This is the UNPROGRAMMED ATmega1284P-PU microcontroller for the project Platino Pelco, as described in Elektor Magazine edition July & August 2015. Do not buy this microcontroller if you do not know how to program it. There is no pre-programmed microcontroller available for this project.
Experimenting with the Pelco-D security camera communication protocol now is easy using a Platino PCB with an ATmega1284 microcontroller and a Platino Add-on Board to hold the RS-485 interface. Demonstration programs are in BASIC. Pan, tilt and zoom the camera, read back position information, remotely configure a camera, you can do it all with this project. Detailed communication protocol description and all source code is available so anyone can personalize it for his/her surveillance application.
