Analog Volvo D2-55C to SeatalkNG, Seatalk or NMEA0183

Analog Volvo Penta data from D2-55C to SeatalkNG, Seatalk or NMEA0183?

My situation:
My VP D2-55C was the last (C) in this series not having EVC, but connected to its display by an analog cable. Volvo does support a Y-cable (for a dual wheel position).

The (next) VP D2-55D was the first EVC motor of VP which digitally connects to its displays and can digitally connect to a.o. SeatalkNG and display its data on e.g a C70. It needs a Y-split cable of VP and a connect cable and ECI-100 bridge from Raymarine.

Answer from VP: Indeed, this can be done as of the D-version.
This fine if you own one but mine is C-version.

Now, I also realize that Motor data pages exits already longer on MFD's so I believe that some must have invented an analog-to-digital interface.
Maybe not VP, maybe not Raymarine, but fast motor cruising manufacturers?
I do not know.

Question:
Does anyone own, has seen, knows off, knows how to build an analog-digital bridge, convertor or interface.
Does not matter now whether this is SeatalkNG, Seatalk or NMEA (this will only matter if there are multiple solutions provided).

I am wondering why I cannot find anything on the web. Must be invented before.

So, If it does exits for Yanmar its need to be invented for VP as well over 10 years ago! Thanks.

Need to study this. I now find more analog to digital converters. Thanks.

All very expensive: Y cable over 220 and convertor, programmer 500-600.
Still like to learn of more alternatives, while also for attractive offerings.

I just did something similar on my old analog diesels. I have several B&G MFD displays that have NMEA 2000 inputs and can be used as virtual gauge systems. I bought the ALBA COMBI digitizer. It can read your analog gauge outputs, calibrate them and then produce a bunch of NMEA2K outputs. Very flexible. Look on ebay, there was a dealer in Spain selling new units for much less than they are in the states and it included free air shipping. I've bought two units from them and both times they showed up THREE DAYS later even though they travelled from Spain to Seattle! See link below
