MicroVGA is low-cost Microcontroller to VGA interface providing 80x25 16 color text mode (physical resolution is 800x600 at 60 Hz). This makes MicroVGA an ideal solution for user interface in embedded applications.
Provides 80x25 color text mode (character) which is output rendered in standard SVGA 800x600@60Hz resolution
Very easy to use: works the same way as standard ANSI (or VT100) terminal
Easy connection to almost every microcontroller using only 2 wires (minimum, 4 recommended)
Free multi-platform text user interface library written in C is available here.
Host microcontroller requirements are really undemanding! All you need is UART, few kilobytes of code memory and at least 10 MIPS of computing power.
MicroVGA is not just microcontroller-to-VGA interface.
In addition to VGA output, MicroVGA can also display on your television (both American NTSC and European PAL systems are supported)
MicroVGA also provides PS/2 keyboard input.
It also provides secondary UART for single-UART MCUs, optional user I/O and a clock signal to minimize additional logic
MicroVGA uses industry standards wherever possible:
With our text user interface conio library you can develop feature-rich embedded user interface even on 8 bit microcontrollers. The library occupies as low as 1-2kB of code.
Watch video on right hand side for a demo showing application using conio library.
It is much cheaper to use MicroVGA instead of display modules and buttons or keyboards. On top of that it is more powerful!
You will get free multi-platform text user interface library.
MicroVGA saves a lot of energy. Unlike traditional graphics cards it only requires 150mA!
MicroVGA is produced using RoHS technology and contains no hazardous substances.
No animals were harmed during product development and testing ;-)
In addition to VGA output, the interface also provides NTSC/PAL signal output for television viewing and PS/2 keyboard input. This makes MicroVGA the ideal solution for user interface in embedded applications.
