DGN and Gameboy Update

This is something I recorded with Stephen Kraig (Co-host of the MacroFab Engineering Podcast) back in September 2016. We never made it public till now! Drunken Gaming Night! It is silly and I have no idea where Stephen and I will take the channel but it is fun to do.

Things to finish on the Gameboy VGA Design

  • Pick a VGA connector
  • 3.3V TTL -> Analog VGA signal
    • Resistor ladder seems to be the best way to do this
    • Current development board uses 4bit VGA with 500Ω, 1kΩ, 2kΩ, and 4kΩ resistors
  • Serial Terminal
    • FT230X -> USB
  • Designing a flat flex cable
    • Solder one end to the FPGA PCB
    • One end fits into the FCC connector on the Gameboy
