Interfacing clockport with CPLD


For christmas I've received a CoolRunner II CPLD starter board. Recently I was experimenting with hooking it up to Amiga's clockport... and I had some success. I implemented very simple communication mechanism between Amiga (clockport) and PC (USB) connected to CPLD board.

I decided to release the source code for other people interested in this topic. The VHDL code isn't very high quality, as I never did any hardware design before. But I'll work on improving it.

Keep in mind that it's still work in progress, but it's already possible to transfer single bytes both ways .
