I have EGA graphics card on some old computer and broken monitor. I have to plugin on some new VGA monitor for example TFT.

Does anybody know how to convert video signal from EGA to VGA standard?

ega vga converter

as i recall EGA was 640x350 .so to convert to VGA 640x480 ..you need quite a lot of electronics. But what still puzzles me Why .? why ? What is so valuable in your OLD ega board that deserves to go through that pain .
What can be achieved with such an ackward old standard with only 16 colors?

ega converter

I think you ­would use the KIT converter: AL250, AL128 of Averlogic or DIDO of AURORA Mutilmedia.
If you are success, can you rewrite for me please?
