Unfortunately not all 16 bits can be used on the Falcon030. Can't recall exactly how many bits are used.

Re: Falcon 030 Microbox board

Explain why it's a shame? Is this some kind of squatters rights opinion? I think Stormy means that it's too bad he doesn't seem interested in selling any of the item's he's in possession of. 25 years have passed since Atari left the scene and if nothing has come out of this by now, I doubt that any...

Re: Falcon 030 Microbox board

You would think a person with his background would be more interested in being part of what's left of the Atari community. Seems like he was only into Atari computers for the money. Too bad he got hold of so much of what Atari left behind. Just sad!

Beautifully written mikro!

He was obviously a very close friend and important person to you. I can feel your grief and pain. :-(
I'm also sad that our small community has lost such an important person. May he rest in peace!

Re: External bus when using a CT60

The CT60 is an awesome upgrade as it's easy to switch back and forth between the stock 030 and the CT60. The only caveat is that it's close to impossible to source the 68060 nowadays.

Re: External bus when using a CT60

The 68060 will access the faster TT-RAM on the accelerator board using a full 32bit bus. Any access to ST-RAM on the Falcon board will still be via the 16bit bus. Only the 68060 can access the TT-RAM.

Re: CT60/CT63 will be available soon again

EC ? - no FPU LC ? - no FPU, no MMU ct6x needs MMU to relocate CT6x TOS. A lot of Falcon software, specially games, demos, mp3 needs FPU. Does not make sense to try these chips in a Falcon. Indeed, a 68060 without an FPU and/or MMU is not an option. It's awesome news that the CT60 is going to be pr...

Or simply a missing/forgotten trace I guess, as this was some early board from Atari as I understand it?

In short: - LA21 is grounded by setting JP2 to 2-3 (only present on newer adapters from frank.lukas) - LA22 is connected to A21 (GAL pin 4) GAL and VME bus - A22 (GAL ...

Re: need help with MC68020 addressing mode

The original code writes a long yes, but on the next long write it overwrites the last byte of the previous long, so it's actually not used, so Thorsten's code looks right to me.
