The dream FPGA project for me is to make a game console.
That is, having a soft CPU and sprite and tile engine, similar to the NES or Gameboy.
The hardware can be relatively simple and breadboard friendly to begin with:
The TinyFPGA-BX + an LCD screen + some buttons + maybe a headphone amp for the audio.
I stated to play with this LCD screen but I don’t have the time nor the knowledge to do everything.
My area of expertise would be the software drivers and library, maybe hardware design if we want to make a proper board at some point.
If you are interested, let’s talk here.
