ECE 4760: Homework 4

  1. Why is the assembler sleep command used in the main loop?
  2. The NTSC video signal we will generate is not interlaced. Explain what interlacing is and how our video signal differs from NTSC video. You may want to refer the the Stanford page or other links on the Video Generation page.
  3. Show how you might extend the fixed point 8:8 format to 8:16 format. To do this you will need to write macros for float2fix, int2fix, addition and multipllication.
