FPGA VGA Project

Getting our projects to display results usually means connecting them to a computer via RS232 or using an LCD but with a bit of work you can use VGA. Have a look at this FPGA VGA Project for some pointers.

“VGA is a very friendly protocol to use with FPGA’s and CPLD’s and because of this we can easily build video controllers with basic PLDs. The VGA protocol itsself is slow, running around the 20-30 MHz range depending on the resolution chosen, meaning that we can even breadboard or wire-wrap prototype designs! “
