Re: Project: HDMI/DVI out for STFM

Great stuff! :cheers:

If the pixel shift only happens between power ups, does it matter really ? I think most would opt to put up with it rather than lose the left border totally.

There is still the option to tap into Vsync and Hsync on the system, if that would help ?

Re: Dropping sales concerns

I think you'd be doing well with a few more 'special' projects in store. Like you said you mostly focus on maintenance hardware, which is good to produce a steady baseline sales. For instance a lot of people want bus speeders for their Falcons. You could recreate the Phantom and the special Phantom...

Re: Future PSU designs

The UPSs at work (Oxford, UK) have seen over-voltages up in the 290v range and brown-outs of about 170v. Oh, and then there are those sub-second almost zero volt to over-volt transients. I'm sure the latter are the killers (especially for UPSs!). The voltage here seems to be more like 250V and can ...

Re: V2.5 BOOSTER CURRENT PROTOTYPE STATUS

I have been looking at options for flash and ROM... Basically 55ns 8Mb 3.3V is the only real option for the "fast ram" bank. 3.3V flash 8Mb 55ns. 2Mb 3.3V 10ns for the ROM shadow. It's the smallest and cheapest set of SRAM options. Problem is a huge bank of IO converters.. plus I have space limitati...

Re: Future PSU designs

I have been wondering about the possibility of main spikes damaging power supply circuits.. So I attempted to do some simulations.. The crappy simulation model has V1 as a simple 15VAC since wave gen (simulate transformer secondary). The actual resistance measured and the transformer is 1 ohms, so a...

Re: Dropping sales concerns

At some point in time all surviving retro machines will have been upgraded. Just saying ;) True. Its actually one reason why I was working more towards servicing of machines and keeping them running, rather than upgrades.. As obviously if there are no working machines, no one will be buying upgrade...

Re: STE V1.5 32MHz BOOSTER - STATUS

I've ordered 3 of the final revision boards. Which are the new dualtos boards & plug in booster boards and stencils. If all goes well, they will be 2 sets of boards which will be up for sale once tested out. I don't know what price these will be yet, but likely more expensive than the current boards...
