As nice as Java graphics are, I wanted to learn to code graphics in a language that was a little more solid and made me feel a little more in control. So, setting out with the knowledge of C I'd picked up over the past few years, I went about learning C++ and graphics.

NES Emulator (First attempt)

Submitted by Logan Smyth on Tue, 12/30/2008 - 00:00

I'd wanted to attempt an emulator forever, and at the beginning of the Fall 2008 semester, I was sitting at home, and realized that it would be a lot of fun to try and implement it in hardware. At the time, I was taking Digital System Design so had access to an FPGA board, the TerASIC DE1.

Being totally new to VHDL and hardware dev, I decided to start with the lowest end hardware I could think of, which was obviously the Nintendo Entertainment System. After a ton of research, I get a handle on a the basic hardware layout of the device.
