Lightning VME open Order

Post by tuxie » Mon Mar 19, 2018 8:35 pm

Hello guys,

i am very proud that i can say "we are done" the Lightning VME USB Interface is ready to order.

Features:
  • new developed in 2018 (Pakman, Tuxie, Czietz, Gaga)
  • two USB 1.1 interfaces, expandable by USB-hub
  • both ports can be used simultaneously
  • no external power supply necessary
  • even USB 2.0 devices work, but then at a reduced speed
  • currently ca. 600kb/s transfer rate in unaccelerated TT
  • also works in accelerated TT, thus further increase in performance (tested with 20MHz bus and 40MHz CPU)
  • Transferrate is customizable
  • compact design, fits in the original case of both the MegaSTE and the TT
  • plug and play - fully pluggable solution
  • central elements are a programmable Logic Device (CPLD) from Xilinx and the ISP1160 USB-Host-Controller from Philips
  • handmade, SMD in reflow process
  • triple protection of both USB ports:
  • electrostatic discharge (ESD) protection when connecting external devices
  • overcurrent protection by self-healing fuses
  • secured against twisting the USB bracket by coding and labeling
  • other interfaces, ROM port, ACSI interface and VME slot remain free
  • support real USB mice, not only with PS/2 protocol
  • finally true support of mass storage even under TOS
  • works under TOS 2.06 and 3.06, Magic 5.x and Mint
Future plans
Network driver for USB Network interfaces (tested already with upto 2.5Mbit/s)
Keyboard driver
