-- Instantiate the voters
-- Note: Voting is only performed over the RGB outputs of the three
-- spriteflyer (Sprite Engine) instances. This masks errors in one
-- of the three instances which propagate to the outputs. It does
-- NOT correct the internal state of the instances. Thus, errors
-- affecting the internal state (e.g., the position of the sprite)
-- lead to a permanent difference between the instance where the
-- error ocurred to the other two. For better resilience against soft
-- errors, voting should also be performed over the state registers,
-- as described e.g., in [1].
