Overview

Summary

The plan is to display synchronized, low-res graphics to multiple VGA displays simultaneously. Specifically, we have a couple dozen surplus VGA displays at the Hive, and I'd like to turn them into a low cost video wall of some kind. Cheapest hardware possible is the goal.

At the moment I'm just collecting links to useful resources.

Project Needs / Factors

Just off the top of my head..

  • Learn something new - Propeller chip, FPGA, VHDL, Verilog, VGA interfaces, low level multidrop serial networks, etc
  • Reuse of existing libraries, code, designs
  • Cheapest circuit possible to drive a VGA display
