The video overlay device and the remote climate sensor.
Some of the later work was done using a B/W television hence the lack of color in the screen shots.
Temperature and pressure sensor circuit.
The device requires a 5V D.C. power source to be connected either via the power jack or the 5V and GND bannana posts.
Make sure that the keyboard is plugged in before powering the device.
The time must always be reentered when power is restored. Press t to enter the time and date.
To read the help screen, press F1 when the device is not prompting the user for input.
Refresh rate of the device is NTSC standard at 60 Hz when running, the image is very stable and without any flicker. The text displayed is slightly translucent, with the background image showing through the white parts of the text. The degree of translucency can be varied by adjusting the potentiometer on the main board.
The ADC readings are updated at 60Hz, and have a range of 5.08 - 0V depending on the actual voltage of the 5V power supply.
The accuracy of the pressure sensor is about +- 3 mmHg. This could be improved using either a larger power supply for the sensor or a software lowpass filter on the ADC input for the sensor.
The temperature sensor is very accurate, measuring with up to .25 degree Celsius accuracy.
The system clock is accurate to 30 seconds per day.
A built in calendar updates the date according to the month of the year. Leap years are supported by the device.
