Minim OSD v0.1

Minim OSD v0.1
Minim OSD v0.1

This is a mini Arduino based on-screen display board. It's tailored for use with ArduPilot Mega and the MAVlink protocol, and designed to be as small as possible.
It's main components are an ATmega328P 8 bit microcontroller with an Arduino bootloader, and a MAX7456 monochrome on-screen display. 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.


• ATmega328P with Arduino bootloader
• MAX7456 monochrome on-screen display
• FTDI cable compatible pinout
• Standard 6-pin ISP header
• Two independent power sections with an LED indicator on each
• Solder jumpers for combining the power sections
• +5V 500mA regulator for up to +12V supply input (5-12v range)
• Solder jumper for PAL video option
• Exposed test points for HSYNC and LOS

Voltage: 5-12v
Dimensions: 50 x 18 x 10mm
Weight 4g

Hi guys, were there any 'files' associated with this product? It seems like all the HobbyKing 'Files' have vanished so i'm struggling with pinouts! Anyone else getting this?

Yes, they have misteriously disappeared for all products. I talked to Online Support, they are aware of it and working on it. That was two days ago.

Hi can this be used in conjunction with the KK2.0 board?

Nope...this osd cant display anything unless it receives Mavlink data from the FC..which is the APM 2.5 or the Multiwii (You can use this with multiwii as stated by Vladimir below but for that you will have to flash a different firmware) Mavlink is just the name of the protocol which is used to communicate with this OSD..but if you are a coder or hacker then this can be programmed to receive data over the SPI bus of the atmega324 MCU on the KK2....but with the native code on this osd ...the KK2 is not supported...
