The VGA DIP allows C.H.I.P. to connect to a monitor via a standard 15-pin VGA cable at a maximum output resolution of 1600 by 900 at 60 Hz. Unlike the 16:9 ratio of HDMI, the VGA DIP usually outputs in a 4:3 aspect ratio.

  • Maximum Resolution: 1600 x 900 at 60Hz
  • 4:3 Aspect Ratio
  • RGB breakouts - RGB breakouts can be found at the edge of the VGA connector on the left side. These are available if you ever want to add cool effects, or to “bend” your VGA DIP
  • Trim-pot breakouts (RGB) - There are three footprints for1 0K trimpots. These can be installed with only a few solder joints, and can create a really awesome visual effects like saturating colors.
  • U14 breakouts - The U14 header breakout is directly to the left of U14. This is important if you would like to access FEL, UART, XIO, CSID, audio, etc. The name of each pin is labeled above the corresponding pad.
  • JST connector breakout - A JST connector footprint is available to be populated on VGA DIP. Because the VGA connector is really close to the existing JST battery connector, it makes it difficult to plug/unplug with the VGA DIP installed. Note: DO NOT INSTALL TWO BATTERIES INTO C.H.I.P. THIS WILL DAMAGE YOUR C.H.I.P.
  • Prototyping area - There is “Proto board” on the PCB itself. This is convenient if you would like to add a small circuit to your VGA DIP, without having to add another board.
  • VGA connector - This is a standard female DB-15 VGA connector to carry the video signal to a VGA monitor.
  • Power switch - A Power switch has been added to the VGA DIP. It is close to impossible to access the Power On Switch on C.H.I.P with the VGA DIP installed, so we added a second Power On Switch. This is located on the right side of the PCB, and is accompanied by a “Power On” symbol.
  • C.H.I.P. with C.H.I.P. OS 1.1 with Debian 4.4 kernel
  • VGA display
  • 15-pin VGA cable (we recommend a cable with Ferrite beads)
  • 2A+ power adapter and micro USB cable
