Re: ColdFire board running TOS

I am... i've been working more on the board at work, and so far I broke compatibility somehow... I called myself optimizing the 68k emulation engine, now many of the programs I used before don't work... That is the joy of the development :) I am sure you will fix that soon. I hope we will be able t...

Re: ColdFire board running TOS

This board is pretty similar... http://www.freescale.com/webapp/sps/site/prod_summary.jsp?code=M5475EVB&fsrch=1&sr=2 take away the PCI slots and the faster processor and I would say it is almost identical (minus the Altera FPGA) to my company's board. In fact, I intend to see if I can get a...

Re: ColdFire board running TOS

And not just the keyboard and mouse are emulated, the Yamaha sound chip (in theory but the board has no sound output) is, system timer a and timer c, the blitter chip (EmuTOS doesn't use it), serial and parallel (again, in theory-Untested). Almost everything but midi. So it is basically running lik...

Thanks! If I can fix what I broke with the emulation, i'll try it out... :D

Re: ColdFire board running TOS

I didn't use traps or anything similar, I have the whole 68k core emulated. Other than my pseudo-instructions, you cannot access the ColdFire native instruction set under my emulator. Of course that could be changed, but that was the quick and easy way for me to do it. Mouse and keyboard are ps/2 t...

Re: ColdFire board running TOS

Oh since you mention it, I don't have midi interface on my project. Not the physical ports or emulated. For the board cost, I have no clue what they cost or are selling for. Not my department and because of the client most of us employees wouldn't know the price anyway. I am not familiar with the n...

Re: ColdFire board running TOS

The video of mine looks like it runs good but to tell the truth there are many bugs in it. The EmuTOS kept locking up with MiNT running so that is something I would have to really take a look at. Something that I do not understand... Why must you run Mint on it? EmuTOS is an OS by itself. It's is s...

That's the reason it is running on EmuTos I suppose. :mrgreen:


That is exactly the reason. I don't want to get fired over my little project :lol:

Re: ColdFire board running TOS

cod3r, I´d like to welcome you as well! Perhaps I can share some of my implementation ideas to further along the ColdFire. The work and progress with ACP looks promising and has accomplished much with a brand new physical machine available. I am the person trying to coordinat the ACP, and I am glad...

Anyway, since the firebee still don't run GFABASIC, I'd be interested in knowing if this board can do it?


I don't have GFABASIC to try. Can I download it somewhere? Or if it is commercial do you have any links to I can buy it?

Re: ColdFire board running TOS

For network and USB support, these are newer developement and will need an OS called MInt with appropriate extensions. The network are mostly Realtex chipset based, and so may not work for the board. Latest developement for USB has just had hot-plug capability (like may be a year back). Most ST use...

Re: ColdFire board running TOS

With the help of an Altera FPGA and some GPL'ed VHDL source from opencores.org I got the board to run EmuTOS a while back (68k version under emulation Hey cod3r, I am mostly interested in your 68k emulation. I read somewhere you didnt use traps to emulate missing commands. Do you emulate by softwar...

Re: ColdFire board running TOS

That custom board seems to be loaded with USB & network. What else are emulated by your program, as in what other hardware is emulated ? I also wonder if it can do more colours or higher resolutions? There are VDI extension like fvdi that allows this on other hardware ( falcon & tt). I gues...

ColdFire board running TOS

Greetings all, I was invited to the forum by a member of the Atari ColdFire Project Team so I thought I would officially introduce myself. I am a developer with a company that manufactures embedded systems for industrial and military applications. We use some Freescale products in some of the design...
