"Complete" as was described on the initial post on this thread. I not include some enclosure for now because of summer holidays here. After the 1st September I will discuss this with a local craft store. In the mean time if someone have CAD experience as to design one, it will be valuable. :idea:

Yes, interested, also.

 

But an important question for me -- what video standard will this output? "HDMI" -- but what flavor? NTSC, 480i? 720p? Need to know this to find a suitable converter so I can use my S-video (unless you provide a conversion to S-video).

480p59.97 ntsc

576p50 pal

Note that on a few monitors we have audio issues over hdmi, but you can of course couple it with external speakers if you run into that.

2 more devices will be built, one for Gandor and one for orpheuswaking.

If there is anyone else, let me know with pm.

Another video question -- is the VGA connector on the back active, or is that actually used as DVI. (That would make conversion to S-video easier than HDMI, I believe.) I've been watching Nir's videos on the Eclaire -- really impressive.

The HDMI connector used also as DVI video output. The VGA connector it will act as VGA 31Khz, Scart / VGA 15Khz and S video with the addition of an additive board, placed in expansion port behind it.

Add-on board available now or at a future date? (I'm guessing later...)

I assembled and check with success the first ever made today. :thumbsup:

It look to work at least in VGA. :-D

I thinking later this year to design a add-on board, to support the original XEGS keyboard, which so many members asked here.
Original schematic diagram exist for this, thanks to foft. :thumbsup:

Drop me a line before you make this one, got some other ideas:)

Hope it will be adaptable to regular XL/XE keyboard connections. The Tynemouth Software XL/XE --> USB adapter is apx. $80 (with shipping). That's pretty steep for an adapter.

Hi all,

 

yesterday my eclaireXL mini arrived and today I had the opportunity for a first test.
It works great! Even one of the Turbo Freezer prototypes works :-)
Attached two pictures.

See you

Sven

Before Mark answer on this, I must say that the original VBXE developers not interested for something like this.

 

 

Was there an answer for this? As lemiel asked, would there be some licensing issues that prevent it or could it simply be that there isn't space left in the FPGA to implement the core?

I dont think the vbxe design is public.

That thing is so darn cute. Now all it needs is a sexy little case to go with it.

 

BTW, what a fantastic job that foft and santosp have done, and where they have taken the eclaireXL technology. Quite the achievement for sure :thumbsup: .

Maybe is time for us to open a public thread as to invite people who have the skills to design such a box?! ;)

I wonder if there are 3D printing design forums full of people who might like designing cases for fun...

 

Actually someone who bought one of the v2 fix boards was going to trying making one for that, will ask where he got to.

 

Who designed the sdrive max case? Perhaps I am ask if he/she would be willing to help.

I like this way of thinking, and it certainly makes a lot of sense to tap into people with these kinds of skills. I know a lot of us here on AA tend to be jack of all trades, but why not find someone who specializes in and enjoys 3D modeling and printing to really take it to the next level, as has been suggested. That person might not be an Atari person, nor have a love for vintage computers in general. It doesn't matter when it comes to being the best custom case designer ever. So hopefully someone knows of such a person that would love to create something new just for the fun of it.
