Data Sheets

Harris Semiconductor 8 bit 20 MSPS Flash A/D (Please see pages 2 and 5).
National LM1881 Sync Separator

The following 2 figures show the details of timing near the Vertical Synchronization interval. (From the National LM1881 Data Sheet).
Connection diagram and basic timing signals:

Detailed timing during vertical retrace interval. Note that vertical blanking is 21 horizontal lines. Also note that the first 9 lines have ``equalizing pulses'' every 31.8 microseconds. Hence, you will have more about 23 edges to count after the vertical sync output goes low before the top line begins.
