I received permission from Eric Firestone to upload his 2018 Chicago Fair presentation regarding the 99/5C he and Cadd Electronics are producing.

 

My unit should arrive in the next few days.

Yea I was impressed when I saw it at the meeting but $800 threw me. I would love to see photos of your unit and let us know how it works and any issues you run into and the support you get

Seeing that it is using ARM chips with DSP support, I'm assuming this thing is emulating a TI, v9983, etc... ? There's no bespoke FPGA logic anywhere on the board?

Would the emulator be able to run on other ARM hardware?

 

*edit* apologies in advance for what might be silly questions, the presentation is kinda light on details and I did not get a chance to see any of the Chicago footage :).

In the second document, we can read:

The "C" skips the "B", since it avoids confusion with the 99/4B. Instead we use "C".

That's OK. But, in this case, why having chosen "5" ? because there is a confusion with the 99/5,

Besides the two part video that Cadd presented at the Chicago Fair, I also did a Facebook live posting at:

You have to turn the volume up pretty good to hear it.  Video quality may be better, you can be the judge.

 

Just a FYI, I have no vested financial interest in Cadd's work.  Eric did relay other possibilities yo me regarding the hardware capabilities that could open up other things as well that intrigued me besides the 4A stuff.

Although you describe it on your page, I guess only few people have it in mind.

I think too, but just like the "99/4B".

I think he said in the video: "5 is better than 4."
