There is a BOM ot the Wiki for the 5.2 - the 5.5 has not mutch difference.
I already wanted to add the 5.5 but till now I had not any time to do this.

arithmaldor has the BOM of the 5.5 on his blog https://tinkerplunk.com/io-board/

And if somebody is capeable of soldering he should be at least able to read the schematics - otherwise I can tell you how the slodering will look like (and (not) work) !

Putting no efford to anythink I want to have? Just need somebody doing all the things that might be a little bit more complicated?
Sorgelig has done a fantastic job - should he put everybody at his hands and guide him the way to the light?
Is this the new generation?

Sorry I'm out of this discussion! !!! BTT !!!

I am doing another production run of short SDRAM boards and RTC boards. I really thought interest died with these boards so I stopped producing them. I just got bombarded with emails about the replacement all-in-one board that I designed that I never released. I will look at making a few finishing touches and get it into production as well. This board incorporates my own version of the I/O board functionality (minus the optical output) along with the SDRAM and RTC. There is a 2nd circuit board that plugs in between the main board and the all-in-one board (like a cable). I don't have a release date for this yet, but I am guessing early next year.

I'll put together a digikey BOM for a single board. I highly recommend using lcsc since you can combine shipping with pcb's from jlcpcb. I'll try to put some kits out but I'll have to see how long it takes to assemble.

Is anyone in North America who is making IO and SDRam boards taking names for a waiting list ? It seems the people making them right now are swamped and had to close their pre-orders.
I don't mind waiting as long as I know I am on a list to get one for certain eventually.

I used https://www.pcbway.com/project/shareproject/MiSTer_SDRAM_board_v3_1__Universal_.html to see what it would cost to get the sdram board made, but it has to be approved. If I go this route is there anything I need to configure/change on their website, like some of the options that are available.

It was only $24 dollars for 50 boards not including shipping.

I ordered 50 sdram boards from pcbway. Average cost is a little over $1 usd. Will buy the other components and test a board once received.

I just want MisTer to work for NES with HDMI.
Would this set up work?

- a fully populated I/O board 5.5
- SDRAM XS 1.1 (vertical mount)

I am in U.S.A. and I have money!
Whomever can help me please PM me.

Thanks. :cheers:

If you're only interested in NES with HDMI there's no need for an I/O board

I’m finishing up a small batch of 5.5 IO Boards, Horizontal SDRAM, and USB Hubs.

The IO Boards are fully populated, including a fan and heatsink. I’m waiting for the fan screws to come in and I’ll upload pictures.

The USB Hub boards come with standoffs for proper spacing under the main board. They also include a power cable splitter to allow for a single power supply to power both the de10-nano and USB board.

SDRAM: $35
IO 5.5: $50
USB Hub: $40

Shipping is $5-10 in USA

UPDATE: Thanks for everyone’s support! I sold out of my initial batch but am I’m restocking my supply. I have 60 SDRAM XS (switched from horizontal to XS due to popularity) and 40 IO boards. I may do more USB Hubs but the demand isn’t as high for these. The boards should be ready to ship in 2-4 weeks. Email me via the forum to get on the waitlist. Thanks!

UPDATE 2 (11/23): Sold out of IO boards but still have 30 SDRAM XS boards and placed new order for 10 more USB hub boards.

Well... I am back ordered several hundred SDRAM and RTC boards. So, I am producing an even larger quantity that before. I expect to have these available next week.

I ordered IO board and SD RAM but the IO board is defective. Does any one else selling one and would ship to Canada ?

How do we preorder? I need I/O board, SD ram. I want usb hub and rtc as well for the hell of it.

Long shot, but looking for a USA dealer for:
- vertical SDRAM
- IO Board 5.5 fully populated with no heatsink and no fan

Looking for an estimated wait time for this and don't mind waiting.

I believe only the SDRAM XS can do 167 MHz but none of the cores use it. The rest of the SDRAM setups can do up to 160 MHz.

Not totally right ... I've had also UNI Ram modules that pass 167MHz ON MY BOARD.
But this is not generally so - yes the possibility that a XS passes the 167MHz is higher than for a Universal one, but:

- Depends on the DE10 board
- Depends on the noise in your power line
- Depends on the Ram Chip itself (corner sample)
- on many other things.
and
The SDRam Chips are 6ns - if you calculate the max frequency is 166.6666 MHz
So the 167Mhz is the absolute maximum.
I'm still fascinated that the modules work at this frequency at all.

In a classic PCB design you would place the memory near to the chip. Will have an eye on the impedance and track length and use normally a 4 Layer board.
Here we have connectors in between, just 2 layers and so on - I'm really impressed that it works at all - here you can see which kind of great job Sorgelig has done!

And: The core with the highest need is the MiniMig with 114.75Mhz.
Sorgelig mentioned that everything above and equal 140MhZ is fine!

So the main difference between XS and UNI is the size and that the UNI can be build horizontal.
In the vertical way the UNI will set the max hight of the system and you will not be able to use the XS Case with a UNI one - that's it!

I am interested in one of each if you still have some available. I just joined and can't PM yet though.

Looks like there is a shortage of sellers with stock on assembled SDRAM boards.

If anyone wants to sell me one please let me know, i'd like to buy one :)

Edit: Someone here contacted me so i'm sorted out thanks!

Does anyone ship to canada or is from canada? I'm looking to get the SDram and an IO board that are both preassembled
