Richtige Fernseher haben Röhren!

In Brief: On this site you will find pictures and information about some of the electronic, electrical and electrotechnical technology relics that the Frank Sharp Private museum has accumulated over the years .

Premise: There are lots of vintage electrical and electronic items that have not survived well or even completely disappeared and forgotten.

Or are not being collected nowadays in proportion to their significance or prevalence in their heyday, this is bad and the main part of the death land. The heavy, ugly sarcophagus; models with few endearing qualities, devices that have some over-riding disadvantage to ownership such as heavy weight,toxicity or inflated value when dismantled, tend to be under-represented by all but the most comprehensive collections and museums. They get relegated to the bottom of the wants list, derided as 'more trouble than they are worth', or just forgotten entirely. As a result, I started to notice gaps in the current representation of the history of electronic and electrical technology to the interested member of the public.

Following this idea around a bit, convinced me that a collection of the peculiar alone could not hope to survive on its own merits, but a museum that gave equal display space to the popular and the unpopular, would bring things to the attention of the average person that he has previously passed by or been shielded from. It's a matter of culture. From this, the Obsolete Technology Tellye Web Museum concept developed and all my other things too. It's an open platform for all electrical Electronic TV technology to have its few, but NOT last, moments of fame in a working, hand-on environment. We'll never own Colossus or Faraday's first transformer, but I can show things that you can't see at the Science Museum, and let you play with things that the Smithsonian can't allow people to touch, because my remit is different.

There was a society once that was the polar opposite of our disposable, junk society. A whole nation was built on the idea of placing quality before quantity in all things. The goal was not “more and newer,” but “better and higher" .This attitude was reflected not only in the manufacturing of material goods, but also in the realms of art and architecture, as well as in the social fabric of everyday life. The goal was for each new cohort of children to stand on a higher level than the preceding cohort: they were to be healthier, stronger, more intelligent, and more vibrant in every way.

The society that prioritized human, social and material quality is a Winner. Truly, it is the high point of all Western civilization. Consequently, its defeat meant the defeat of civilization itself.

Today, the West is headed for the abyss. For the ultimate fate of our disposable society is for that society itself to be disposed of. And this will happen sooner, rather than later.

OLD, but ORIGINAL, Well made, Funny, Not remotely controlled............. and not Made in CHINA.

Every CRT Television saved let revive knowledge, thoughts, moments of the past life which will never return again.........

Many contemporary "televisions" (more correctly named as displays) would not have this level of staying power, many would ware out or require major services within just five years or less and of course, there is that perennial bug bear of planned obsolescence where components are deliberately designed to fail and, or manufactured with limited edition specificities..... and without considering........picture......sound........quality........

..............The bitterness of poor quality is remembered long after the sweetness of todays funny gadgets low price has faded from memory........ . . . . . .....
Don't forget the past, the end of the world is upon us! Pretty soon it will all turn to dust!

Have big FUN ! !

VIDEO Luminance + Chrominance + RGB Amplifier 456711b with TBA560C + TBA990 + TBA540 + TBA530 (all PHILIPS)

Note that is the first ITT Chassis employing ASIC ICs in the video sections, previous were all discrete semiconductors components made.

 The TBA series of i.c.s developed by Philips for use in TV receivers comprises the TBA500Q, TBA510Q, TBA520Q, TBA530Q, TBA540Q, TBA550Q, TBA560Q, TBA750Q and TBA990Q, the Q signifying that the lead out pins are in zig-zag form as illustrated in other posts here at  Obsolete Technology Tellye !
 The operations the various i.c.s in this series perform are as follows:
 TBA500Q: Luminance Combination. Luminance amplifier for colour receivers incorporating luminance delay line matching stages, gated black level clamp and a d.c. contrast control which maintains a constant black level over its range of operation. A c.r.t. beam limiter facility is incorporated, first reducing the picture contrast and then the brightness. Line and field flyback blanking can also be applied.
 TBA510Q: Chrominance Combination. Chrominance amplifier for colour receivers incorporating a gain  controlled stage, a d.c. control for saturation which can be ganged to the receiver's contrast control, burst gating and blanking, a colour killer, and burst output and PAL delay line driver stages.
 TBA520Q: Chrominance Demodulator. Incorporates U and V synchronous demodulators, G-Y matrix and PAL V switch. This type will be superseded by
 the TBA990Q (development of which was nearing completion in 1972) listed later.
 TBA530Q: RGB Matrix. Luminance and colour difference signal matrix incorporating preamplifiers.
 TBA540Q: Reference Combination. Decoder reference oscillator (with external crystal) and a.p.c. loop. Also provides a.c.c., colour killer and ident outputs. TBA550Q: Video signal processor for colour or monochrome receivers. This i.c. is the successor to the TAA700. It is very similar electrically to the TAA700. TBA560Q: Luminance and Chrominance Combination. Provides luminance and chrominance signal channels for a colour receiver. Although not equivalent to the TBA500Q and TBA510Q it performs similar functions to those i.c.s.
 TBA750Q: Intercarrier Sound Channel. Incorporates five stage intercarrier sound limiter/amplifier plus quadrature detector and audio preamplifier. External
 TBA990Q: Chrominance Demodulator. Incorporates U and V synchronous demodulators, G -Y matrix and PAL V switch. This is at the time  in the final stages of development and was been available from March 1972 onwards. As I have given information previously on the TBA550Q and TBA750Q we  may concentrate in this and the concluding post in the series on the colour receiver i.c.s. such as multistandard sets or bistandard color decoders here at  Obsolete Technology Tellye !

 Fig. 1 shows in block diagram form their application for luminance and chrominance signal processing. We will look first at the TBA520Q and TBA530Q which are in use for example in the Philips G8 single standard colour chassis.

TBA530Q RGB Matrix Preamplifier:
The internal circuitry of this i.c. is shown in Fig. 2 while Fig. 3 shows the immediate external connections as used in the Philips G8 chassis. The chip layout is designed to ensure tight thermal coupling between all transistors to minimise thermal drift between channels and each channel has an identical layout to the others to ensure equal frequency response characteristics. The colour -difference signals are fed in at pins 2, 3 and 4 and the luminance input is at pin 5. Trl and Tr2 form the matrix in each channel, driving the differential amplifiers Tr3, Tr4, Tr5. The operating conditions are set by Tr5 and Tr7, using an external current -determining resistor connected to pin 7. Pin 6 is the chassis connection and pin 8 the 12V supply line connection (maximum voltage permitted 13.2V, approximate current consumption 30mA). External load resistors are connected to pins 1, 14 and 11 from a 200V line and the outputs are taken from pins 16, 13 and 10. The output pins are internally connected to the load resistor pins via Tr6 which provides a zener-type junction giving a level shift appropriate for driving the bases of the external output transistors directly. External l0kpF capacitors are required between the output and load resistor pins to bypass these zener junctions at h.f. Feedback from the external output stages is fed in at pins 15, 12 and 9. A common supply line should be used for this and any other i.c.s in the series used in the decoder, to ensure that any changes in the black level caused by variations in the supply voltage occur in a predictable way : the stability of the supply should be not worse than ±3% due to operational variations to limit changes in picture black level during receiver operation. To reduce the possibility of patterning on the picture due to radiation of the harmonics of the demodulation process the leads carrying the drive signals to the tube should be kept as short as possible : resistors (typically 1.51J) connected in series with the leads and mounted close to the collectors of the out- put transistors provide useful additional filtering of these harmonics.

TBA520Q Chrominance Demodulator:
In addition to U and V balanced synchronous detectors this i.c. incorporates a PAL switch which inverts on alternate lines the V reference signal fed to the V synchronous detector. The PAL switch is controlled by an integrated flip-flop circuit which is driven by line frequency pulses and is under the control of an ident input to synchronise the V switching. Outputs from the U and V demodulators are matrixed within the i.c. to obtain the G-Y signal so that all three colour difference signals are available at pins 4, 5 and 7. The internal circuit of this i.c. is shown in Fig. 4 while Fig. 5 shows the immediate external circuitry as used in the Philips G8 chassis. The separated U and ±V chrominance signals from the PAL delay line/matrix circuit are fed in at pins 9 and 13 respectively. The U and V reference signals, in phase quadrature, are fed in at pins 8 and 2. Taking the U channel first we see that the U chrominance signal is fed to Tr18 base. This transistor with Tr19 forms a differential pair which drives the emitters of the transistors-Tr4, Try, Tr6 and Tr7-which comprise the U synchronous demodulator. The U reference signal is fed to Tr12 base, this transistor with Tr13 forming a further differential pair which drive the bases of the synchronous demodulator transistors. The B -Y signal is developed across R3 and appears at output pin 7. A similar arrangement is followed in the V channel except that here the V reference signal fed in at pin 2 to the base of Tr22 is routed to the V synchronous demodulator (Tr8-Tr11) via the PAL switch Tr14-Tr17. This switch is controlled by the integrated flip-flop (bistable) Tr24 and Tr25 (with diodes DI and D2). The bases of the transistors in the flip-flop circuit are driven by negative going line frequency pulses fed in at pins 14 and 15. As a result half line frequency antiphase squarewaves are developed across R13 and R14 and fed to the PAL switch via R57 and R58. The ident signal is fed into the base of Tr32 at pin 1. A positive -going input to pin 1 drives Tr32 on so that the base of Tr24 is shorted and the flip-flop rendered inactive until the positive input is removed. In the Philips circuit a 4V peak -to -peak 7.8kHz sinewave ident signal is fed in at pin 1 to synchronise the flip-flop. The squarewave signal is externally available at pin 3 from the emitter -follower Tr39 which requires an external load resistor. The R-Y signal developed across R9 is fed via R10 to output pin 4. The G-Y signal appears at the output of the matrix network R4, R5 and R6 and is fed via R7 to pin 5. The d.c. voltages applied to pins 11 and 12 establish the correct G -Y and R-Y signal levels relative to the B -Y signal. Pin 10 is internally connected and no external connection should be made to this pin. The U and V reference carrier inputs should be about IV p -p, via a d.c. blocking capacitor in each feed. These inputs must not be less than 0-5V. The flip-flop starts when the voltage at pin 1 is reduced The amplitudes of the pulses fed in at pins 14 and 15 below 0.4V : it should not be allowed to exceed -5V. to drive the flip-flop should be between 2.5 and 5V p-p.
For a colou bar signal a U input of approximately 360mV is required at pin 9 and a V input of approximately 500mV is required at pin 13. The supply is fed in at pin 6 and this also sets the d.c. level of the B-Y output signal. The maximum voltage allowed at this pin is 13.2V. In early versions of the Philips G8 chassis a TAA630 i.c. was used in place of the TBA520Q.

Synchronization and Power supply control with TDA2590

TDA2590 horizontal oscillator combination

— The TDA2590 is a monolithic integrated circuit designed
as a horizontal oscillator combination for TV receivers and monitors.

It is constructed using the Fairchild Planar* process.
(<62) Y

Switch-mode power supply generating a variable pulse-width modulating signal by digital control techniques synchronized with the horizontal line rate of the receiver. Logic circuits operating against fixed references provide overload and short-circuit protection by rapidly decreasing the variable pulse-width signal duration during various fault conditions.
