Passes the memory tests and everything. So, i'm pretty new to atari let alone 8-bit... Looking for some pointers. I was going to orde...

Re: Can anyone identify this part?

Now that I think about it, could it simply be a power rail? I mean that's some real funky arrangement of closely packed boards there... what if the yellow 'stuff' is just insulation around a pretty high current power rail?

Re: Can anyone identify this part?

Maybe some detail about the material would help... Is the yellow material solid? Spongy? It isn't really clear in the picture. Also the 'wrap' around it... is that just empty tape or very thin enamelled wire? Also is there continuity from one side of the component to the other? (on the metal bar sec...

Re: CPLD Alternatives for the Future

Do you have the source (PDN) for that information? In fact, end of last year there was a PCN that they will change something in the packaging process of the XC9500XL starting in 2020, implying that Xilinx would still produce these CPLDs, then. https://www.xilinx.com/support/documentation/customer_n...

Re: The TF536 arrives

You could also use the 68030 CPU with TQFP Package like in TT or Falcon used, ... in my TT it is running with 54Mhz.. so its overclockable. What i saw is that the cpu in TQFP Package is overclockable. Its a ceramic package.. The RC and RP 030 PGA chips are pretty overclockable too. The 33's easily ...
