A older B/W [] video card

This is an 8 bit B/W monitor card. Would run MDA monitors back in 1983. -- this one includes a printer (parallel) port. The total length is not shown. These old cards were beatiful, that is, aesthetically so, consisting of copper lines on the natural phenol board color.

  • The end connections, top to bottom:

    The connector strip at the bottom indicate that this is an 8 bit (ISA) card.

    There are no jumpers, no settings. Ah, the good old days.

    MDA monitors were usually green on black, with excellent readability, not equalled by CGA (IBM's first "graphics" color monitor) or EGA. Wouldn't do graphics. The pins could be wired to operated any TV monitor.
