Title

Video Game Console Design

Format

SOECS Senior Project Demonstration

Abstract/Artist Statement

The Video Game Console design project was created to demonstrate how much technology has enhanced design productivity. Using modern design techniques and tools a game console capable of running 1980 s and 1990 s era video games can be created by two students rather than huge design teams and for minimal money compared to millions for the custom chips used then. In addition improved software techniques and tools allow game developers to write games faster. This is demonstrated through a simple easy to use and efficient application programming interface. The project implements video sound and input using modern microcontrollers and field programmable gate arrays.
