Breadboard VGA card

I'd rather be soldering DIN connectors all day than building that on breadboards

Yeah, the madnessness of that bread boarding is amazing. I would probably, as you said, have used a micro controller or maybe a CPLD. Not nearly as geeky.DrF wrote: ↑Mon Jul 08, 2019 10:17 amPretty hard core way of doing things
In this day and age I guess it would be easier to use any old microcontroller or other such gadget to emulate a VGA card, but where's the madness in that
I wonder how hard it would be to just straight up copy a old PCI VGA card, they never used to have many chips anyhow, I guess the core would be the issue, emulating it or recreating it somehow?
