Hi Everyone, finally I have the PBI version routed (4 layer board). I still have some labeling to clean up and then it's off to the PCB house to have a very limited number of alpha PCB's produced. These are already spoken for. Once we work any klinks out then a wider beta may be offered. Thanks for your patience.

ps Drogon is just the code name not the final product name. :D

I'm late to the party, but would it make sense to route the PCLINK resp. RCl protocols to RespeQt via the network?

Just to make sure there's no misunderstanding: The question of implementing "PCLINK over Ethernet" is of course equally relevant to both upcoming Ethernet solutions.

Yes, sure. As I understand it IP65 will support all the (soon) existing Atari solutions, so it can become handy to handle interfacing to the dragons.

SWEET!!!

 

I will also happily to test the guts out of it on my XLs... (seems like my speciality, nowadays...)

 

I do wonder about the form-factor though.... I see a PBI-type connector, but it would be great if with miminal or no modifications, it could rest inside of the 800 / Incognito expansion-bay where there is direct access to Incognito's PBI port, as well... there are ways to get the ethernet cable out of if, nicely).

 

I can only imagine the first sustained, throughput test between CPU, system-bus and D-cart... especially with the ability to offload Layer-3 processing overhead... that should be SWEET (!!!)

 

Any plans to incorporate a WiFi interface, considering that in most Atari applications, wave-propagation would not be a problem from external cart)?
