Digital signal processor (DSP) is the combination of digital signal processing theory and VLSI technology. At present, DSP technology is widely used in communication, voice, image, aerospace, instrumentation and other fields, and is playing an increasingly important role in promoting the digitization of contemporary information processing.

This paper introduces an image acquisition card based on TI’s low-end DSP chip TMS320F206 and video A / D chip TLC5510, which provides a cheap solution for low bit rate multimedia communication.

Brief introduction of 1tlc5510 chip and TMS320F206 chip

1.1 introduction to TLC5510

TLC5510 is a CMOS, 8-bit, 20 MSPs analog / digital converter (ADC). It uses semi flash architecture. TLC5510 is powered by a single 5V power supply, which only consumes 100MW of power. It also has an internal sample and hold circuit, a high resistance parallel output and an internal reference resistor.

Compared with flash converter, semi flash structure reduces power loss and chip size. The number of comparators can be greatly reduced by implementing the conversion in a 2-step-process. The waiting time for data conversion is 2.5 clock cycles.

Without external reference voltage source and precision resistor, only internal reference resistor and vdda can achieve 2V full scale conversion range. The linearity error at 25 ℃ is 0 ± 75 LSB, and the maximum linear error in the whole temperature range is 0 ± 1LSB。 The difference linearity error at 25 ℃ is 0 ± 5 LSB, and the maximum value of the difference linearity error in the whole temperature range is 0 ± 0.75LSB。

2 hardware interface circuit design

2.1tlc5510 front end circuit design

TLC5510 front-end circuit is shown in Figure 1.

In the circuit, analog power vdda and digital power vddd are independent of each other. 4.7 is used between vdda and digital ground agnd and between vddd and analog ground DGND μ F capacitance, 0.1 μ F capacitor and ferrite ring decoupling and eliminate the power ripple. Agnd is separated from DGND to avoid the noise of analog signal caused by digital signal. The amplified video signal is directly added to the 19 pin of TLC5510. The clock signal of TLC5510 is provided by the clock signal output pin clkout1 of TMS320F206.

2.2tlc5510 and TMS320F206 interface circuit design

The interface circuit diagram of TLC5510 and TMS320F206 is shown in Figure 2.

TLC5510 is digitally connected to the ground of TMS320F206. Because there is a digital output buffer inside TLC5510, the pins of TLC5510 [D1: D8] gntms320f206 [d0: D7] are directly connected. The clkouti pin of TMS320F206 provides clock signal to TLC5510 through a small resistance. TMS320F206 pin a11 and is are logic control. When a11 is logic high and is is logic low, TMS320F206 can read sampling data from TLC5510.

2.3 serial communication between TMS320F206 and computer

The image data stored in TMS320F206 is sent to the computer at 9600b / s through the serial port. The computer stores the data in the buffer area, and then displays it on the display through the pixel to image conversion program.
