I set the Z register to point to the playfield routine and set compare B to something higher than playfield starts at , but I start drawing a little later to center stuff. Circuitry in the TV would detect and decode these patterns for things like closed captions, auto setting the time, and in some high end tvs actually being able to display the name of the currently airing program. The logos are left pushed over a bit from the corners so they will still display on these old TVs that are cropping the This article on “PDF” format. With the forthcoming availability of AVR microcontrollers such as the Mega48, Mega88 and Mega officially supporting clock speeds of 20Mhz it is possible to achieve resolutions of 20 lines by characters. I have to recommend a Propeller chip if you want to do vga out, but there is a lot of elegance in this method.

The bottle there is a sign of my dyslexia.

This is why analog video had a program safe area. When the scan line is done it changes the interrupt information for timer compare B back to 7 cycles and points again to hsync atmel-at449bv512. At this point the timer also resets to 0 again.

These are fine but are little help to most hobbyists etc out there who wish to display text on a VGA or similar screen. Frequency of vertical synchronization: So how it works: Characteristics of the project: The problem which I have set myself is simple enough to enumerate.


The scan line information is pulled out of flash which is inserted into the source code from an include file that is generated from the Python script included in the zipfile below.

Atmel Driver Vga – instructionwhole

Overscan from the analog era comes from many reasons. Are we close to reinventing the keyboard for touchscreens? The chip is meant to run at a top speed of 20 MHz.

This gives me pretty nice timing of when a scan line is finished. After approximately two to three months of research, I present you the fruits of my labour!

At this point I turn on the hsync pin and do some calculations on my vertical scan since I have about 76 cycles here to play with. Halving atml-at49bv512 resolution to let you get away with some better timing and a few other things like that.

This differs from the SX version in that I used interrupts to control the timing.

We assume he chose that because he had a crystal on hand, because we think it would have been easier to use a The goal of the project: Also of use for doing this, Quinn Dunki has done it with a Atmega, running at 10 MHz instead of overclocking.


Certainly nothing simple a beginner could find useful. All using a 16 Mhz clock for the AVR. Notify me of new comments via email.

One of the nicest is this demo by Linus Aknesson: I then set up interrupts an interrupt at 7 cycles using the timer’s compare B. Here’s a picture atmel-at49bb512 the circuit and eeprom burner. Also, since this chip is 20MHz instead of 50MHz, some of the timings are not quite accurate. You can freely use materials of this project for educational and noncommercial purposes. I wonder what is going to happen in 10 years to the microcontroller and hardware real knowledge.

I set up 2 interrupts.
