TECH 101: VGA (Video Graphics Array)
VGA plays an important role in the evolution of hardware and display ports. VGA resolutions have advanced over the last 30 years, however, as today's modern technologies offer digital connectivity, the VGA analog technology has become antiquated for computer, projector, and TV manufacturers. A standard VGA connection has 15 pins and is shaped like a trapezoid. It is the standard monitor or display interface used in most PCs. Therefore, if a 🖥️ monitor is VGA-compatible, it should work with most new computers. The VGA standard was originally developed by IBM in 1987 and allowed for a display resolution of 640x480 pixels. Since then, many revisions of the standard have been introduced. The most common is Super VGA (SVGA), which allows for resolutions greater than 640x480, such as 800x600 or 1024x768.
