Gameduino Library Released for DesignLab.
In the last update I set a goal to release one library a week for DesignLab. Last week went smoothly and I was able to get Gameduino up and running and turned into a nice library for DesignLab.
Gameduino is a really great Open Source FPGA project put together by James Bowman. It allows you to add graphics and audio to your projects using a nicely documented VGA adapter and Arduino libraries to program it. Take a look at the project page to learn more.
This DesignLab library turns the Gameduino project into an easy to use DesignLab chip that you can drop into any of your Papilio DUO projects to get instant VGA output.
Here are some images of the library:
Unfortunately there is not much to report yet. Seeed Studio sent boards for me to troubleshoot last Friday but what we didn't take into account is how crazy it is to ship anything out of China at Christmas time... What would normally take three days to ship via DHL has dragged out to over a week. The good news is that according to the DHL website it is out for delivery today, the bad news is that it has really delayed the entire troubleshooting process. Hopefully I will have some good news for the next update.
