Hi @Riteshkakkar,

Do you take a look at the video that Dan linked to in this post here? It gives a good overview on what an FPGA is set up to do and how it is generally designed (and no, it does not inherently have registers in the same way a microcontroller does).

Are you referring to a CRT TV? In theory you can connect it, though you would need an adapter cable of some kind and would also need to write your own custom code to interface with it; this thread describes a little bit of what you might need, though in the grand scheme of things it's probably not a great thing to pursue since the end result (super low resolution) likely won't be worth it.

Thanks,
JColvin

A FPGA is NOT a computer,orĀ  a microprocessor, or a microcontroller, or a CPU. Therefore, it can not be programmed like a computer. At its basic level it is a lot of unconnected digital logic gates and flip flops. There are also built-in circuits that will connect the gates and flip flops. A Hardware Description Language (HDL) such as VHDL or Verilog is used to describe the the desired digital result. To use a FPGA you _must_ understand Digital Logic Design. Again, this is different from programming a computer! A FPGA can be used to create just about any digital hardware you can imagine (within limits).
