This is my second Ben Eater project. In this video series, Ben talks about how VGA signals work and walks us through building a circuit that provides the correct timing of sync signals so that a monitor recognizes the signal and displays an image stored on an EEPROM.
|22 AWG Solid Tinned-Copper Hook-Up Wire|
|10MHz full can crystal oscillator||1|
|74LS00 (Quad NAND gate)||3|
|74LS04 (Hex inverter)||4|
|74LS30 (8-input NAND gate)||8|
|74LS161 (4-bit synchronous binary counter)||6|
|DE15 Female VGA breakout connector||1|
You will also need a monitor with VGA input, an EEPROM programmer like the XGecu TL866II Plus, an oscilloscope and a function generator.
This video card displays an image of 100 x 75 pixels with 64 (indexed) colors.
