Interested in playing with the open-source Beagleboard, but don’t have a DVI-capable monitor to use it with? Well, Linus Ã…kesson has a decidedly low-tech hack to add a VGA output to the beagleboard, which consists of only a few resistor ladder DACs, a couple level shifting transistors, and some carefully coded timing values to make the LCD header output VGA-compatible signals. Great work!
