Basic Stamp 2 NTSC Video Generation
« on: June 29, 2010, 09:25:31 AM »
A surprising well video generation circuit built by me using a Basic Stamp 2. As the folks in the Parallax forums say it is impossible to generate a video signal with the BS2.

Here is a nice video generation using a Basic Stamp 2. It is fairly hard to generate NTSC Video signals and I have read on the Parallax forums that it is impossible to generate video signals with the BS2, I tried to prove them wrong and made a simple proof-of-concept circuit/program to demonstrate that by taking advantage of the Basic Stamp's single mindedness(It doesn't multitask), I used the PULSOUT command as a delay command in microseconds(See the Program attached).

The BS2 program and schematic are on my website:

Here's the program:

Thanks

My explanation for video signals is only for a B&W signal but there are some easy tutorials on how to make a color signal:

Of course the tutorial uses a PIC microcontroller instead of a BS2, but just use my attached BS2 program as a base for the video generation.
