DVI-A (DVI-Analog) is an analog technology that is most commonly used in the PC world to connect Analog video cards to Analog monitors. Since DVI-A and SVGA are both analog signal types, both are easily converted from one to the other which makes it easy to find many inexpensive adapters and cables to convert SVGA to DVI-A or DVI-A to SVGA. DVI-A can easily be identified by the 4 pins surrounding the longest pin on the connector.
