Hardware News   Hardware News : New Scan Doubler tests look good!
   posted by IOWASURFER on 7-Dec-2007 16:19:32 (33034 reads)
A Scan doubler for the little man!

Please let it be known if you would like a scan doubler and if its worth making
a bunch of them for the community...

I have been working with a engineer who has been creating
a scan doubler which i just tested the prototype last night.



The 2.0 Screen...Mmmm Purple..

I asked him to please make a scan doubler for the
AMIGA community like he has done for the ATARI community...

The 1.3 screen classic Amiga all the way..


An Amiga 1200 and the scan doubler... Running Work bench 3.1

This Scan doubler has the potential of working with almost all of the classic
Amiga's 500/600/1000/1200/2000/3000/4000 etc and it's way affordable.
If things work out with this unit I am testing then the units will be
available for AMIGANS soon after all testing and a few very minor bugs are squashed.

The scan doubler on a Amiga 1000 for size comparison.


The Scan doubler inside guts...


Shown running 2.0 Work Bench...

Please support this new product by posting here if you could use one.
Initial costs are to be determined but I see them way under $100$ and
as you can see by the 3 AMIGA systems I already tested this new scan
doubler on look great with a VGA flat screen monitor initial reactions are
good this will be a awesome add on to any serious
Amiga collector/hobbyist who wants to run vga...

Amiga 500 Running Wings...


Amiga 500 Running Wings...Looks great on a Lcd flat screen

Amiga 500 Running Wings... Love this game..
And heck who doesn't want to run on a regular monitor?

Here is Desert Strike screen shots... running


Here is Desert Strike screen shots...1

Here is Desert Strike screen shots...2

Here is Desert Strike screen shots...3

Here is Desert Strike screen shots...4

I'd buy at least one too!

Although I have one for my A4000 (an Arxon which plugs in the Video slot), it doesn't work quite right with LCD monitors (works great with CRTs).

Please let us know of any further developments!

Just because no one else has asked: Will/should this work as an input to cards like the Picasso II?

And for people asking the price: Roy States in Post #22 that he hopes to keep it at or under $65 US. And he says in post #40 that the completed test unit is definitely coming in on budget so far.

Feature Summary:
* Connects to 23-pin RGB port on the back of your Amiga and has a 15-pin d-sub VGA socket ( #7 )
* PAL and NTSC auto-detect ( #22 , #35 and #36 )
* 16-bit colour depth (Suitable for ECS/OCS, however newer AGA modes may suffer colour degradation) ( #15, and #36 )
* This unit will act as a de-interlacer (flicker fixer) as well as a scandoubler ( #24 )
* Specs of the chip are Max horizontal resolution is 768 and max vertical resolution is 1024 ( #36 ) but Roy hopes it will pass through any out-of-band resolutions ( #28 )
* Roy says he will give the schematics to anyone who wants to build their own ( #22 ) (Maybe another ACube deal can be struck here? )

I'm interested in one.

Edit: I found an online copy of the datasheet for the AL250/251

Wow. I go looking for the state of monitor options for old Amigas, and I find this. Great!

I would love to buy one of these. Then I could dispose of my 1084D without feeling the guilt trip my old A500 would give me. The 1084D currently takes 30 minutes to "warm up" and uses far more space than an LCD.

$65 sounds great to me.

Hello All,

Sorry I haven't posted in awhile. I was busy with the design
of the converter. I had a hard time getting the broadband
noise out of the unit that is inherent with the conversion
process. I am almost ready to take orders. I am saving
up some startup money for the project budget. Once it
gets going it will be self sustaining.

The price will be $65 USD not including shipping.
Shipping will be $5 inside the continental USA and
$12 to $15 overseas.


I am going to limit everyone to one unit initially but
when I service everyone I will start to take multiple
orders for the unit. This will give you time to decide
if you really want more than one based on how well
you like the unit you have.

If anybody is dissatisfied with my product I will refund
your money plus the cost of return shipping.

I will let everyone know here when I start to actually
take orders. I have already sent Joe the first unit and
we should hear from him about it.

I have tried to post the the Amiga.org site to let those
folks know what is going on but I can't get registered for
some reason. I would appreciate it if someone here who
is registered there would let them know.

Roy

Hello everyone,


I am ready to take orders. One to a customer please
and first come first served. Price is $65 USD plus shipping.

You should be aware it might take some time to get
to everyone. I make about three every two weeks. It is
a hobby for me and I do my best work when I don't rush it.
What that means is while some may get their converters
soon others will have to wait through a long hot summer.

I have tried to pick an enclosure which matches the A500
in color and style. I have also managed to make the cable
long enough for most setups without introducing any significant
video signal noise.

To order send an email with "Amiga converter" in the title
to:
rjrtty@aol.com

I will acknowledge and collect them and send you a return
email at the same return address when I have a unit ready to
ship to you. You can then acknowledge that email with a shipping
address so I can calculate the total price and relay it back to you.

I will take Paypal or a personal check which ever is most convenient
for you..... complete details will be transmitted when i contact you.

I always liked the A500 for its processor and custom video
and audio chips. Bringing SVGA capability to it will be a pleasure.

Roy

You have done a great thing for the Amiga community here Roy. We all owe you some thanks. Most of us have 1084 monitors that are close to death and this offers a real alternative to the crazy prices on ebaY. Our Amigas thank you.
