The APM MinimOSD Rev. 1.1 Kit is tailored for use with ArduPilot Mega and the MAVlink protocol, and designed to be as compact as possible.
The main components are an ATmega328P 8 bit microcontroller with an Arduino bootloader, and a MAX7456 monochrome on-screen display, and on board is a MinimOSD, an Arduino-based display board.
Programming is done through an FTDI-compatible 6-pin cable.
It features two independent power and ground sections to isolate the OSD's analog stage: a +5V section for the ATmega and the OSD's digital stage, powered through the FTDI cable or other +5V source; and a regulated +5V section for the OSD's analog stage, powered through the video in/out header and capable of handling up to +12V input.
Solder jumpers are available to combine the two power and ground sections if desired.
Starting on 4/30/2012, all boards are version 1.1, which reflects a change in the voltage regulator to deal with excessive heating issues.
