📽️ Yet Another World’s Worst Video Card

I once stumbled across with Ben Eater’s “World’s Worst Video Card” video. When I saw his implementation with a 6502 computer, I thought that by reducing the memory use I could use a dual port SRAM and skip all the video card’s cycle stealing.

So, this is what I did, a 1-bit sequel to the World’s Worst Video Card that nobody asked for.

The video card uses a 4kB dual port SRAM, a 25.175MHz oscillator downclocked to 6.29375MHz by a counter and has been tested using an Arduino Mega. In this version I generate an image with the size of 160x120px (A sixteenth part of 640x480).
