VGA to SCART RGB Converter

This small and simple circuit allows you to connect your VGA card to your TV via SCART with the great advantages of using RGB over S-Video.

The benefits of using RGB rather than S-Video are superior contrast and clarity. This card XORs together the horizantal and vertical synchronization signals to form a composite synchornization output. Additionally it adjusts output for input polarity.

You should set the correct resolution and frequency on your VGA card. The resolution should normally be 720×576 for PAL tv and the refresh rate should be 50Hz.

SMD components are used to make the PCB as small as possible so you can place it inside a D-SUB case.

You can find the Eagle PCB layouts at the project page.
