Ben Eater: World's Worst Video Card

Build a VGA Video Card

By Ben Eater

Let's build a video card! In these videos, Ben will talk about how VGA signals work and build a circuit that provides the correct timing of sync signals, so a monitor will recognize the signal and display an image stored on an EEPROM. If you’re interested in building your own World's Worst Video Card the kit includes all the components used in Ben's video series.
