Welcome to week three of the Papilio Introduction Series. This week we are covering one of the most exciting features of the Papilio – VGA output with the ZPUino Soft Processor.
“Did you know that with the raw power of the Papilio’s FPGA, the ZPUino, and a VGA Wing you can write sketches with VGA output? You can use VGA output to write text, boxes, virtual LCD’s, menus, and even games. This article will get you started with using VGA on the Papilio. “
If you’ve picked up the Arcade MegaWing for $84.99 from Seeed Studio or already have a 3-bit VGA Wing then you can get started right away with making your own custom VGA graphics using a simple VGA library.
If you don’t have an Arcade MegaWing yet don’t worry we have you covered:
Or even better, it’s completely Open Source so grab the EAGLE files and build one for yourself!
