Arduino users looking for a VGA Shield may be interested in a new updated piece of hardware which has been created by Masih Vahida and launched by the Kickstarter crowdfunding website.
The VGADuino-II, is a Graphic Shield specifically designed for Arduino with a higher resolution, and higher speed and offers support for 256 colours. Check out the video below for more details.
VGADuino is a shield that is made for arduino with all the libraries and samples that user can easily stack it on the arduino board and starts programming. it can connect Arduino to any kind of TV or Monitor with VGA 15 Pin connector and user will be able to show text, numbers, draw lines, tables, shapes and even small images on the screen and use the TV or Monitor as a big display for arduino.
Last year i successfully made VGADuino-I and sold it around the world. This year i upgraded the design and made VGADuino-II which the second revision of VGADuino. In this version (VGADuino-II) i used NXP-LPC1756 ARM chip as a main microcontroller and XILINX XC95144XL CPLD for refreshing the display and taking care of the sync signals. there is also a SD Ram to keep the screen’s pixel color data.
