Hello to anyone reading this!
I am pretty new (knowledge wise) to programming and electronics, so I have a question.
I wanted to start learning how to program a screen using VGA and a small OLED (with the Propeller) that Parallax sells, but I ran into a problem, it is a lot more complex than I thought it would be.
Although there is a lot that I need to learn, I want to know how the VGA signals from the Prop get sent to the adapter. I would have expected to see actual code (VGA spin driver in the Prop library) toggling pins to send the data, however, all I really seem to see is the data getting written to main memory.
In short, I do not know how the Prop sends the VGA adapter the signals. If anyone can explain this to me I would greatly appreciate it!
Additionally, if anyone knows about books that are informative on topics like these. And I am not talking about literally programming the Prop, but more like ones that could be used in teaching about the concepts of programming in a college course (maybe cheaper prices..).
If anyone is wondering... I am in college, but I am more focused on electrical engineering than computer engineering (hard/soft) because of the job market.
Thanks for all the help anyone is able to give!
