      Short description: Video Graphics Array (VGA) stands for an analog computer display standard introduced in 1987 by IBM. Even though initially designed for “ancient” CRT displays it is still in use and is supported by most modern LCDs. In this exercise we will get an idea of how this interface works and will use it to display some text and graphics on our monitors directly from the FPGA logic. In addition, we’ll discuss of what is needed to extend our solution to something that we will more resemble on graphic adapters used in computer based devices today.
