Re: SDRAM board

I'm checking price for AS4C32M16SB-6TIN and I did not find anything under $11, does anybody has a secret cheaper source ?

Re: SDRAM board

I do not think anybody appreciate enough the beauty of the hardware design for the new SDRAM board. The PCB layout is fantastic, but the logic behind combining the two sdram chips is simply wonderfull.

Re: LASER310

Nice!

Even if it was sold in Europe, mainly UK I think, it has a noticeable success in Australia. Our friends from down under should appreciate it. Not sure if there is still an active community tough.

SGI on FPGA

Hi all, From hackaday article : https://hackaday.com/2018/05/23/retro-rebuild-recreates-sgi-workstation-demos-on-the-go/ Alice4 a FPGA for emulating SGI Workstation with graphic demo from the time: https://github.com/lkesteloot/alice/tree/master/alice4/fpga It seems a version for DE-0 exists :-) F.

NTC for 3D printer extruder can be get for really cheap :

Of course it must be fixed to the FPGA heatsink one way or another. Epoxy glue is easy.

Re: RTC board

What about using a NTC and an I2C ADC ? The NTC could be put on the FPGA's heatsink and connected to the board with wire ? MCP3021A0T is cheap and 10 bits should give an adequate resolution for the temperature.

Would mister be big enough to fit the jaguar design : https://github.com/Torlus/JagNetlists Which is interesting because it is translated from the original netlist : https://github.com/Torlus/JagNetlists/tree/master/netlists_org With both Tom and Jerry chip.

Re: I/O Board

While adopting MiSTer to Pi-Top case i also implement HUB, but using FE1.1S. It almost doesn't require external components and very cheap. The GL850G is in the same league as the FE1.1. Only external crystal needed and two resistors + decoupling. I did not check the power consumption to see which o...

Re: I/O Board

Full_MISTER_USB.jpg While waiting for my SDRAM PCB. I quickly modified the IO/Board to add a USB hub (based on GL850G). I had to get rid of button and led connectors and to modify the button to place them in front. A micro usb jumper PCB link the USB from the DE10 to the IOBoard USB. What do you th...

Re: Analogue Super NT

Many retro systems didn't follow official standards and had slightly out of standard deviations, but many modern HDMI TVs don't tolerate these deviations. Ok I see the need of a buffer to have a constant 60/50Hz framerate whatever is the input frame rate. But it means there is a lag of at least 1 f...

Obviously one is for HDMI scaler.

Well, once said it is obvious :-)

What about https://github.com/marqs85/ossc ? Would it be possible to use it to replace VIP IP from Altera ?

Re: Lattice FPGA

Also, making a product based on FPGA company which has only fractional of the market is risky. Well with Intel in charge of Altera, I'm not sure their priorities are toward small affordable FPGA for industry. But I understand the point, Micro semi/Actel also have some interesting parts. From a stri...

Lattice FPGA

Hi, I'm new to FPGA emulation and looking around I saw a lot of solutions based on Altera, I wondered why Lattice ECP5 were not more popular ? They have a great memory to logic ratio and a lower price in small quantities than comparable Xilinx/Altera parts. I only found this board : https://www.flea...
