New development: GTIA in CPLD

Recommended Posts

i Visited Simius last weekend and recorded a video of his new RGB upgrade, you can see it here:

anyone volunteer to lend Simius a 5200 unit so we can make adaptation and test his RGB upgrade on that system as well?

there are no 5200 units in Poland.

Looking good :thumbsup:

 

And for us SCART-less people this looks like a good way to convert it into HDMI...

Yeah I have one too I would lend...but I'm in US, and I think it may get there faster from Germany or Switzerland ;-) if you want another one, please let me know!

okay - at $50 it sounds great.

 

questions -

 

1] does this include all cabling, and will these be DB9-scart or DB9-composite?

2] is same card usable on 800xl/1200xl, 800xe and 130xe?

3] no soldering on any 8-bit?

4 how do we add our names to list?

 

if it's just thru this thread, please add me for 2 units

If preorders go on at this rate, Simius will be forced to ask Foxconn to make the hardware! :-D

I'm definitely interested in one. Once you've used a computer with RGB outout using others without it sux.

How much they will cost? Are you from EU or US?

Simius said that they'd be around $60 and he's from Poland.

1. Board to DB9 only.

2. TBD

3. No soldering if the GTIA socketed.

4. Notification on this thread is enough.

OK, you can add me on the list for one, too.

 

BTW have you seen this:

I have seen it in action in Maarssen, NL a couple of months ago and it looks fabulous. It uses a Raspberry Pi Zero to monitor the address and data bus and has HDMI out via the Pi Zero.

I use this exact one with my 130XE. I use a Composite video/SVideo to SCART adapter at the moment.

It was the first thing I tried when getting back into the 8-bit scene and I was very happy with the Svideo display through the HDMI output.

Can you do me a huge favour? Fire up FlickerTerm, and type out a row of underscores (_________________). Let me know if it looks like __________ (as it should), or _-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_ (like I can pretty much guarantee it will). None of these devices I have tried correctly handle the Atari's signal.
