    I updated the FujiNet daughterboard for my 576NUC+ beta machine and see nothing like that visible. Was this update pulled?

    yes, it's in the latest firmware from https://fujinet.online/download/ :

      [6a79fbb7] webui: option to mount read or r/w

     

    I assume you are following the correct process to mount an image thru the web ui? you won't see that until you select an image to mount.

    The idea of cutting a hole in the front panel of the 1030 gives me goosebumps.  If it would a 1010, no problem, these can easily be found, or a 1027 that would need some serious TLC, no problem.  But a 1030?

    To me, a modem is a completely pointless device now. What am I supposed to do with it? Look at it? I have not had a real landline in over 15 years. It makes more sense to re-purpose it into something useful.

    Hello mozzwald

     

    Just so I understand correctly: We take out the 1030 PCB and the front panel and replace it with your 1030 FujiNet PCB and a new front panel?

     

    Sincerely

     

    Mathy

     

     

    You would replace the 1030 pcb with the FujiNet pcb. Then you would drill holes in the original front panel to fit the new buttons and sd card slot. A 3d printed template/jig would be used to properly align the holes to be drilled.

     

    It's probably possible to design a replacement from panel. Not sure how easy it would be to print it or how good it would look


  4. There was some more chat on the FujiNet discord tonight about a FujiNet inside the 1030. I played around a bit more with the layout and this is what I came up with (nothing is routed, just component placement and very rough at that): 

    1030F-preview.thumb.jpg.6d027465f9fdcef28ba3c73eb7cd75ca.jpg

    You can see the original board outline in the image above. The front panel (IMO) is where the buttons and SD slot should be, but others may beg to differ :). My idea is to make a 3D printed jig that fits over/in the front panel with holes that are to be drilled out for the buttons and SD slot. One existing LED will be for SIO activity and the other existing LED a bi-color LED for WIFI and BT status. There was a recommendation to put the SD in the back where a SIO receptacle is instead. While I can understand that, it still doesn't seem right. I'm open to ideas still.

    No, I am not having any problems but if there is a newer version coming out then it would have been better to have waited. From what  read existing ones cannot be upgraded/flashed to take them to 1.4/1.5, is that correct?

    Every FujiNet hardware version uses the exact same firmware and have 99.9999% the same feature set. You can see the hardware differences in the wiki. Most of the changes are bug fixes. The only (that we are aware of) major problem you could have with v1.3 is the inability to upgrade the firmware due to a hardware bug if your vendor did not apply the fix and this bug only affects some computers, not all.

    Oops, looks like I bought a 1.3 at the wrong time. I assume I will then need to buy a new Fujinet...

    Are you having problems with your v1.3?

     

    There is no need to buy a new one unless you want an additional Fujinet to use on another computer.

    I bought 1.4 from the Fujinet site, the changes don't seem to be listed on the github page.

    V1.4 has everything on v1.5 except:

    • Add ESD (TVS) Protection Diodes for USB input
    • Change USB port footprint to use slots
    • Add 10k pull up resistors for uSD Card

    So will it work plugging into the passthrough of a v1.3?  The fujinet covers my audio port on my XEL and my only other sio device is end of chain.

    Yes, you can plug a SIO cable into the Fujinet receptacle and plug the other end into the Atari or another SIO device and it will work. You may need to power the Fujinet with external power due to the voltage drop depending on your power supply & length of the cable/SIO chain.

    Curious if there is a Male/Female SIO cable? Reason I ask is I want to purchase FujiNet, but I would prefer NOT to plug it directly into my Atari.. I would rather plug a cable into the atari, and then the Fujinet a few feet away, and then my other peripherals chained from there. Its a desk setup thing and a preference thing.

    As mentioned, your best bet is to plug the Fujinet into another peripheral and probably power it externally.

    Question:  Is there any circuitry between the in & out SIO ports on the FujiNet, or are the signals all just pass-thru?  If the signals are all pass-thru, then you can just use a regular SIO cable and plug it into the back / out SIO port on the FujiNet.

    The plug and receptacle are pass through so you can indeed use a cable on the Fujinet receptacle. v1.3 and up have line buffers to separate the esp32 from SIO signals for better compatibility with other devices in the SIO chain.

    We need a SIO gender changer

    This could be done using a small pcb and two Fujinet style receptacles.

    I see new Fujinet Hardware but not seen anyone selling them.  Also what is new in these new revisions. 

    v1.3 had a hardware bug (my fault) that caused issues with flashing the firmware. There is a fix that should be applied to the v1.3 boards (ask your vendor). v1.5 is released with the fix and some other minor tweaks. Changes are listed in the hardware repo readme and on the wiki. There will be a v1.6 with more minor changes: added SD Card detect pin and better SIO voltage measurement, neither issue hinder functionality in older versions.

     

    As for stock on fujinet.online, I build small batches of each revision when I have time and put them up for sale. You can signup to get notified via email from the product page but I don't know when I will be making more so could be a while.

    Based on my experience, I would strongly recommend the Fixed version

    I can only recommend the fixed version. You'll never know if you have problems until you try flashing and I've had to replace enough FujiNet's to know that it's a problem. I would prefer the no-fix version not be sold at all to prevent unhappy users. The fix should not be very difficult for someone who can assemble smd boards.

    I see that TBA is selling v.1.3 now.  I have read here that there is a v.1.5 coming soon.  I guess I will hold steady and wait for further news.

    I had run the program successfully some weeks ago, interested in the new happenings, decided to flash. FujiNet-Flasher can't find a serial port. Rescan, nothing. Try to flash anyway, fails, no serial port. Reboot, same. Re-install the USB drivers (the process recognizes that there is a driver install), same. Download fresh copies of everything, same.

     

    Am I missing something obvious? Not sure why this process that went smoothly the first time is giving me trouble, now. I'm on Catalina, it definitely worked before...

    Clicking the Serial Port dropdown shows nothing? I think on macs the serial port shows up as /dev/cu*something*, can you check if it appears there from terminal:

    ls /dev/cu*

    Let me know, and I'll change my divider values, and give any firmware updates a test.

    I've changed my resistor divider to 1.2k & 2k which puts the high voltage around 3.125 volts. My bench power supply and DMM confirmed good results. A new firmware update was just pushed with updated calculation for v1.6 hardware. I also added debug output that shows what is being used as the voltage reference calibration: efuse, two-point or default.

     

    When you get a moment, could you swap your resistors and give it a test? Thanks!
