A bit of a project preview for Basys3

Recommended Posts

Hi!

I'm really excited about a project I'm working on - it nearly realizes a childhood dream of building a computer for real-time exploring of Mandelbrot Fractals.(yes, sad but true - I did calculate fractals on a VIC20)

If you have a Basys3, have a look and tell me what you think.

Resource usage is pretty good - nearly gobbled them all!

I'm still polishing it before I put the source on my Wiki, but it features a 1560 stage, 250MHz pipeline to calculate each pixel on the fly - works out to 33 billion 17x17 multiplications per second, approximately half the FPGA's rated peak performance.
