eetimes article about the creation of F18A

Recommended Posts

The idea of having even 2 VDPs, so some sprints are under a tile-plane, and some are above would have been and interesting differentiator in the home computer space. Reading the datasheets for TI stuff, it always seems like a home computer is pretty far away from 'first principles' of the design. But the VDP is the one chip that clearly had a home computer display as primary objectives. Although the way they describe the genlock application, (probably cause of the increased cost) starts to sound like academic applications.
