The title says all, I have converted the existing schematics into Kicad. This is the 1.0.0 release, and hopefully there will be no erratum. https://github.com/sporniket/kicad-conv ... /tag/1.0.0 The release provides a PDF with the schematics, a PDF with the silkscreen of the motherboard reconstruction, and a ready to use Kicad project (libraries included). For the schematics, I have decided that : Symbols for the ICs will show the physical layout of the pins, as it makes it easier to spot the pin on the real IC (for me at least). And because thanks to that, the GSTMCU still fits on an A4 sized sheets. On one occasion I deviated from this choice (for the dma sound amplification and filtering) as it obfuscated too much the circuit. Each original sheet is splitted so that each sub-part is printable on a A4 sized sheet. A Table of content I also have mentionned some fixes that would be usefull/mandatory. DMA pull-up on databus WD1772 pull-ups LMC audio mix fix RGB Video ghosting fix C415 that should be reversed The projects contains an approximative reconstruction of the motherboard's PCB. It will be good enough to locate a given component and to know how a signal is distributed accross the board. And it allow to make nice 3D renderings.
Hello, For my own needs, I have converted the Atari STE schematics (6 sheets of A3/A2 size) into Kicad : 28 A4 sized pages + a table of content page, the same annotations between the original and the conversion. The release candidate (the pdf, and a tar.gz of the kicad project) is here https://github.com/sporniket/retro-computer-clean-schematics/releases/tag/c300780-001--Atari-STe-Motherboard--v1.0.0.rc1 I plan to do the final release by the end of August. If you happen to find a typo, please report to me. Regards
