Re: My new, compact Atari -> VGA adapter.

It should. If you hold the button for +2s it should save the current state as default at power on. It’ll always boot into lowres on reset.

Good thing I’ve fiddled with a Mega version then. :) Can probably make one for you as well, just need to order PCBs.

Re: My new, compact Atari -> VGA adapter.

Yep. Got the PCBs on Friday. Spent a few hours assembling 25 boards, ran out of solder paste. So production is stopped until Wednesday when I get more paste. Good news is that I had 0% failure rate on this batch, down from 10-15%.

That’s a new one. Hires is as close to VGA as one can get.

Re: My new, compact Atari -> VGA adapter.

Nah. Wating for a new revision. Ought to turn up next week. And after that one has been confirmed it’s another week for ordering a full batch plus components.

Re: My new, compact Atari -> VGA adapter.

BTW, if you remove the attiny you’ll lose the functionality of switching in software.

Re: My new, compact Atari -> VGA adapter.

With led, the current is to big.


I think I mentioned just that. :)

However, if you run it in 1MHz, with some changes to the detection, you’d probably be able to use the LEDs.

Re: My new, compact Atari -> VGA adapter.

To elaborate on 3: The only thing that can mess with the image quality is the 3 ohm resistance in the V330 chip, and that would only darken the picture by a small fraction. The V330 chip has a maximum bandwidth of 200MHz, so no lag should be added by running the pixel data through it. H and V sync s...

Re: My new, compact Atari -> VGA adapter.

I’m working on a new revision, got new PCBs on Monday and realized I’ve done a brain fart and mixing some signals up. So I’ve fixed that and ordered new boards.

But I think Oliver will sell his version, right?

It’s ok, for one run. And it means that the donation is voluntary as well, if it’s named something else.

Re: My new, compact Atari -> VGA adapter.

Yep, 2s to store current state of the selectPin, value is the same as the ST; low mono, high color.

(Burn bootloader in Arduino IDE is setting the fuses, so we’ve got the terminology straight.)

Re: My new, compact Atari -> VGA adapter.

Hm. Try and up the bootWait to see if that’s the problem. Additionally, you’re using other components than I and running the ATTiny at 8MHz draws about 80% of the available power (~8 out of 10 mA) so I wouldn’t be too surprised if adding that (super cool) digital pot and two leds gives you stability...

Re: My new, compact Atari -> VGA adapter.

Let’s see. From the top of my head... I don’t do anything but set 8MHz internal and then burn bootloader in Arduino IDE.

Re: My new, compact Atari -> VGA adapter.

A bit of an announcement. I’ve decided on stop making my switches, mainly due to the fact that they do take too much of my time; I haven’t opened my DAW to make music for quite some while (mainly because my desk is full of switch components). I will however continue developing, there are some small ...

Re: My new, compact Atari -> VGA adapter.

To switch NTSC/PAL it's probably easier adding some switch to the motherboard; on STEs it's R405 and R459 that needs to be disconnected for PAL.

Re: My new, compact Atari -> VGA adapter.

Mega computers, the monitor itself is in the way. With the external connector one can place a button on the side of the computer for easier reach.

PAL/NTSC: not feasible. At least not without adding extra hardware. :)

Re: My new, compact Atari -> VGA adapter.

30+1 shipped to Exxos.

-Plus one? You might say.

There is one v1.1 in the box, with external header for the button. Good for MSTE-owners. Who will get it? Only Exxos’ head of logistics (aka girlfriend) knows. :)

It takes 5 secs to get to the desktop without floppy connected. I hope that doesn't mean the controller is dead.
