Hi Guys,

I recently added an update to my development blog here:

https://ianstedman.wordpress.com/201...some-progress/

A busy workload has slowed me down in recent weeks but work does still progress. I have also identified and am working around a few gotchas in the hardware design.

I try and post only when I have relevant news, the blog has 5 updates this year, compared to 1 minor update for my website.

Keep the questions, ideas and suggestions coming, I do read them.

Regards,

Ian

@Akira

Doesn't the CD32 already have one with the AUX port? or are you thinking PS2 type affair?

Hi, without having to read the whole thread, basically i would need (when/if available) Kippers board and then Stedys board and this will give me a combo board for RGB output, fast ram 8mb? (Included?) And ide CF connection?

Sounds great! Another buyer interested here!

Hi,

Sorry for the lack of updates, life has been a bit hectic of late. I've not made the as much progress as I intended due to other commitments but things are improving. To allow mure design/debug time, I will be suspending all existing Amiga sales/adaptor orders from the 1st January. The plan is to spend 2-3 months finishing the Hermes development and to make a few updates to existing designs. Looking back at 2014, I have spent a lot of time building/testing my existing adaptor board and not enough designing.

I have started prototyping an Amiga product tester for Hermes and my existing ATX adaptors and floppy adaptors. This will help future work.

If there is anyone reading this who is familiar with CPLD/FPGA design and they could look at why the IDE68K design does not work with the MC68020, it would save me some time. I suspect it is down to the different states signals are active.

If I don't post again, may I wish you all a Happy 2015.

Ian

I'm interested too

I would like to use my FMV at the same time though, like command line to the MPG hardware for example... doable? :-)

Absolutely not. The FMV uses the same slot. You will have to put it in a box or sell it.
