Ok thanks, but an original 800 XL draws something like less than an amp (850mA is what I measured) so that one would have no,problem with that either.

I'm suspecting because of the technology the FPGA is made with .....and the few parts on the PCB this might use very litte power......which would be awesome to make it Lipo battery operated :):)

A couple of hundred mA should work if you don't want to use any peripherals or carts! I really need to plug in my ammeter to check...

@santosp/foft

 

Any particular plans for a keyboard, or just a stock PC keyboard (there are bunches to choose from)?  A plug-in adapter for a regular Atari keyboard would be really cool.  Really like this design since so things are built-in and need not be added at extra cost.

 

Have you finalized a size & layout for the pcb at this time?

I actually like the idea of having 4 ports very much and it was not clear for me if you want to remove or add them (I don't have the developer board, but I'm interested in the final one).

 

> But it save me some pennies to not include the d-sub connectors on board!

 

Please think it over. I wouldn't like to spoil a professionally manufactered board with additional soldering. D-sub connectors on board is a good idea.

Yes, it needs 4 ports for PBI devices and MULE.
