Maker, developers and hobbyists that use the Raspberry Pi to create projects and gadgets mighty interested in a new Gert VGA 666 Adapter for Raspberry Pi that has been created to help you expand your projects even further.
Using the Gert VGA 666 Adapter for Raspberry Pi the 40 pin header provides all the GPIO signals that the Broadcom SoC requires to create the VGA signals.
The adapter consists of a PCB, a 40 pin header, a VGA connector and 20 resistors and uses many of the pins all but six, but requires very little hardware to implement.
“The Gert VGA 666 (6 bits per colour channel, hence 666) is a breakout/add on board for the Raspberry Pi Model B+ (will not work with Model A/B as the additional GPIO pins on the Model B+ are required).
It is an open source hardware design recently released publicly by Gert van Loo who was one of the hardware engineers that was instrumental in the initial design of the original Raspberry Pi (also one of the chip architects on the BCM2835 chip at the heart of the Raspberry Pi) and someone that many of you may have spoken to at Raspberry Jams or on the Raspberry Pi forums.”
For more information on the new Gert VGA 666 adapter for the Pi mini PC jump over to the Pi Supply website for details and the ability to purchase for just £6.00 and the full design files, schematics and other details are available onGitHub.
