GBSVGA Genie V2.0 PRE-ORDERBoards and components for the pre-order will be ordered no sooner than 6/1/2020.Shipping delays may be experienced from board manufacturer and local and international postal services due to COVID-19 outbreak.
GBSVGA Genie 2.0 integrates a LM1881 sync seperator to clean both the horizonal sync line. This board then connects to a GBS8200 Video Convert Converter board which will convert the 15kHz RGB signal to a standard VGA signal. The GBSVGA Genie V2.0 also has been interfaced to use the 'gbscontrol' external firmware which is programmed into a ESP8266 WEMOS D1 Mini module which allows a smartphone to configure the display paramenters.
The unit has an audio output that can connect to any PC type speakers with a 3.5mm audio jack.
This unit can work with a Geneve 9640 or any other unit that supports 15kHz signals such as the EVPC and AVPC cards, just needs the appropriate cable.
If used with the Geneve then I recommend to purchase my Geneve Video to DB9 adapter. This will allow you to use a straight through DB9 Male to Female cable. And no need to solder any DIN connectors.https://shift838.fwscart.com/Geneve_Video_2_DB9_Converter/p5569983_20363490.aspxThe GBS8200, Video Adapter, Video Cable, 3D case(Black with Silver buttons only) and Power Supply for GBS8200 is sold seperately (can be included in order - see options!)
