FS: Mini-ITX clone Atari XL system (EclaireXL)

Recommended Posts

I made some extra boards in the last prototype run of the EclaireXL, since most of the cost is setup cost.

 

We have now received and tested the boards, so have about 10 of these spare to sell.

 

The price is 250USD (or equivalent) + shipping (22 EUR to US, 20 EUR to EU).

 

As a reminder of the features:

  • Highly compatible Atari 800 XL clone
  • Memory configuration from 64K to 1MB (including antic bank switched 'compy shop' modes and non-antic bank switch 'rambo' modes)
  • CPU accelerator built in, runs at up to 16x original speed
  • Stereo pokey
  • Covox
  • Original ports: 4 joystick ports with input/output (2 of which support paddles), SIO port, PBI port, cartridge socket.
  • USB keyboard and joystick support
  • SD card drive emulation software
  • Cartridge emulation hardware
  • Built in turbo freezer
  • Built in USB SIO2PC
  • High resolution support (2x and 4x colour clock antic/gtia allowing 320x200 gtia modes and colour 80x24 text modes). Note this seems to work fairly well now but the features is still in development.
  • ADC for SIO and PBI audio input, for authentic SIO cable loading noise!
  • PAL/NTSC switchable
  • Operating system stored in on-board flash chip (no need for SD card)
  • RGB 15KHz and VGA 31KHz output
  • DVI output (via HDMI socket)
  • Svideo and composite output
  • All in a standard mini-itx form factor

The hardware has lots of capacity of additional features, for example you can expect in the next few years 65816 support.

Hi and from Me! :)

 

Adding some more "analogue" information, in this little miracle they work...

 

1. Atari Cassette players, read/write.

2. Atari Floppy Drives read/write.

3. New era SIO devices like SIO2SD, SDRIVE etc....

4. Many many original and home-brew cartridges.

5. Original joysticks, paddles, Atari and Koala pads.

6. On board FTDI ic for direct connection with PC via USB port. Aspeqt program can be used as interface. ;)

7. Ability to write the firmware directly from SD card, if Altera/Intel programmer doesn't exist.

 

And very soon the Atari OS permanently installed on it flash rom, so no SD card required to boot out of the box! ;) This is what I call 'A board with Atari Soul".

is this ready to go or some kind of kit?

Ready to go, well need to screw together the two boards and plug in the interface cable. Then (optionally) put it in a mini-itx case.

I'm glad this offer was posted to Facebook or I'd never gotten one!! I only stop by here very infrequently.

I agree. I don't have a lot of time to watch the forums and it was great to see it posted on Facebook.

11 reserved/sold (of which 3 paid). The last one is subject to some extra testing working out first.

Sounds good, I'll keep my fingers crossed and hope for the best. Alternatively, if one of your reservations doesn't complete the sale consider me on the waiting list (hopefully first on the list.) Had no idea these would go so fast! A testament to the system!

Looks like I missed out on this run...if anyone has a V2 board they would like to sell after upgrading to this one, I am interested.
