VGA GPIO adapter for the Raspberry Pi goes open source

Gert Van Loo has just open-sourced the files for a new VGA adapter that plugs into the GPIO pins of the Raspberry Pi Model B+. You can find the source files on GitHub. The adapter, which was first covered on the RasPi.TV blog is not generally available to buy, so it’s hoped that someone out there will get together a group of people to buy them in bulk (single PCBs being a bit expensive). If you are interested in getting hold of one or more adapters, perhaps you could leave a comment on this blog post and we’ll see what we can do about production. It’s great that Gert has thought about surface-mounted and through-hole resistors – it means that it would be possible for an amateur to put one together.

If you’d like more information, you can read about the board over at the Raspberry Pi Foundation.
