VGADuino-II : The New 256 Color Graphic Shield for Arduino

Arduino is pretty much famous for the numerous shields it has. These plug-and-play shields make our life a lot easier while working on some complicated projects. Among all other shields, graphic shields are getting more and more popular. A graphic shield lets you show text, numbers,...

TFoC: FPGA & Forth = VGA

Here is a fun project, created from start to finish by Matthias Koch: In itself, this is no big deal. The generated pattern is a 16x16 expanded pixel image, and 640x480 displays are pretty basic by now - although they’re fine for presenting text-mode information and retro...

F1200 Low-noise Digital IF VGA with FlatNoise

The F1200 of an IDT is a digitally controlled intermediate frequency differential variable gain amplifier that adjusts the gain either dynamically or as a one-time channel gain setting. The device has extremely low noise figure over the entire gain control range. It is packaged in...

ATiny does 170×240 VGA with 8 Colors

AtomicZombie @ avrfreaks.net used an ATtiny85 ATMEL microcontroller to produce a 170x240 VGA signal and also send audio along with video. The original plan was to just bit bang some mono VGA and do up a Pong or Tetris game, but things went MUCH MUCH further than I ever thought...

HCS08 VGA Output

This reference design is a simple VGA signal generation that uses the Freescale’s MC9S08SH16VTJR, which is an 8-bit microcontroller that has Central Processor Unit (CPU) speed of 40MHz with a maximum bus frequency of 20MHz. It has an internal clock source module containing a...
