I was wonder what kind of badged (label) does Sparrow had...?
Is FX-1 from Sparrow?

czietz wrote:Judging from the components missing (two crystals, two diodes, some transistors), I suspect this is the "famous" PLL to lock the system clock to the PAL color frequency. It is present in all Ataris with a PAL modulator -- starting with the 520STM. See it here in the Falcon schematic: https://www.dev-docs.org/docs/htm/searc ... 28Rev+G%29, page 2, the block annotated "stuffed in PAL systems only". derkom's Sparrow is a "non-PAL" model and hence has the crystal oscillator that is missing in mikro's machine.
As for the things in the output circuitry: mikro's has a modulator, derkom's hasn't. Hence only the transistor and diodes to generate composite sync, much like in the ST.
