The main goal of this project is to add a video output to my 6502 homebrew computer. After following Ben Eater's video series on Youtube on how to make a 6502 computer on a breadboard, I felt like adding a more useful output than the 16x2 LCD.

I played a little with the TMS9918A VDP but was not pleased with reliability of the old chips I could find. This was a good opportunity to learn more about FPGA. I have the Colorlight i5 lying around and think this could be a good candidate for a FPGA-based VDP.

First I'll use a VGA output but, as the dev board has an HDMI connector, I'll try to use it (keeping it at 640x480/60Hz).
