Converts from a Mini-DisplayPort (DP++) source device to a VGA female socket, for connection to a VGA Monitor, TV or Projector (one way only). Supports Thunderbolt source devices.
VGA signals up to 1920x1200 including 1080p Full HD are supported from almost all modern Mini-DisplayPort source devices, including Laptops, Personal Computers and even Thunderbolt-ready Macbooks and other Apple computers. DisplayPort does all the work with the DP++ 'Dual Mode' hardware, leaving this passive adapter to simply change the socket types for you. That makes it compact, portable and easy to use.
Check your manual or look for the D++ logo on your source device to make sure your equipment has the ability to give you VGA compliance. Then, simply plug it into your Mini-DisplayPort source device, and connect up the display with your existing VGA cable. Both 14-pin and 15-pin VGA cables are compatible, but if you need a spare we stock a range of VGA cable lengths.
DisplayPort Compatibility Note
DisplayPort (DP) adapters require a DP output which is DP++ (Dual Mode) compatible. When a DisplayPort to VGA adapter is connected to a DP++ (Dual-Mode) output, the output device senses the presence of the adaptor and performs an active signal conversion from DisplayPort to VGA. This adaptor is not bi-directional, and does not convert VGA to DisplayPort.Why shop with Cable Chick
