Hi Guys, I recieved this card in a job lot and can't find much info about it. It Appears to be a VGA Butterfly 16 by Nel Electronics. Anyone shed some light on this card?

Looks like some Variant of the Paradise Chipset

VLSI VL82C037 = Oak OTI-037

In short: nothing special, just yet another 256KB VGA, also supports CGA/Hercules compatibility modes, and probably 800x600 in 16 colors.

The only interesting thing about this card is... it's a VLSI.
While cards with Oak chips are plentiful, those branded by VLSI are uncommon.
