VGA controller at DE2-115 and DE4

Hello, 

 

in my project I need to use VGA output with NIOS. 

There is a reference desing at altera website "vga controller and nios ii processor reference design (http://www.altera.com/support/refdesigns/sys-sol/computing/ref-niosii-vga.html)". But this example only for Cyclone II and Stratix II. 

 

I need to implement VGA output at Terasic test boards: DE2-115 (Cyclone IV) and DE4 (Stratix IV). 

 

Can I use this altera core in my design and, if so, what changes should I make for my design or core? 

Or, maybe, there are another simple cores of methodes to realize DMA-enabled VGA controller. 

 

Aleksandr.

I could provide you with a general VGA-Core für 135MHz and 108MHz offering 1280x1024 pxls resolution, which I recently ported to the DE2-115. But I do now know, if this would help. It has a basic RAM-interface only.

Hello fpgaengineerfrankfurt 

Can you also send me the files for the 1280x1024 resoultions? 

 

I actually try to get a resolution of 1920x1080 and i think your files will be a good start.
