Anyone interested in using the F18A in their own computer or microcontroller system, please start with the TMS9918A datasheet since the electrical interface, host CPU interface, and timing specifications of the F18A are the same as the TMS9918A. I’m only going to outline the F18A differences here.
Since the F18A runs at a higher internal […]

F18A stands for “FPGA TMS9918A” (hence the project’s title) and will be 100% hardware and pin compatible replacement for a TMS9918A VDP (video display processor). I started this project for a few reasons:
