There are several hardware and software components required to develop the Hack computer system. The hardware described in the Project Description can be realized with an FPGA development board, a PS/2 keyboard, and a VGA monitor. In addition, software will be needed the FPGA development, and FPGA simulation. Lastly, a programming IDE will be needed for the software components in the later phases of the project.

The detailed requirements for each component can be found below.


FPGA Development Board

The FPGA development board must be able to support the following digital hardware components:

· 16-bit Hack CPU composed of ALU, registers, program counter, and control logic.

· 32 KB of ROM

· 32 KB of RAM

· VGA Driver chip

· PS/2 Driver chip

In addition it would be beneficial if the development board supported a VGA connector, a PS/2 connector, and simple programming interface for setting up the board.

The DE0-CV Board meets all the above requirements.
