5M160nano is an evaluation board equipped with 5M160 of Intel MAX V series CPLD. This is a very convenient CPLD board that allows you to experiment by sticking into a breadboard.
Add a circuit to the outside
To generate the video signal,
- 14.31818MHz clock
- 8bit D/A with ladder resistance
- Video amplifier
The above is added to the 5M160 nano board.
The USB Blaster (1-TB1) from Terasic is used for the writing machine.
There is also a cheap USB Blaster made in China,
However, installing this driver normally causes Windows to crash, so you need to do the following:
Create a program
I wrote a program to generate a color bar. I use about 60% of the size of the CPLD.
It’s on the monitor!
It’s not exactly NTSC, but it’s roughly a video signal.
When I plugged the output of the video amplifier into the monitor, the color bar showed up!
It’s interesting that NTSC is able to transmit images on a single wire.
