Mandelbrot on my new Genesys2

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

As a proud new owner of a Digilent Genesys 2 board hereby a video of the Mandelbrot demo running on my board!

I've had to make some very small changes to the design to disable the external Joystick, as I don't own a PMOD Joystick and Rotary Encoder (yet).

My last experience with programmable logic was 22 years ago with a Lattice 20V8 GAL so I've made a quantum leap B)

Greetings, Iwan

Wow!  That is awesome!

May I assume that you are recalculating the whole output multiple times a second to maintain that wonderful video display?  Or did you precalculate it and fill a memory with it from which you then drew the display?

Still, either way, it's really cool.

Thanks for posting,

Dan

Hi Dan,

I'm not the developer of this demo but Hamster is, search for "Fractals on Genesys2" for a post from the original author.

Hi Iwan!

That is a far better video than I can make with my cell phone. Hope you don't mind if I share it on Twitter.

@Dan - yes, every pixel is calculated on the fly, requiring 255 complex FMACs per pixel,and some other stuff (or about 192,000,000,000 operations per second).
