Convert digital LCD signal to RGB signal for CRT display

    I'm working on using Intel PXA255 to have simultaneous LCD panel & CRT
    display capability.

    How do we convert the digital LCD signals to the analog RGB for CRT
    display. Namely from the PXA255 LCD controller outputs are:

    L_FCLK : Frame clock
    L_BIAS : AC Bias / data enable
    L_LCLK : Line clock
    L_PCLK : Pixel clock
    L_DD[15:0] : pixel_data

    There are dedicated EPSON graphics controller such as SD13860 that is
    abled for simultaneous LCD & CRT output, but cost is a factor, so i
    need to explore more ingenius methods.

    how can the HSync, VSync, R, G, B signals be derived.

    For the RGB signals, this is my concept on going about it. Suppose it
    is in 16-bit in 565 format.

    RED -- (L_DD[15:11])
    GREEN -- (LDD[10:5])
    BLUE -- (L_DD[4:0])

    1. Use 8-bit (256-levels) to convert to its analog equivalent for the
    3 signals. But who to synchronise with the HSync & VSync signals that
    are to be extracted from the digital clocks.

    For HSync & VSync, how do we correlate with the Line Clock, Frame
    Clock & Pixel clock ?

    SOme hints would be appreciated. Thanks All.
