Mandelbrot Set In Real-Time In VGA

Posted February 6, 2012 by Chris

“Along the lines of ‘high-performance’ computation, I have collaborated with Joshua Wise to write (in Verilog) logic to draw a Mandelbrot set in real-time on a VGA monitor. The Mandelbrot set is a connected set of points in the complex plane that depends on an infinite iterative process to determine whether each point is in the set. At each iteration, the original starting point is added to the (complex) square of the previous point.”
