There was an error discovered in 2011 in the 10359 & 10359A boards - due to a wrong source the sensors (J2,J3,J4) were powered from the 10359's 2.5V instead of the correct 3V coming from 10353 - the result was almost not noticeable - vertical stripes with a 4-pixel period (only with 10338d boards) - FixGuide.

10359 current clock tree

10359 is an optional multi-function board for Elplhel Model 353/363 Cameras. It can be connected between the 10353 Processor board and a sensor one (up to three sensor boards can be connected) This board has the same FPGA-DDR SDRAM pair as on the 10353 (Processor) board. It uses just one extra conductor in the flex cable to configure the on-board FPGA, rest of the JTAG programming interface pins share connections with the data signals. This board can fit in the standard camera enclosure (when only one sensor board is used) and does not interfere with the boards that use inter-board connectors (i.e. 10357) - the 10359 is mounted on the other side of the 10353 board.

10359 board can be used in the following applications (as well as other ones):



Power consumption

Idle (programmed): 3.3V 0.19A

Connect 10353, 10359 and sensors

Note: FPC cables we provide are not symmetrical (neither faces nor ends). Check the pictures below for correct cables connection.

Note: (after power on everything should work - frames from 10338 are transfered to 10353 as in 10338-10353 set up)


Available modes

1. Program sensors either all at the same time or independently.

2. Switching between 3 direct (w/o buffering in 10359 DDR SDRAM) data streams from sensors.

3. Direct alternation mode (frames from 2 sensors alternate with programmable sequence).

4. Alternation mode with buffering:

Note: Vertical parts can be aligned by setting individual starting rows & lines to each sensor.
