Arduino - VGA Color Bars Gen.

A very simple cheap and sometimes usefull project that you can use for adjust or check TV / Monitors Linearity ( with VGA - input )

Step 1: Components:

  • 1 - Arduino UNO - R3
  • 3 - Resistors - 470 r
  • 3 - Diodes - 1N4148
  • 1 - Mini Pot ( Trimmer - 10k )
  • 1 Connector - DB 15 ( female ) or a VGA cable 9 cutted in the midlle .
  • 1 box for fix the Connector ( DB 15 - VGA ) ...or a VGA Cable - cutted in the midle .

Step 2: The Sketch

The version used for copile the Skecth was Arduino IDE 1.8.7.

Step 3: Schematics

I used the Digital outputs of Microcontroller alike :

D 5 - Red " beam "

D 6 - VSYNC

D 7 - HSYNC

D 8 - Green " beam "

D 9 - Blue " beam "

The only reason for diodes, resistors and the ( MIni Pot - Trimmer ) are juts for drop the Voltage for 0.7 v ( required levels ) for lcd & leds Monitors .

The levels of the Colors are affeccted directly ...like you will see into your gadget !

Have Fun !

Step 4: RUNNING ADJUSTMENTS...
