    DXC-390/390P. The purpose of this output pulse is to externally lock the frame memory timing to the HD/VD signal or the sync signal of the DXC-990/990P and DXC-390/390P so that the right start time of the external frame memory can be precisely controlled by this signal. In short, this output pulse indicates that the video signal following the edge of this pulse is the valid video signal.
