MNT VA2000, an Amiga 2000/3000/4000 Graphics Card
VA2000 was MNT's first graphics card for the Zorro bus implemented as open source gateware for a Spartan-6 FPGA. It is superseded by MNT ZZ9000.
The VA2000 is a FPGA based graphics card for Amiga 2000/3000/4000 computers featuring high resolutions and color depth over DVI-D. It has a hacker-friendly expansion header for upgrades and custom mods and features a slot for MicroSD cards that can be mounted in AmigaOS.
The professional quality production version is a collaboration of MNT and Scarab Hardware, makers of the miniSpartan 6+.
