Designed to enable the use of VGA monitors with older computers, the Microbee VGA video converter allows for analogue or digital inputs. The digital mode converts true CGA digital input (RGB + Intensity) and provides the proper CGA color map. This is the mode that is used by the Microbee Premium, Premium Plus & 256TC models, along with regular IBM PCs (CGA) and numerous other computers. Also included is a jumper C128FIX to adapt the normal CGA color set to match the Commodore 128s 80 column mode color set (dark yellow of the CGA set is brown in the C128s color set). The analogue mode allows for use with other computers that have true analogue outputs, such as the Commodore Amiga.
