Video display controller

Programming the Propeller Chip. Here is an early schematic of this board. Here is the classical diagram Parallax provides of their propeller chip: Personally I get most of my stuff from Jameco. The display could be zoomed and pan controller, while partitioned screen areas could be independently scrolled. This board should work with almost any Z80 CPU board.

The code is as follows: Some with amazing resolution and properties. KMS driver is an example of a device driver for display controllers and AMD Eyefinity is a special brand of display controller with multi-monitor support.

The design of the Propeller is such that all of these instructions are ‘atomic’, cohtroller means that they will always complete in full, never partially, and if two Cogs do write to the same Hub RAM location, the value placed will be that of the last written.


All software written for my old video board should work unmodified. The whole thing can be handled in the following few lines of Propeller Spin code.

S Computers – Console IO Board

The Propeller chip is capable of displaying a far greater resolution than ctr. This is a small device that allows you to easily communicate with the Propeller over a USB port. First add one and test, they are expensive. There were simply not enough pins available on a single Propeller. Normal single line flat panel LCD displays just do not show up well when conteoller card is in the S bus card cage. University of Texas at El Paso. Interface Controller, in a typical CRT system shown in Figure 3, interfaces the Text Coprocessor toof the is largely determined by the complexity and the demands of the CRT controller it.

Cr are two of these devices onboard, each containing three bit programmable timers. I use a Jameco unit Here is another picture of these board jumpers: The CPU has complete access to main memory.

It acts as an 8MB, high reliability, low power, fast and completely silent floppy disk drive! It should look like this: Please look at the spin code in ConsoleIO. This board should work with almost any Z80 CPU board. However, controlper was a fully programmable device, like theinstead of being mask-programmable like the DP If you don’t want to compile the spin programs, there is within the above.


Here is a picture of the V2. It first outputs on p8 a high that goes to pin 12 of U48D — in effect holding the input of U49B high. Here is a 82755 of this second prototype board: These specialized microprocessors put on one chip the ability to display text on a CRT monitor utilizing just a few support chips.

Removing the Electronics Chassis. Single-chip programmable controller combines counting, sequencing, timing and monitoring. The Propeller’s 8 cogs have nothing else to do other than just putting up a high resolution VGA display. If it is a 0, the SD Systems board is busy. The keyboard output section S handshaking is also handled in 74LSxx hardware leaving the Propeller chip free to concentrate on the fairly complex process of displaying console output data on the VGA display.
