Sneak Preview of the REV 2 STE booster.

Recommended Posts

PCB is almost finished..

 

Basically the STE booster with more stuff...

 

We have 8MB of Fast-RAM (32Mhz). 32MHZ 68000 CPU. Fast-Flash 32MHz flashable ROM banks (probably 4 or 8 ROM banks). Simple IDE interface. Also this booster can be set via software or switches. Settings are stored in the small ATTINY flash chip. So if you select TOS206 and write the setting to the tiny-flash, then the STE will boot with TOS206. Also the booster can be turned on/off with software which saves having to mount switches.

Please don't "nag" when this will be finished, I've got like 20 projects on the go already... and no I am not adding anything else to this, so don't ask!

 

 

Also my simple STE V1.5 plug in (same as V1 STE booster but plug in) is almost finished.

Chris, will this work with a Mega STe as well?

 

Thanks (and thanks for continuing to support the Atari

This is great. I need the extra RAM haha.

 

What about putting through holes for a 68000 socket?

 

That way a graphics card adapter could be added later. I think Frank Lucas is working on one.

 

That would make a killer system!

I'm so torn about buying an STE now to sit next to my Mega STE, 520STf, and 800XL.
