    Best microcontroller for outputting pictures?

    Hello,

    I hope you are having a good day.

    I need to know what is the best microcontroller on the market which stores and sends pictures (not video) over VGA.

    It would need the typical I/O of a microcontroller (TX, RX, SPI & I2C) I guess it would really only have to have RX (serial receive).

    I want to send a byte of info or integer to the microcontroller and have it display a picture dependent upon what number I sent it. If it could send it the name of the picture that would be awesome!!!

    Thank you for your time.

    Any of these should do just fine... VGA? My gawd, do they even make VGA monitors anymore?

    ASRock > Products > Mini PC Series

    A PC is not a microcontroller.

    Really, you would know better than anyone, considering this is highly dependent on what your trying to achieve.
    Personally, I would probably use a PIC32, they're widely supported, surprisingly cheap, and (without knowing more) comfortably overkill for what you're doing.
    You might even be able to get away with using a PIC18, but again, this is dependent on things you haven't elaborated on.

    A while ago i used a SBC called Viper-Lite from Acrom to do the stuff what you mentioned. Although note this is aboard with PXA255 Intel 200MHz processor, but not a microcontroller. As mentioned before PIC would be the best option to be more cost effective if you prefer that or ARM would be your next options.
