YUV/YCbCr to RGB converter

No Comments »

Video recorder, DVD player and TV game, have component video output.
The component video signal is like RGB video signal, but it cannot
connect to RGB monitor directly. Thus I designed and built YUV(YCrCb) to
RGB converter to use old TV monitor or video equipment which does not
have component video input.

The contents of component video signal are these three signals, Y, R-Y
and B-Y. You will able to understand that these are loss-less
conversion. However, in order to reduce overall video signal band-width
to be recorded or transmitted, the band-width of chrominance components
are reduced and some compression processes are applied. Human eyes are
sensitive to luminance but not sensitive to chrominance. The quality of
chrominance components, such as band-width, SNR and digitizing
resolution, can be reduced compared with luminance component.

Dual force 2 Controller

Pin Pin
Name
Description
1 DATA Brown wire = Pin 1 on control board
2 CMD Orange wire = Pin 2 on control board
3 9VDC White wire = Pin 4 on control board
4 GND Purple + Black wire: Purple = Pin 8 on control board. Black = pin 3 on control board
5 VCC Red Wire = pin 5 on control board
6 ATT Yellow wire = pin 6 on control board
7 CLK Blue wire = pin 7 on control board
8 N/C Not connected (not used in PSX or PS2 controls and often not present in plug). Used for Light Gun games.
9 ACK Green Wire = pin 9 on control board

This applies to the Mad Catz. Dual force 2, programmable controller
for PSX, PSONE, and PS2. The control board pins are numbered, but if
unable to see due to the resin, pin one has a square PCB pad. If
looking at the control from underside, with the lower casing removed,
the pins can be counted sequentially from left to right. There should
be 9 in total. PLEASE NOTE: both purple and black wires are connected
to the same pin (pin 4) If the black wire is not connected, the vibrate
function will operate continuously.
