The board can replace all functions of a VIC-II chip, including video output, light pen interrupts, and CPU clock source. There are three PCB designs available, ranging from $30 to $80 in cost. Depending on the board design, various video output options are available, such as DVI, analog RGB, and Luma/Chroma. The board can be configured to support different video options.
