I need to know the timing of a 640 X 480 VGA signal. I want to build a
very little pattern generator to repair monitors. I did it some years ago but
for the new microprocessor based monitors my generator doesn't have enough
precision.

Greetings,
Yves

Hello Yves, here it goes:

"VGA industry standard"
Clock frequency 25.175 MHz
Line frequency 31469 Hz
Field frequency 59.94 Hz

One line:
8 pixels front porch
96 pixels horizontal sync
40 pixels back porch
8 pixels left border
640 pixels video
8 pixels right border
---
800 pixels total per line

One field:
2 lines front porch
2 lines vertical sync
25 lines back porch
8 lines top border
480 lines video
8 lines bottom border
---
525 lines total per field

Sync polarity: H negative, V negative
Scan type: non interlaced.

Good luck,
Jeroen.
