Bringing HDMI support and more to the Nintendo Entertainment System.

About the NES HD

NES HD is a senior design project by Paul Sorensen and Samuel Roth, students at Ohio Northern University. They are advised by Dr. Ziad Youssfi.

The goal of the project was to program the hardware of the original Nintendo Entertainment System onto a field-programmable gate array (FPGA). We also sought to implement support for the HDMI A/V standard.

The project was presented at the 2016 IEEE Student Activities Conference at Cleveland State University, as well as at various research events held by Ohio Northern University and the TJ Smull College of Engineering.
