Re: Dragon 32 RGB SECAM and video tests

Hello Mike Thank you for your interest and care for all those things about the Dragons. Yes you are right, I wrote on 27 july "The good input of luma is not exactly the output Y of the VDG ... For his RGB converter, Retrocant must pick up into the PAL machines and adapt with a transistor or other wa...

Re: Dragon 32 RGB SECAM and video tests

I agree that "the more development the better" as you say John.
The RGB board seems interesting, but I understand that the MC 6847 has to be removed ...
Waiting for the schematics !

Re: Dragon 32 RGB SECAM and video tests

Is there anybody interested by a french SECAM circuitry ? On the power board, we have the RGB conversion with th...

Re: Dragon 32 RGB SECAM and video tests

So you have a Dragon 64. When I look at its schematics, I see a LM 7905 in the video section. The diode is a clamp diode, any one is good for that like 1N914 or 1N4148. Mine is a little blue one. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Clamper_(electronics). On my Dragon, this circuity is part of the power bo...

Re: Dragon 32 RGB SECAM and video tests

Hello Alfredo Incredible ! I am not yet able to create those beautiful schematics ! I have looked at yours, so I complete a little : The good input of luma is not exactly the output Y of the VDG, it should be Y + the added lines that pads the signal for use the IC 6847 in Europe (625 lines). It must...

Re: new Member Spain

Hello Alfredo.
For your RGB project, you can look at the Dragon SECAM schematics that I have posted in the Dragon hardware section.
That Dragon SECAM has a RGB output.

Re: Dragon to CoCo

Hello again Other ways using MMC. The MMC extension board on a real Dragon or a real coco can work directly with BAS programs using MLOAD and MSAVE commands. These files, specific of MMC, have .DGN and .CCO extensions. The RETOKC and RETOKD commands is designed to convert them. If you have a real Dr...

Have a look here, it's called "cross development" https://vintageisthenewold.com/coco-cross-development-part-1/ If your coco BAS program can be loaded on Xroar emulating a coco, it can ...
