Video Processing by Altera FPGA
I wrote a book of FPGA. How to handle CMOS camera, SDRAM and VGA by using Intel (Altera) CycloneIII is in this book!!
(1) What's written in this book??
  • How to use Qsys.
  • The target is Terasic DE0 board.
  • How to manipulate SDRAM and SD card.
  • Real-time video processing by using CMOS camera.
  • How to show it on VGA.
  • How the source codes (HDL & C) work.
  • Anyway, see these (Youtube) movies.
  • The book includes all sources of "Video Processing by Altera FPGA 1 to 8".
(2) About password
  • Go to support site. The first link is "".
  • Decompress it. Then "" appears but it requires a password.
  • The first 8 numbers are in the title of fig.1-23. See p32, that is "4xxxxxxx"
  • The second 5 characters are in the title of fig.15-15. See p291, that is "Sxxxx".
  • The last 7 characters are in the title of fig.A-4. See p297, that is "Rxxxxxx".
  • Connect them with hyphen. The password is 4xxxxxxx-Sxxxx-Rxxxxxx
  • Execute FpgaOriginal.exe. Note that it's a huge file and takes time (2 to 3 minutes).
  • The adapter board is sold by DIGITALFILTER.COM. Click the picture right below.
(3) Extra information
  • You may use OV5642 instead of OV7670. See Youtube channel.
  • The soruce code of this project may be available later on.
