Re: FRAM 8MB Upgrade Alternate Ram ...

We all love the Atari, some of us can design and build but we also have personal life.. which put the Atari stuff on the back burner (like my 68020/68030 STE/MSTE card).

Re: Falcon Upgrades

MiNT has tar and dd (and probably gzip but apparently not installed on my aranym setup) .. the issue is more the tape drive kernel driver that is not available. so you won't have a /dev/st0 device to access the tape drive

Re: CPLD Alternatives for the Future

The Atmel are not bad devices.. but the free tool(s) are absolute crap. Xilinx has a big advantage there and that's why I moved from the Atmel to the Xilinx XC9500XL series as there is no free VHDL tool for the Atmel ATF15xx and WinCUPL only supports GAL level instructions (no VHDL either) and is no...
