The μVGA-III module is a compact and cost effective standalone VGA graphics engine powered by the PICASO graphics processor. It can provide a QVGA/VGA/WVGA graphics solution to any embedded project with its powerful graphics, text, image and animation capabilities, along with countless more features built inside the module.

The μVGA-III features a remote VGA connector, which is able to be disconnected from the PCB. The remote VGA connector enables flexible mounting and connection options when using the μVGA-III. A 30 way header is provided on the rear of the PCB, which is left unpopulated from the factory, however the header is provided with the module. This can be soldered by the user if required, to gain additional IO and comms if required. Wires can also be soldered directly to the PCB if desired. Features:
