The RGBtoHDMI interface converts the “digital” RGB video signal from vintage computers like the BBC Micro or PC MDA/CGA/EGA to HDMI or DVI compatible with most modern TVs/Monitors. It uses a Raspberry Pi Zero (not provided) and specially designed firmware to correctly sample each of the supported video modes to give a pixel-perfect rendition. The HDMI output is locked to the input so there are no frame drops, repeats or tears and it also has low lag of around 4 milliseconds.

The Pi Zero Hat provided here is the 12-bit board designed by David Banks (hoglet67) with source available at https://github.com/hoglet67/RGBtoHDMI, which is assembled and programmed with the RGB CPLD code designed for PC (MDA/CGA/EGA) capture.

It is included with a 12-pin IDC connector to 9-pin D-Sub cable, for picking up RGB/EGA/CGA signals from many PC and PC compatible systems. If you have the parts, you can easily make more other cables as detailed on the Cables page on the RGB2HDMI wiki. We also provide some loose pin headers in case you wanted to enable the reset functionality of the RGB2HDMI board.

You will need to provide a Raspberry Pi Zero (versions 1.3, W and 2W are supported), an SD card containing the latest RGB2HDMI software, and a mini-HDMI cable/adapter to connect the Pi Zero to your display. You can also follow the Quick Start Guide on the wiki to get started.
