Can anyone recommend a VGA adapter

Unread postby avi_m » Wed Apr 04, 2018 12:46 am

I need to connect XU3 to VGA screen and had to use an adapter, currecntly my only way is using 2 adapters VGA->HDMI + HDMI-> micro HDMI , this setup causing the display to get blank every once in a while.
I am looking for some perfectly working adapter (for either DP or micro HDMI) that works natively like connecting an HDMI monitor.

Any recommendation ?

A 3~4 years ago, we tested a micro-HDMI to VGA adapter from eBay.
But it didn't work at all due to some missing ground shield path.
Sorry for not giving you a good recommendation.

There are some adapters that are suitable for RPI, would those work well with XU3 ?

It will work probably.
If it doesn't work, you need to add an additional ground path something like this.

I have some adapter which behave strangely.
When connected to a laptop it works perfectly, but when I connect it to XU3 device it works for 1-5 minutes (randomally) and then the screen goes blank.
Any idea what could be related ?

I am using this one:
https://www.ebay.de/itm/New-1080P-HDMI- ... 1687507582
on many boards and it works fine. Can't tell for XU3 since I don't have it.

I have three hdmi-to-vga adapters and confirmed they work well with XU4.
I bought them at korean online sites.
I've tried to find them on eBay site to share the link but there is not on eBay site. :(
Just for your information, I shared the brand name here.

- NEXI : NX-HDMI TO VGA

I found a good DP to VGA adapter.
What are the steps to enable the DP on XU3 ?

It's eDP and it only works with a DP capable monitor. No DP adapters work with it, unfortunately.
