VT100 BeagleBone Mod

Brendan Powers writes, “I’ve recently finished my DEC VT100 BeagleBone mod project. You can find the details, including schematic and board files here.” He’s designed an STP add-on board for the VT100 series terminals that allows the use of an internal BeageBone instead of an external serial connected computer.

  1. I don’t have a VT100. Not many people do. If you hacked an LCD monitor to drive a Beaglebone, threw in a USB keyboard, I’d be interested.

    Throw in an RS-232 +/- 12V compatible interface board, and you’d have a winner. Heck, you could probably fit all that in an old laptop case.

  2. The new BeagleBone black has an HDMI port, so connecting it to an LCD is pretty simple. I believe there was an LVDS adapter as well, if you’d prefer to drive the LCD directly.
