Open 7400 prize: VideoOverlayShield from Low Voltage Labs

Posted on Friday, September 28th, 2012 in 7400 contest, contest by DP

Low Voltage Labs donated a VideoOverlayShield to the Open 7400 Logic Competition. Send in your entry and this and other cool hardware can be yours.

The Arduino compatible shield board overlays text on analog video, using the Maxim MAX7456 on-screen display chip. This board allows easy overlay of text onto an analog video signal, NTSC or PAL. Connect this board to your favorite Arduino processor board to get started.

Thanks to Low Voltage Labs for sponsoring the 2012 Open 7400 Logic Competition!

  • Drone: So these go for around $330 USD and NO published calibration procedure online or otherwise? Given what's inside - I don't think I'll be considering...
  • Pekka Akselin: This is ridiculous!? :-) We are back at 256(!) byte EPROMs that needed multiple, a handful, of voltages to run! :-(
  • KH: Let's try a back-of-envelope calc balancing energies. From MCP1700 datasheet, there are graphs for a 200mA load step. Estimate the energy shortfall as 12uJ. Say...
  • Daniel: It's been a week and my comment is still awaiting moderation. Apparently the CIA doesn't want their involvement known?
  • KH: Agree, so okay, I guess he must have learned from somewhere. 100nF and 1000uF is so far apart, that was jarring; it's more magic incantation...
