Ordering Info


The lightweight Harrier 10x AF-Zoom USB/HDMI Camera (Tamron MP3010M-EV) offers 10x optical zoom and 16x digital zoom with simultaneous display of both HDMI and USB Video Class (UVC) v1.1 output.

The camera is based on the Tamron MP3010M-EV an extremely compact block camera that benefits from Tamron’s high quality optical design and low reflection coating technologies. It  offers many sophisticated camera features like Electronic Image Stabilization (EIS), Wide Dynamic Range mode, Day/Night function (ICR), Noise Reduction (3D+2D) and many more.

USB Video output is enabled when the USB interface board is connected to a SuperSpeed USB 3.x host.  On power up, the camera video mode may be selected by DIP switch settings on the board. Camera functions may also be controlled using UVC commands, or by sending VISCA commands over RS-485/RS-232/TTL or over the Harrier Virtual COM port (USB). The USB interface serves as (UVC) video output, USB based control input port and optional power supply. An example UVC video application (with source code and Visual studio projects for C++/CLI, C#, and VB) is available on request from Active Silicon.

Active Silicon also offers camera solutions with 3G-SDI/HD-SDI/HD-VLC™ or IP  video output. For more information contact our team.

Connector Specifications Harrier USB/HDMI Camera Interface Board

KEL30 Connector (J1)

The interface board is fitted with a 30-way miniature connector to link to the matching connector on the camera.

Connector type: KEL USL00-30L.

Mating cable: A 100mm 30-way micro coaxial cable (AS-CIB-USL30-100MM) is supplied with the camera. Different lengths are available.

Power and Control Connector (J3)

The interface board is fitted with an industry standard 10-way connector for power and serial control.

Connector type: JST SM10B-SRSS-TB

Mating cable: A suitable cable is available as part of the cable kit AS-CIB-CBLKIT-003-A (see ordering information).

See Harrier USB/HDMI Camera Interface Board datasheet for pin assignment and output options.

JTAG Connector (J4):

Test connector used in manufacturing for circuit verification.

HDMI Output Connector (J5)

The interface board is fitted with a micro HDMI display output connector. HDMI output is active when an HDMI cable is connected.

Connector type: HDMI Type D (micro).

Mating Connector: Standard micro HDMI cable.

There is an additional HDMI video output directly on the camera body.

USB 3 Connector (J6)

This USB Type C connector provides a USB Video Class (UVC) v1.1 video stream for connection to a host PC. The connector also provides a UVC control port for camera control (optional). It can also provide power to the camera or board if the USB connection has a high enough current/power rating.

Connector type: USB Type C (5 Gbps)

Mating Connector: Standard USB 3.x Type A/C to Type C cable (5 Gbps min.)

Video and Control Mode DIP Switch (SW1)

The interface board is fitted with an 8-way DIP switch (SW1) to enable selection of camera video format on power-up, and VISCA camera control communication modes.

See Harrier USB/HDMI Camera Interface Board datasheet for the configuration of the DIP switch elements.

VISCA Control:

The serial communication is routed through the interface board directly to the camera. However, this serial signal is also connected to the camera interface board; extended VISCA commands (not used by the camera) may be used to control the interface board.

For information on interface board operation using extended VISCA serial commands, refer to the Harrier USB/HDMI Camera Interface Board datasheet.

Additional Information

The HarrierControl camera software can be used to configure custom camera features on the Harrier USB/HDMI Camera Interface Board over the USB or serial connection.
