I have added a blitter to my 520ST. In fact, the PCB's arrived from china just today so I was quite excited to see that it actually worked! Of course, the sane thing to do would be to just get an STE, but I like this machine - I've had it since 1985. Thank you Exxos for stocking and selling loose B...

Re: BLITTER IN A ST

Got it!

Artik-wroc, my colleague from Atari.org.pl forum, sent me an article from ST-Computer Issue form November 1988:

and screenshot below.
Based on them, some years ago he did BLiTTER's daughterboard for short ST.

Re: Using an RA8876 (LCD controller) as a Hi-res graphics card?

nice, we can use then the BLiTTER to copy data to the data register.
I have one concern about the price:

$68 only for that module and probably should be added/buy an interface between ST and that module

Everything will have to go through the registers of the RA8876, but then high level drawing operations can be implemented using only a few writes.
what about bitmap graphics? is it possible to push it somehow to the RA8876 RAM? and how fast?
