Synchronization separator

Synchronization separator: This circuit forms the missing link between various video sources and, say, a multisync monitor. Based on discrete parts only, it extracts the composite synchronization (i.e., a mix of the horizontal and the vertical component) and the vertical synchronization from a composite video signal with an amplitude of about 1 Vpp. The output sync signals are available in true as well as an inverted form to suit your monitor.

The positive composite video signal is filtered by R1-C2 and clamped by a Schottky diode, D1, to extract the sync components. The CSYNC signal is fed to XOP. crate N2 which functions as a; inverter when S1 is closed.

The CSYNC signal is also fed to a two-stage L-C filter which suppresses the line sync component and leaves the raster sync. VSYNC, at the inputs of opamp IC lb. Like. CSYNC, VSYNC is available in true or inverted form.

The circuit draws about 200 pA at a supply voltage of 5 V. The output signals are TTL compatible.
