EECS150 Fall 2007 Checkpoint 2 UNIVERSITY OF CALIFORNIA AT BERKELEY COLLEGE OF ENGINEERING DEPARTMENT OF ELECTRICAL ENGINEERING AND COMPUTER SCIENCE Checkpoint 2 Video Encoder and Basic User Interface 1 0 Motivation The goal of this semester s project is to build an interactive audio conferencing system In order to do that you will need to develop modules that allow us to not only see but also interact with the conferencing system beyond the LEDs and buttons available on the FPGA In this checkpoint you will build the modules that determine the look and feel of the project It is divided into three milestones 1 A video encoder module that uses the NTSC TV standard to communicate with the LCD monitors hooked up to each station 2 A video display module that determines the video data to be read by the video encoder with the ability to display ASCII text 3 A user interface module that uses button presses from a Nintendo 64 game controller to interact with the video display module Keep in mind that you will be using these modules in future checkpoints so be sure to design your Verilog ahead of time comment you code and test everything thoroughly Because you will be keeping and relying on this code for months it will actually save you many stressful hours to ensure it works well now rather than when you are about to finish the project Many of you will be at least reasonably familiar with video as it is used on computer systems with standard VGA or DVI interfaces complicated video cards and high resolution data grade CRT or LCD monitors In this checkpoint you will be introduced to the far older and more universal world of broadcast video You will be working with NTSC standard video as used in the U S broadcast TV industry and in fact on your TV at home NTSC is a reasonably simple standard which is widely used and readily available But one of the primary reasons to use it is that despite advances such as DVI and HDTV the video standards we will be using which have survived
