I decided it was time to make some kind of replacement for the bulky Amiga 500 RF modulator. This little thing has a nice composite output and a S-VIDEO output for great video quality. Unfortunately, the female DB-23 connectors are hard to find, so I wont be making many of these.
I figured the AD724 would do nicely.
A little about the AD724:
The AD724 is a low cost RGB to NTSC/PAL Encoder that converts red, green and blue color component signals into their corresponding luminance (baseband amplitude) and chrominance (subcarrier amplitude and phase) signals in accordance with either NTSC or PAL standards. These two outputs are also combined to provide composite video output. All three outputs can simultaneously drive 75 Ω, reverse-terminated cables. All logical inputs are TTL, 3V and 5V CMOS compatible.
I do have several PCBs and parts available, but since the DB-23 connectors are not easily available, I wont be posting this for sale.
