Wireless "Cows & Bulls" Game

Submitted by Logan Smyth on Thu, 12/10/2009 - 00:00

For the final project of Microprocessor Systems, my team and I designed and implemented a game running on McGill's custom development boards. Using the onboard MSP430 and CPLD and our custom drivers for all of the hardware, a wireless transciever, the CC2500, a PS2 keyboard and a 2x24 LCD display, we designed a Cows & Bulls game that would run wirelessly between two boards.

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.
