Introduction to the MiSTer FPGA project
In this talk we take a look at the MiSTer project and dive into the world of retrogaming and classic computing using FPGA (Field Programmable Gate Array) based "hardware emulation" as an alternative to the established software emulation methods.
New, more powerful and more affordable FPGAs are causing a revolution in the world of retrogaming and retrocomputing. One such FPGA based project called MiSTer is gaining a lot of traction lately.
This talk gives an introduction to the MiSTer project and demonstrates some recreations of classic arcade, NES, SNES, Megadrive and classic computer systems in FPGA form called "cores".
If you grew up in the 80s and 90s and you're nostalgic for arcade and console games of that era then don't miss this talk.
