"Rebirth of the POKEY: Recreating Atari's 8-Bit Sound Chip in an FPGA" by David Shuman.
What do you do when your collection of early 80's arcade games is threatened by a malfunctioning ASIC? You recreate the chip in an FPGA! Gather round, kids, as speaker David Shuman recounts how his product, the "PokeyONE," came to life.
David Shuman is a Nashville software developer and aspiring FPGA hotshot who has been collecting and restoring video arcade games since 1993. His last presentation at NashMicro was at the April 2017 meetup, where he hosted "Making Your Own Printed Circuit Boards: From DIY to Production."
Food and live streaming of the talk will be provided by Sturnus, Inc. They are a group of people who make embedded systems from right here in the Nashville, TN area. You can check them out at www.sturnusdesign.com or talk with some of them at the meetup!
Eat and greet @ 6. Show and tell begins after that and the presentation begins around 6:30 p.m.
