BOB-4-HG (header connector version) module for NTSC or PAL video.

BOB-4 is the 4th-generation low-cost video information overlay module. BOB-4 lets your microcontroller or PC display text and vector graphics on standard TV monitors. With huge user-definable character sets*, BOB-4 also supports bitmap graphics and multiple languages. BOB-4 generates background video on-board, or automatically genlocks to your video source and superimposes characters over the image. Printable characters and commands control BOB-4 through a fast RS-232 style data link, much like a serial printer. BOB-4 links directly to most microcontrollers. NTSC and PAL video standards are supported in a single hardware version. Field firmware upgrades are supported via PC connection.

Previous versions of the BOB family have relied on 3rd party OSD chips for part of their functionality. These chips were once common in the days of analog video systems (VCR) but have now become obsolete. BOB 4 is a complete custom design that does not rely on 3rd party technologies. This will ensure that the BOB 4 will be a stable platform for quite some time.
