Give a second life to your old TV; build a creative and authentic display for any retro project. The TV-Out module will be your best friend and allow for composite video signals out of an Arduino.
For example, the Arduino Uno is enough for simple video games such as pong, snake, or Space Invaders. These are the good old classics, where 128 × 96 is enough resolution.
The module is wired for matching two signals from the microcontroller (Sync and Video) and combining them into a composite PAL signal. The module is connected to the TV with one wire via RCA connector.
The module is connected via two 3-pin jumper cables:
The bottom three pins are used to connect the ground and video.
For the top three, only one pin is used:
To draw graphics, use the TvOut library for Arduino. It hides all the complicated details of protocol and synchronization.
Attention! The library is tied to the timings of the boards, so you can not select pin numbers. Connect the module only to the pins indicated in the table below.
