Module ESP8266 without TF on Amiga

Post by kulamario » Sun Apr 12, 2020 6:59 pm

Welcome
Motivated by the owners of TF330 have the ability to use the internet via WiFi
I made a schematic and board for ESP8266 without using TF
As I understand the system must be connected to serial port not to parallel
I also read that the port in Amiga has only 20mA so it is not suitable for powering the system
therefore a USB port is added
Unfortunately the system is not checked due to the lack of parts in the house

Oh. Ok. well personally I would use DB9 to reduce the PCB size. Then use a gender changer. I'd also consider not bothering putting the chip on it but make an ESP header. That way when extra super duper versions come out your wont need to respin your board.

If the 3 pin header is for programming vs usage then you may want to find a way to power cycle it if you havent thought of that already.

EDIT: Also you can get power from the floppy connector...

DB9 + Header is also way easier to assemble and give the board wider appeal.

Consider a 5V 0.1" header on there for anyone who doesnt want to bother with USB power.

What I wanted to achieve is a uniform module that we connect to the amiga when I used DB9 we would have to use adapters
With the addition of pin header to the power supply no problem can be added

My script is for roadshow only.

For anything else you need to do this loooooong process.

To prove your hardware is working i would install roadshow and then run my script. Also Roadshow uses less RAM (i think) than most.
