QuickVGA+ is one of our most powerful Quickstart add-on modules yet, turning your Quickstart into a full-fledged microcomputer. QuickVGA+ provides immediate access to all of the exciting abilities of the Propeller in one simple package. Use your Quickstart as a terminal, retro gaming console, develop programs in several languages that run on the Propeller itself, or just experiment with the advanced features at your disposal.


  • VGA Video Output.
  • PS2 Keyboard or mouse input
  • Right & Left Stereo Audio Ouput.
  • Wii Game Controller Port.
  • Optional microSD Module connection.
  • Optional IR connection.
  • Edge connections to V3/Vss & P12-P14.
