Success of 2D game console

Long time efforts have paid off and we were able to create a 2D game console for NTSC TV!! The features and specifications of the console are as follows.

Easier method of color generation for NTSC Television

 Please read this and this (optional) for better understanding before you read this post.

Few popular methods used to generate different colors for NTSC are
1. using AD725 IC for RGB values to NTSC color conversion
2. using a standard 3.579545MHz as the color carrier and producing different delays to get different phase and in-turn different colors in NTSC. This can be done by using a number of buffers to create delays and selecting the required color among these delayed signals by the use of a multiplexer.
