250Kbaud timing clock.
dmx interface18
DMX Interface
  • The rate is determined by DMX refresh
    • The strobe will fire at the end of a packet of data
  • Sample packet of data

tradeoffs
Tradeoffs
  • Large shift register and counter would be difficult to implement and control.
  • Microprocessor is capable of controlling timing of data as well as transmission of data.
  • Window detector output will interface directly with a microprocessor without A/D conversion, thus eliminating round off error.
  • Software will make the project easy for future students to modify or add features.

  • Interrupt driven timing control of data to follow DMX 512 standards
  • Will output serial data to RS-485 interface as shift register would
