    Video On Screen Display MAX7456 Character Map

    Here is a character map that I compiled that I will use with mine as soon as I figure out how to interact with it.

    Here is the board that Mikro has shown.

    There is a guy that has created a site that has some scripts that will convert the files needed for character maps and screen config files to and from PNGs. Very useful, I started editing these things 1 pixel at a time. Now i just use paint to change the characters.

    hey,

    I know, very old thread but very interesting though I want to build an OSD for my aeroquad. I want to display heading, speed, battery voltage and a virtual horizon on the video signal.

    did you make any progress with the MAX7456?

    thanks

    I don't think it's a high priority for development at the moment as v3.0 is under development. Definitely could be done with the MAX7456 though. If you want to look at building one, you can just grab the MAX7456 breakout from Sparkfun and wire it straight into the v2.0 shield. There's lots of good information out there on how to interface with it. The datasheet is pretty clear (imo!) and there's example code for Arduino here.

    of course, the 3.0 release is more important, I fully agree. It's just something I want to play around with for my self. thanks for the link
