Amazing video upgrade for the Atari XE line of 8-bit computers.
VBXE project was started in 2005 by Tomasz Piórek (Electron/TQA), and the first public announcement was made in March of 2006. Since that time, the VBXE project has been improved by Candle’o’Sin – Video DAC has been changed, microcontroller responsible for FPGA core management functions was swapped from PIC to ATMega48. Recently, new life was pumped into the project – another VideoDac change, few minor changes. The newest version – 2.1 – is 100% compatible with its ancestors, is made on automatic assembly lines, and is 100% ROHS and environment friendly.
