dot generator

Definition

Electronics

  • In a TV receiver, a signal generator utilized to adjust beam convergence on the picture tube, by producing a pattern of evenly spaced dots on the screen. When the convergence is not correct, the dots appear in groups of three, one each for red, green, and blue. When convergence is correct, the three dots come together to form a single white dot. Alternatively, the dots may be squares.
