Astronomical Digitial Video System Hardware Timer and Camera Controller

HTCC is a device to coordinate the timing function of ADVS.
It has a built in GPS (standard) or external GPS (optional).
It connects directly to the camera using the Hirose GPIO cable and to the host PC using USB a cable.

Currently the device is hand wired and it is the intention for production versions of HTCC
to use surface mount technology, therefore the case will be smaller than that depicted below.


HTCC should be mounted on the telescope as shown in this mock setup.
