Re: Boosting STFM: 16MHz bus, 64MHz Shifter

hold on, how did we get from extra res to extra colours as well ??? All horisontal resolutions become double :) low: 320x200x16 -> 640x200x16 medium: 640x200x4 -> 1280x200x4 high: 640x400x2 -> 1280x400x2 (I don*t think the higher resolution should lower RAM speed btw, the MMU always interleaves CPU...

So I'll just leave this here ...

Re: Boosting STFM: 16MHz bus, 64MHz Shifter

IMG_20171011_185241.jpg Alright, so a closer inspection of the clock LA shows something that's indeed in the spec sheet for the sync counter - it syncs to the falling edge of the clock pulses. I would guess this might be the reason why there seems to be wait states forced for RAM access - it's at 1...

The GB6 version is old, without the new algorithm, and I think it's comparing to a system with blitter which this machine doesn't have. Also slightly difficult to read ;)

Pure genius exxos to suggest the sync binary counter.

Re: STFM case remake

FWIW I have a ~€2000 3D printer and I would not be terribly happy with the output quality for a case. It would need a lot of sanding down to get to an acceptable surface.

I've thought about splitting an STL and printing parts to glue together. Would be a lot of glue.

It is also possible that your 1772 may not actually work at 16 MHz... You're welcome to send it to me to testing if it helps..
This is my guess. Is it a VL-model? (That's what my Megas have)

Re: Boosting STFM: 16MHz bus, 64MHz Shifter

Thanks, will look into dtack.

In the meantime, here are the clocks sampled at CPU, DMA and Floppy. I did a few runs with detection level at 1.0V up to 2.8V to try to figure out if maybe they were weak (still waiting for that scope).

Re: Boosting STFM: 16MHz bus, 64MHz Shifter

A bit of shooting in the dark at the moment, but: 33R added to 8MHz (for GLUE, WD etc) - no change 10k pullup added to DMA databus - no change I can very repeatedly and predictably keep pressing ESC to get more or less correct data read from the disk. Very seldomly (but it happens) the size or filen...

I would suggest you get a 74F161 as well.
Now ordered.

Add a 1K resistor (pull up) on CPU /DTACK and /AS see if that helps. Also add a sil array on the DMA databus.
Thanks for the suggestions :)

(Also, I just placed an order for a scope ... will arrive in ~three weeks)
