Re: The last MIST

[*] Nicely finished as an end product in a metal case it's matter of favor. When i was young, i've made some simple devices like power supply or clock generator in such cases. So, this style of cases will always remind me PSU and i really hate to have such case on FPGA board. The first thing when I...

Re: The last MIST

I hardly imagine DIY kit for soldering with BGA chips :) 6 layer PCB alone will cost more than the DE10-nano, although i think DE10-nano is at least 10-layer board. It's better not to make illusions of DIY similar to MiSTer. It's impossible by many aspects. Although MiST2 with TQFP chip and other si...

Re: The last MIST

I don't see why you felt the need to tell me that bacteria don't eat FPGA cores. It was a joke :) I just don't get the point of your frustration. If you want FPGA clone of Atari ST, then you can buy it now and i believe within foreseeing future. Producing MiST doesn't automatically mean developing ...

Re: NEW OR UPDATED ARCADE CORES

be careful - arcade cores include ROMs as far as i know. It may have an legal issues. I wouldn't put them into official MiST repository.

Re: The last MIST

What I find really sad is that Atari ST users are left without a hardware replacement for their system. MiST is still available in the shop. Buy it then. Atari ST sources are available to port to other boards. FPGA core is not a food - it won't be rotten. You still can continue to use as long as yo...

Re: The last MIST

I think the big hit to FPGA boards (ant ot MiST of course) came from Raspberry Pi. The cost of RPi is just a fraction of custom FPGA board and it can do much more than FPGA does. Some knowledgeable guy will see the differences between FPGA and ARM, but for generic user who makes the sales is unaware...

From sales point of view, it's not a good idea to announce the end of manufacturing. It should be announce then end of sales when you have no stock anymore.

Re: Pi-top case for MiSTer

It seems display doesn't care about pixel clock, so any clock is OK. Thus you can use 1920x1080 with lower clock like 110MHz.

Re: Pi-top case for MiSTer

Some additional notes: The best SDRAM placement for this case is horizontal inward if you use included standoffs to fasten DE10n. Extra slim preventing the door to be closed very little. I will try to fasten DE10n without standoffs - it should be able to fit. Need to think about fan placement. Proba...

Re: Pi-top case for MiSTer

Well, 148.5MHz is too high. It will add metastability to most cores which i don't want.
I think, for FullHD TV it's better to choose 960x540 resolution which is exactly quarter of FHD and should not add artifacts of second scaling.

Re: Pi-top case for MiSTer

please do not overquote! There is no reason to quote whole my message just to write a several words. FullHD is possible, but pixel clock 148.5MHz is kind of extreme. Especially for large cores where higher clock is additional source of instability. Core should be compiled with highest possible HDMI ...

Originally i was fan of idea to install MiSTer inside Amiga 1200 Kickstarter case. As always with kickstarter campaigns it delays a lot. So, i found this Pi-top case and it looks even better since you have display integrated. So, I've decided to give it a go and ordered the case. By the way, since i...

Re: ZX-UNO Spectrum FPGA

ZX-Uno has a big drawback - it's limited to Spanish society. Developers should make English as a primary language for their forums if they really want to spread their project. Google translator is handy, but still it's a big red sign for most people.
