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 PANASONIC EURO-4 is a full digital CHASSIS implementing the DIGIT3000 chipset family from ITT/MICRONAS and is the successor of the EURO2 CHASSIS Family series from PANASONIC.

It differs from previous by the high integration and compactness compared to other digital chassis types.

The PANASONIC EURO-4 runs Quiet and good but they have had a high rate of failures caused mainly by high number of dry joint points all around the chassis and particularly in the Frame deflection section which runs discretely HOT !



The Series STR-F6600 is specifically designed to satisfy the require-
ments for increased integration and reliability in off-line quasi-resonant
flyback converters. The series incorporates a primary control and drive
circuit with discrete avalanche-rated power MOSFETs.
Covering the power range from below 25 watts up to 300 watts for
100/115/230 VAC inputs, and up to 150 watts for 85 to 265 VAC
universal input, these devices can be used in a range of applications,
from battery chargers and set top boxes, to televisions, monitors, and
industrial power supply units.
Cycle-by-cycle current limiting, under-voltage lockout with hyster-
esis, over-voltage protection, and thermal shutdown protects the power
supply during the normal overload and fault conditions. Over-voltage
protection and thermal shutdown are latched after a short delay. The
latch may be reset by cycling the input supply. Low-current startup and
a low-power standby mode selected from the secondary circuit completes
a comprehensive suite of features. The series is provided in a five-pin
overmolded TO-3P style package, affording dielectric isolation without
compromising thermal characteristics.

I Flyback Operation with Quasi-Resonant Soft Switching
for Low Power Dissipation and EMI
I Rugged Avalanche-Rated MOSFET
I Choice of MOSFET Voltage and rDS(on)
I Full Over-Current Protection (no blanking)
I Under-Voltage Lockout with Hysteresis

LA7845 Vertical Deflection Output Circuit:

The LA7845 is a vertical deflection output IC for high-
resolution television and CRT display systems that use a
bus controller system signal processing IC. It can directly
drive the deflection yoke (including the required DC
component) from the bus controller system signal
processing IC's sawtooth waveform output. Connecting
the LA7845 and a Sanyo TV bus control system signal
processing IC in the LA7615 series allows all functions of
a color television signal system to be processed by the bus
system. Since the LA7845 has a maximum deflection
current of 2.2 Ap-p, it is optimal for use in large aperture
products, and is capable of driving 33 to 37 inch class

• Low power dissipation due to the provision of a built-in
pump circuit
• Vertical output circuit
• On-chip thermal protection circuit
• Good crossover characteristics
• Supports DC coupling.

ITT VDP3108 Single-Chip Video Processor


The ITT VDP3108 Is the evolution of the DIGIT2000 chipset.

1. Introduction
The entire video processing and controlling for a color
TV has been developed on a single chip in 0.8m CMOS
technology. Modular design and submicron technology
allow the economic integration of features in all classes
of TV sets.
Open architecture is the key word to the new DSP generation.
Flexible standard building blocks have been defined
that offer continuity and transparency of the entire
One IC contains the entire video and deflection processing
and builds the heart of a modern color TV. Its performance
and complexity allow the user to standardize
his product development. Hardware and software applications
can profit from the modularity as well as manufacturing,
system support or maintenance. The main
features are:
– low cost, high performance
– all digital video processing
– multi-standard color decoder PAL/NTSC/SECAM
– 3 composite, 1 S–VHS input
– integrated high-quality AD/DA converters
– sync and deflection processing
– luminance and chrominance features, e.g.
peaking, color transient improvement
– programmable RGB matrix
– various digital interfaces
– embedded RISC controller (80 MIPS)
– one crystal, few external components
– single power supply 5 V
– 0.8m CMOS Technology
– 68-pin PLCC or 64-pin Shrink DIL Package
1.1. System Architecture
Two main modules have been defined:
Video Processor and
Display Processor.
They are designed as silicon building blocks. Their partitioning
permits a variety of IC configurations with the aim
to satisfy the particular requirements of different applications.
Both, analog and digital interfaces, support
state of the art TV receivers as well as other environments.
Fig. 1–1 shows the block diagram of the singlechip
Video Processor which consists of both modules.

2. Functional Description

2.1. Analog Front End
This block provides the analog interfaces to all video inputs
and mainly carries out analog-to digital conversion
for the following digital video processing. A block diagram
is given in figure 2–1.
Most of the functional blocks in the front end are digitally
controlled (clamping, AGC and clock-DCO). The control
loops are closed by the Fast Processor (‘FP’) embedded
in the decoder.

2.1.1. Input Selector
Up to four analog inputs can be connected. Three inputs
are for input of composite video or S–VHS luma signal.
These inputs are clamped to the sync back porch and
are amplified by a variable gain amplifier. One input is
for connection of S–VHS carrier–chrominance signal.
This input is internally biased and has a fixed gain amplifier.

2.1.2. Clamping
The composite video input signals are AC coupled to the
IC. The clamping voltage is stored on the coupling capacitors
and is generated by digitally controlled current
sources. The clamping level is the back porch of the video
signal. S-VHS chroma is also AC coupled. The input
pin is internally biased to the center of the ADC input

2.1.3. Automatic Gain Control
A digitally working automatic gain control adjusts the
magnitude of the selected baseband by +6/–4.5 dB in 64
logarithmic steps to the optimal range of the ADC .
The gain of the video input stage including the ADC is
213 steps/V for all three standards (PAL/NTSC/SECAM/
Y/C), with the AGC set to 0 dB.

2.1.4. Analog-to-Digital Converters
Two ADCs are provided to digitize the input signals.
Each converter runs with 20.25 MHz and has 8 bit resolution.
An integrated bandgap circuit generates the required
reference voltages for the converters.
The two ADCs are of a 2-stage subranging type.



Multistandard Sound Processor
Release Notes: The hardware description in this
document is valid for the MSP 3400C – C8 and newer
codes. Revision bars indicate significant changes
to the previous version.

1. Introduction
The MSP 3400C is designed as single-chip Multistandard
Sound Processor for applications in analog and
digital TV sets, satellite receivers and video recorders.
The MSP-family, which is based on the MSP 2400, demonstrates
the progressive development towards highly
integrated multi-functional ICs.

The MSP 3400C, again, improves function integration:
The full TV sound processing, starting with analog
sound IF signal-in, down to processed analog AF-out, is
performed in a single chip. The IC is produced in 0.8 mm
CMOS technology, combined with high performance
digital signal processing.

The MSP 3400C 0.8 m CMOS version is fully pin and
software compatible to the 1.0 m MSP 3400 and MSP
3410. The main difference between the MSP 3400C and
the MSP 3410, consists of the MSP 3410 being able to
decode NICAM signals.

2. Features of the MSP 3400C:

2.1. Features of the Demodulator and Decoder
The MSP 3400C is designed to perform demodulation
of FM-mono TV sound and two carrier FM systems according
to the German or Korean terrestrial specs. With
certain constraints, it is also possible to do AM-demodulation
according to the SECAM system. Alternatively, the
satellite specs can be processed with the MSP 3400C.
For FM carrier detection in satellite operation, the AMdemodulation
offers a powerful feature to calculate the
carrier field strength, which can be used for automatic
search algorithms. So, the IC facilitates a first step towards
multistandard capability with its very flexible
application and may be used in TV-sets, satellite tuners,
and video recorders.

The MSP 3400C facilitates profitable multistandard capability,
offering the following advantages:
– two selectable analog inputs (TV and SAT-IF sources)
– Automatic Gain Control (AGC) for analog input: input
range: 0.14 – 3 Vpp
– integrated A/D converter for sound-IF inputs
– all demodulation and filtering is performed on chip and
is individually programmable
