Hello world

Postby Torlus » Mon Sep 06, 2010 8:52 pm

Hi there,
I'm a software engineer, but since 2003 I've been interested in hardware design. I've done some projects using either MCUs or FPGAs, see my website http://torlus.com/ for more information.
My latest project is the cloning of the SEGA Megadrive/Genesis in a FPGA, see this video : ilzKiW21T9Y
I plan to see if I could use XMOS chips for that kind of projects... It seems that it would shorten the development time (and pain :mrgreen: ) compared to a "pure" FPGA design.

Hi there! Welcome to XCore. Great video you posted there! You may be interested in what one of our project of the month winners has been working on:

A Sega Genesis/Megadrive emu would be fun. Especially if it includes 32X functionality! :)

And getting it going on XCore would be easier and cheaper than putting the FPGA logistical train together. ;)
