DE2 Board and HSMC\Santa Cruz daughter boards

Hi, 

 

Is there any way to connect HSMC\Santa Cruz daughter board to Altera DE2 Board ? 

 

And if there is no chance to do that, please give me advice - is it reasonable to looking for GPIO video daughter board (like that - http://eicom.ru/downloads/?pdf=/altera_pdfs/video_daughtercard_rm_061108/video_daughtercard_rm_06110...) with GPIO "interface" or it is impossible to find a combination of video and GPIO ? 

 

Thank you

The DE2 board has a good Analog Devices video decoder on board.  

Is it not possible to use that one?

Yes, sorry for inaccurate question. 

 

I need a daughter board with two video decoders (for evaluation stereo processing stuff) like that Altera video input daughter card (http://pdf.eicom.ru/datasheets/altera_pdfs/video_daughtercard_rm_061108/video_daughtercard_rm_061108...). But that board has Santa Cruz interface. 

 

So in general the trdb_dc2 (http://www.terasic.com.tw/cgi-bin/page/archive.pl?language=english&categoryno=39&no=50) board (connected to DE2 Board through GPIO), but with two cameras, it is what I'm looking for.

The Santa Cruz interface is not directly compatible with the DE2 GPIO interfaces. I am not aware of ready-made conversion boards from GPIO to Santa Cruz. One option would be to build/wire the circuit yourself. 

 

DE2 has two GPIO's so an other option is to add two daughter boards like TRDB_DC2 or similar.

It looks like that DE1/2 interface to Santa Cruz converter (e-gasket (http://www.slscorp.com/pages/snaponboards.php)) and that Santa Cruz-based TVP5146 video input daughtercard (http://www.altera.com/products/devkits/altera/kit-daughtercard.html) could solve my task.
