Re: ao486 Performance Technical Discussion

We really didn't use the SX versions in the U.S. We basically went from the 38, briefly to the 486, and straight to the Pentium (math bug and all). There were a slew programs that required the FPU to run by the time the 486 was popular. I am certainly not complaining. I was pointing out that the la...

Re: Local Sellers for MiSTer Expansion Boards

Well, the inability to edit posts means I can't update my status post anymore. :( I have a limited number of 128 meg SDRAM XSD 2.4 boards available. Boards are error-free at 130 MHz. As always, I produce many MiSTer addon boards and accessories See my website for the latest pricing, availability and...

Re: I/O Board

Poobah - I just got done building my V6 board and on mine at the main menu the red and green leds strobe back and forth. Is this correct? Also the digital audio led is not on. Does it only light when a digital audio source is plugged in to the jack? Thanks - gsargent The newest menu core seems to h...

Re: I/O Board

Hi eskwadrat, Some IO board info- Slow fan: Might be a new fan that needs to run a bit. Also some board builders (myself included) offer the option of a 12 volt fan, which will run slower on the IO board (should still be somewhat fast tho). Some V6 boards have a jumper for 3.3v or 5v fan power, make...

Re: SDRAM board

So, keep in mind the 90 MHz thing and the SNES thing could be unrelated. From what I am reading, the SNES thing is a relatively new development, the memtest code, and the memory board designs haven't changed in quite a while. I'd bet the 90 MHz thing is an anomaly in the memtest code. It could be on...

Re: 680x0 cores

FPGA chips come in several "speed grades", but the speed of a given chip is ultimately determined by the core and the clock(s) provided. You select an FPGA based on the requirements of your application. Saying an FPGA is "decent speed" doesn't mean anything.

Re: I/O Board

So, looking at the datasheets for the Toshiba TOSlink receivers, and doing the math, assuming a perfect connection from the LED to the TOSLink cable, and max 2 dB cable loss, we'd ideally want an LED with an output between 16 and 163 mcd @ 650nm. Given the connection between the LED and the cable is...

Re: I/O Board

Interesting.... BOMs I surveyed (not the wiki, which was 5.2 at the time) used very bright (600+ mcd) LEDs for TOSLink. I settled on one listed at LCSC: C54149 LED for TOSLink, that's a 620-630nm 926 mcd LED. It is fairly bright, but diffuse - worked well (Also discontinued, BTW) Doing the math, tha...

Re: I/O Board

Some issues to investigate: 1) You'll need to know the forward voltage of the LED to really analyze if it is appropriate. Fortunately, it's just a a diode. Put your multi meter on the diode setting, connect it up to your LED and read off the forward voltage, it'll probably be 2.0 ish, but you never ...

So, I waded through the FE2.1 datasheet and the USB 2.0 device specifications
It appears that the amber LEDs should only light when there is an error condition or an over-current issue.

Re: RTC board

I'm building some RTC 1.3 boards.
Debating on whether to populate the temp sensor, as it drives the board cost up significantly.

Any thoughts on when/if the sensor will supported? My thought now is NOT to populate it, so people can have a less expensive clock option.

Thanks!
