Shooting arcade game using CPLD

Posted on Sunday, May 1st, 2011 in builds, CPLD, infrared, sensors by the machinegeek

Here’s a video of Jeri Ellsworth’s latest project for element14, a shooting arcade game using the MachXO2 CPLD. The game is simple in principle: use an LED light gun to shoot the light sensors representing the bad guys when they appear at windows in the target house. The implementation is more challenging, with the heavy logic being handled by Jeri’s homebrew MachXO2 CPLD board, with National LED drivers and motor drivers.

This is a game prototype, so no code or schematic yet.

  • Drone: So these go for around $330 USD and NO published calibration procedure online or otherwise? Given what's inside - I don't think I'll be considering...
  • Pekka Akselin: This is ridiculous!? :-) We are back at 256(!) byte EPROMs that needed multiple, a handful, of voltages to run! :-(
  • KH: Let's try a back-of-envelope calc balancing energies. From MCP1700 datasheet, there are graphs for a 200mA load step. Estimate the energy shortfall as 12uJ. Say...
