The Gizmo Board: A compact (4″x4″) development board for embedded innovators and hobbyists. Powered by the AMD Embedded G-Series APU. Two custom card edge connectors (one high speed, one low speed) provide ready access to special features including SATA, USB, Display Port, PCIe, SPI, I2C, GPIO, PWM, ADC Input, DAC Output, Reset, and Counter. The board also includes JTAG header, VGA video output, Audio input/output, Ethernet, and USB ports.
The Explorer Board: A companion board for Gizmo, the Explorer expansion I/O board allows for even greater experimentation and exploration opportunities. This two-layer board connects to Gizmo via the low-speed connector and provides an alpha-numeric keypad, a micro-display, and a sea of holes for prototyping and customization.
Sage SmartProbe® JTAG Development Tool: An automated, configurable plugin development tool for embedded designs, the SmartProbe® enables full development and debug capabilities including access to all registers and memory, USB and Ethernet support, remote access, virtual port, reset vector control, field updatable firmware, and more. The kit includes the SmartProbe® hardware and 20 hours of trial time use.
Sage EDK Graphical Interface: A 30-day trial license for the Sage EDK, an intuitive graphical interface that streamlines development and debug. With the Sage EDK integrated development environment (IDE) you’ll be able to efficiently build, inspect and debug the software under development. Features include smart editor, cross-compile toolchain integration, automated image transfer, symbolic software debug, processor debug support, and more.
Pre-installed SageBIOS™ on Gizmo: The Gizmo board comes pre-installed with SageBIOS™, a distribution of open source coreboot®. Select from several boot options, including a PC behavior option and an Explorer board option, among others.
Installation DVD: With instructions for installing the Sage EDK. Also includes the Gizmo Explorer Kit user guide.
Quick Start Guide: A to-the-point guide to get you up and running quickly.
Power Supply: A universal power supply for the Gizmo board, with a U.S.-standard cord.
Ethernet & USB Cables: One of each, for use with the Sage SmartProbe®. The USB cable lets you connect the SmartProbe® to your PC. The Ethernet cable enables you to develop a system remotely from anywhere in the world.
We are working with an online vendor who will soon handle Gizmo Explorer Kit purchases. Until then, please order your development kit by contacting us at orders@gizmosphere.org

More correctly known as a 15-pin D-sub RGB video connector, commonly referred to as a "VGA connector" because it was first used on ye olden VGA graphics cards (though some VGA cards used the earlier 9-pin connector). Of course, nobody uses VGA cards any more, but the connector is still the most widely supported today, which is probably why it was chosen over DVI or HDMI.

In fact, I picked up 4 used LCD monitors for $60, and none of them had DVI (and they're not that old). All VGA inputs.

Or they could have gone with DVI-I which would have worked with DVI and HDMI as well as stuff people are pulling from dumpsters (I kid, I know there are a lot of embedded displays that are still analog RGB but still, why not move things forward?).

There's a reason they're only $60. VGA gives an abysmal picture on LCDs compared to a decent digital connection.

How is this "embedded"?

It has a bios, undocumented architecture and proprietary drivers. You can't even write something from scratch with that.
Yes the board is cheap, but a noname android tablet is too.

The main problem is you have to pay extra for the IDE.

Yes, I wasn't expecting them to be as beautiful as one of those 27" Korean IPS 2560x1440 monitors.

All I wanted to point out was that the VGA connector is alive and well when it comes to cheap LCDs.
