#3942791 Devices that contain 65C802

Posted by Kyle22 on Yesterday, 10:55 AM

Wouldn't it be possible to creat a "pseudochip" using an SMD version of the 65C816 on a small PCB with Sally-like pins that does whatever conversion is required to make it work? You probably gather from my description that I am not an electronics guru but there are devices like SwinSID for the C64 that are built that way.

 

There might be hope for the 400/800 as tf_hh wrote that he might make a new edition of the SCCC 65C816 compatible.

That is sort of what our Sweet-16 is. a 40 pin DIP 816 on a small board not much larger than the chip with a GAL on the underside of the board.

#3942787 Whatever became of the "Sweet-16?"

Posted by Kyle22 on Yesterday, 10:53 AM

The Sweet-16 I'm referring to is the 65816 replacement cpu that was sold briefly.

Here's what I think I remember:

It was sold briefly, and generally worked, but had some issues in some computers.
It was supposedly quite simple (and not much bigger than the dip-40 IC).
It was primarily developed by someone other than FTE.
It needed some additional work, but AFAIK, the project died.
No details ever released (that I am aware of).

What's right; what's wrong, what's missing in the above? Why did it die?

65816's are cheap and readily available. This seems like a logical and pretty straight-forward improvement for our machines.

Yeah, this is a NecroQuote, but I just saw this :)

 

Who do you think "primarily developed" it?

 

It was ME who stayed up one night working on code for the GAL on the Sweet-16.

 

I made the first working version of it.

Or an Incognito which may be switched between 800 and XL/XE mode.

I have successfully used a plastic drinking straw to blow molten solder out of holes.


#3938114 MIDI Interface

Posted by Kyle22 on Wed Jan 17, 2018 9:57 PM

How about "SynthFace" or "AtariSynth" or simply just "Orchestra"?

 

No matter the name, how much will a final version product cost?  Shipped to Pittsburgh, PA, USA?

 

This info will not only help me, but other Atarians in the general area as well.

 

Thanks.




#3933978 Was anything ever made for the 1090 expansion box?

Shut up Butthead, I said it first, dill hole.

#3933975 Cases for the Mini-ITX based Atari 8-Bit Motherboards

Posted by Kyle22 on Fri Jan 12, 2018 6:34 PM

Someone could create a custom version of the board with console keys header and XEGS keyboard port. That would be perfect for this style case.

Would it be a 1088XELGS then, or is that too long of a name?

I like the idea of an XEL with slots.

Attached is a .zip file with the script. Put both files in your Windows directory.

Set up the script file as a scheduled task for every Sunday at 2:00 AM (or whenever you want).

Who doesn't know what a CX85 is? Wow! As I was reading that post, I moved my left hand no more than 2 feet and pressed the keys on my CX85.
