Simple character terminal for your homebrew computer and other projects, based on Parallax Propeller chip.
The terminal uses a standard VGA/SVGA monitor for the text display and a PS2 keyboard for user input, utilizing the built-in capabilities of Propeller. It supports a subset of the ANSI Terminal protocol for display control.
The terminal will display all the printable ANSI characters (ANSI codes 32..127, 160..255). Each character cell has a 6 bit text color and a 6 bit background color (00RRGGBB). The default terminal software can be altered to support up to 100 characters on a line with up to 50 display lines.
