The Arduino VGA Interface

Many of our projects need more in the area of displaying data, so we are putting together a VGA interface. Now the Arduino is pretty under powered when it comes to producing a video signal. so we are using our smart interface concept, and dedicating a DIY Barebones Arduino to producing the video signal, offloading that function from the host micro controller. It’s very low resolution, and only 16 color, but will work with any VGA monitor or vga enabled TV. Follow along as this project progresses. For a high resolution, high color version, see

If you would like to participate in the development process, I will send you a prototype version for $30, and replace it with the commercial board when it’s produced.
