Mini AV Test Box

An Overview Of The Mini AV Test Box
           Expanding upon the very crude VGA test box gave way to this much more refined and fit-in-your pocket style AV test box. The design was small form factor centric and focused on few parts for basic functionality. The outcome was a device that did exactly what it should across a wide variety of platforms and different devices. If you're a technician out there in the world this might be something for you to have on to quickly test out monitors or speakers.

What To Do Now
           If you were able to navigate your way through the assembly source code, firstly I congratulate you because that stuff was pretty thick. The happy ending you get from understanding how the assembly code generates VGA is that you can now move beyond displaying boring static stuff and give dynamic VGA a shot. Similarly with audio, you've seen how a single tone can be generated, but what about multi-tones or music? There's a world of opportunity waiting for you to expand upon the concepts explored in this project, it's just a matter of you asking yourself: what do I want to make now?

           As a single project, the mini AV test box was very successful. I feel it did a good job picking up where the VGA test box left off in terms of making something that people could actually use and toss around without fear of parts flying out.
           The design lent it self to using parts costing less than a total of $10 which is important as most people are working on shoe-string budgets, similarly the hardware build process was focused around the design of a PCB which gives the whole project a more professional feel.
