CollectorVision Phoenix: Rising from the ashes, there is a new way to play your favorite ColecoVision games on modern Televisions.
The CollectorVision Phoenix is an FPGA ColecoVision compatible system that plays ALL ColecoVision games. The CollectorVision Phoenix is the first true ColecoVision FPGA console, and includes over $350 worth of extra value.
What is an FPGA?
A Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA) is a programmable chip that can recreate digital circuits in hardware. An FPGA will let us recreate the components used in the actual ColecoVision so the system will be just as accurate as the original system.

The CollectorVision Phoenix is an Open Source system, so it will be able to be upgraded and expanded in the future using open source FPGA cores. It will be possible to expand the capabilities of the Phoenix to work as other systems, like the Atari 2600, once the core has been ported to the Phoenix.
