On circuit diagrams, plugs are displayed as viewed from the back side, the solder side. Chips are displayed as viewed from above; also, see the small semicircular cut for finding the correct orientation. When in doubt, see the corresponding description on the legend page.
You need the following parts to build this cable:
One solderable male S-Video plug
Two solderable female RCA ports, preferably, in red and black colors
Two shielded 1-wire cables of about 20 centimeters each; the impendance should be 75 Ohm but an audio cable should also work
Step 1. Solder one end of each cable onto the S-Video plug.
Step 2. Solder the other ends of the cables onto the tips and the outer rings of each of the two RCA ports. You should have the following connections:
|S-Video plug|| RCA port |
|1, Chroma GND|| Red, ring |
|2, Chrominance|| Red, tip |
|3, Luminance|| Black, tip |
|4, Luma GND|| Black, ring |
You can find the description of all parts used on the diagrams at the legend page.
