What's taking so damn long? That's a good question. Turns out just accurately modeling a video state counter in Verilog is much harder than I'd thought. If you know anything about how the horizontal and vertical video states work, you know it's not as simple as "count from 0 to the max horizontal or vertical… Continue reading Status Report

0111 – Missing Parts

As I slowly near completion of my timing circuit board, I've been adding components to their sockets and testing the different signals they produce. The basic signals (14MHz, 7MHz, 3.5MHz, etc.) seem to be clocking correctly. Having the quartz oscillator socketed allows me to remove it and replace it with a simple 1kHz 555 timer-based… Continue reading 0111 – Missing Parts
