History

The Apple IIGS VGA Adapter was created by Jon Christopher Co and John Valdezco of Manila Gear in June of 2016.


John had been using the Gonbes GBS-8800 frequency upscaler board with a VGA monitor on his newly acquired Apple IIGS. John wasn't happy with the video output and the clutter associated with having an extra board and power supply for the Gonbes board. So John and Jon set about finding a simpler, better video solution! The result of their research efforts was the VGA Adapter.

Different Versions of the Apple IIGS VGA Adapter

The basic design has remained unchanged, with just a few tweaks here and there.
