ST FPGA GLUE Development

Post by Icky » Sun Feb 09, 2020 7:50 am

Yesterday I prepped my DEV ST motherboard for development of the GLUE chip similar to the MMU and Blitter FPGA work we have been working on. In addition we have created an FPGA Development section on the forum for all the FPGA projects viewforum.php?f=80

Below is a picture of the mother board with the GLUE and MMU socketed and able to test with original chips using plug in @exxos funky adaptors. @PaulJ and @PhilC bet this picture reminds you of the towers on the ALPHA.

Using the FPGA Dev Kit boards with buffer board combo as in the MMU thread the plug-in FPGA combo just fits with the case peg, bit of a tight fit, not that the top case would ever fit on top of this configuration :)

Now this board is good to do all FPGA testing but ideally I would like to get an H4 setup for such an environment but that is a later stage/project once we have the MMU and GLUE firmware in a better state. You may notice the Blitter socket is slightly different and am going to change that to the same header / jumper combo.

I bet @exxos is dying of envy. :poke: :coolpics:
