Well volunteered Exxos. I don't have one to even blow up so count me out of this one.
Yeah, those chips are hard to find and expensive.. so leave that one to me guys.. I have couple STE's I can steal one out of if needs be... not fair on you guys to blow a £20-£30 chip up!

Re: Icky - Progress

Well when they added different form factor machines like the MEGA it was Atari MEGA ST. So may be you could use - Atari EXXOS ST EST ;) Well a long way off needing a name yet anyway. Need to mod this current board to death yet.... oh at some point I mentioned built in 1.44 floppy support, it only n...

Re: DMA port "update" ideas..

Now that will depend on the DMA chip you have - BAD DMA or a NASTY DMA :lol: IMP - pure evil DMA... I guess its possible the drive could run a bit faster.. but its bottlenecked by ST-RAM anyway... I mean peters special drive can run twice as fast as ultrasatan with special hardware and software, so...

Re: Icky - Progress

Yeah but version 2 we start all over again. Exxos would like to put us through all the pain again :) Yes, it won't be any time soon.. To much work and things to fix/update yet. Need to leave this one as museum piece for 30 years from now. I can see the plaque in front of it now: "The Exxos STF Rema...

Re: DMA port "update" ideas..

OK so literally a internal port then... I've no idea what addons are for it, but makes sense to add it. I was also half plotting of adding a full DMA header row to access all the DMA pins.. thought was to hi-jack the databus and bypass the DMA chip itself.. but not looking in that direction really n...

Careful not to blow your GLUE chip like the problem Forgottenmyname had at testing the Blitter.
Yep, I don't have any spare chips at all if I blow any of these up :roll: But needs to be tried out.. I don't see any errors anywhere in the diagram.. but never know.

Re: Hissing and whistling in the STe audio output

Think I am gonna have to look at that pdf when I am actually awake.. I mean pin 1 on the STE is left floating when its got a clock in, you just don't leave gates floating... I guess you could try a 10K to 5V or 0V on pin 1 and see if that changes anything.. need to look at it more though.. I'd also ...
