Richtige Fernseher haben Röhren!

In Brief: On this site you will find pictures and information about some of the electronic, electrical and electrotechnical Obsolete 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.

- The search this blog feature provided by Google is a real search engine. If you're pointing particular things it will search IT for you; or you can place a brand name in the search query at your choice and visit all results page by page. It's useful since the content of the site is very large.

Note that if you don't find what you searched for, try it after a period of time; the site is a never ending job !

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 ! !

The ST639xmicrocontrollers aremembers of the 8-
bit HCMOS ST638x family, a series of devices specially
orientedto TVapplications.DifferentROMsize
and peripheral configurations are available to give
the maximum application and cost flexibility. All
ST639xmembers are based on a building block approach:
a common core is surroundedbya combination
of on-chip peripherals (macrocells) available
from a standard library. These peripherals are designed
with the same Core technology providing full
compatibility and short design time. Many of these
macrocells are specially dedicated to TV applications.
Themacrocells of the ST639x family are: two
Timer peripherals each including an 8-bit counter
with a 7-bit software programmable prescaler
(Timer), a digital hardware activated watchdog
function(DHWD), a 14-bit voltage synthesis tuning
peripheral, a Serial Peripheral Interface (SPI), up
to six 6-bit PWMD/A converters, an AFC A/D converter
with 0.5V resolution, an on-screen display
(OSD) with 15 characters per line and 128 characters
(in two banks each of 64 characters). In addition
the following memory resources are available:
program ROM (up to 20K), data RAM (256 bytes),
EEPROM(up to 384 bytes). Refer to pin configurations
figures and to ST639x device summary (Table
1) for the definition of ST639x family members
and a summary of differences among the different

4.5 to 6V supply operating range
8MHz Maximum Clock Frequency
User Program ROM: Up to 20140 bytes
Reserved TestROM:Up to 340 bytes
Data ROM: User selectable size
Data RAM: 256 bytes
Data EEPROM: Up to 384 bytes
42-Pin Shrink Dual in Line Plastic Package
Up to 23 software programmable general purpose
Inputs/Outputs, including 2 direct LED
driving Outputs
Two Timers each including an 8-bit counter with
a 7-bit programmable prescaler
Digital Watchdog Function
Serial Peripheral Interface (SPI) supporting
S-BUS/ I2C BUS and standard serial protocols
SPI for external frequency synthesis tuning
Up to Six 6-Bit PWMD/A Converters
AFC A/D converter with 0.5V resolution
Five interrupt vectors (IRIN/NMI, Timer 1 & 2,
On-chip clock oscillator
5 Lines by 15 Characters On-Screen Display
Generator with 128 Characters
All ROM types are supported by pin-to-pin
EPROMand OTP versions.
The development tool of the ST639x microcontrollers
consists of the ST638x-EMUemulation
and development system to be connected via a
standard RS232 serial line to an MS-DOS Personal
