Abstract

In this paper, we synthesize a Breakout game code which runs on an FPGA development and education board. For this purpose, an original Breakout game code that runs exclusively on the FPGA board is designed in VHDL hardware description language. The strength of this design is that the code does not require any SRAM modules for storage which eliminates the memory requirements and results in faster operation. Altera DE0 development and education board is used for the implementation. However, since only the standard VHDL functions is used in the code, it can run on any other FPGA boards.
