Hi, I would suggest that this is another oscilloscope module, not really
a module for
any type of video synthesis... (for example, there is no control of
video sync, chroma, or
gain. There is no signal mixing, or voltage control, or switching,
generating, or multiplying).
While this is an interesting and apparently worthy oscilloscope module,
it is not the first.
Doepfer already announced and showed a dedicated Oscilloscope module
this year at
NAMM, and for some time our Cynthia Macintosh module has been available
totally great scope when used in conjunction with our Touch Screen
Monitor Modules (Pal & NTSC) running (free) Wavewindow, PixelToy, or
software - among others.
Of course, using the internal dual processors, you can also run Windows
software on The Cynthia Macintosh Module such as PicoScope, or Zelscope
features a spectrum analyzer...
Creating modern day analog or digital video synthesis modules is quite a
tall order technically,
and I feel that we have to be very careful about throwing claims about
the "first" this, or the
"first" that, without careful examination.
None the less, the whole range of MFB modules look quite interesting!
