I have just released the first public version of another project of mine. It is an Arduino-based PlayStation to Amiga/CD32/C64 controller adapter.

It is packed with features, like different button mappings, programmable combos, mouse mode, C64 mode, etc. Please refer to the documentation to find out more.

As usual it's 100% open, both in hardware and software.

ENJOY!

Wow - cool project! Thanks for releasing it as Open Hardware/Software

I'm going to order some boards for myself and give it a go.

As promised, here are the final information for parts and pics needed for the 100% A600 4MB Fast Ram Expansion:

Nylon Double-pass Pad High Straight Through Column Plastic Washer Round Hole Spacer
M3X7X8mm (8mm = high)

Cross Round Head 304 stainless steel self-tapping with Padded Screws With Collar Pad Washer Silver Fastener Screw
M2.3 x 12 mm

It's fits perfectly (don't forget the socket has to sanded down!). You don't have to remove the mainboard, just screw it like the ACA620ec. No more worries about fixation

Sukkopera, if you want to add my information and pics to your github...feel free to do so

Ive got a few of the 4/8MB boards made, stuck the CPLD on and tried to program it with one of the clone USB blasters....as per your suggestion that model hangs at 47% (bugger!!)! Ive ordered the suggested type..awaiting its arrival.

Anyone have a reliable link to a RAM chip that is suitable for the board?

For the A500/A600 Fastram Expansion you'll find here a memory compatibility list. Btw all SOJ-42 16 Mbit (1M×16) DRAMs should be compatible.

About the altera cplds i've still problems with some to program with my USB blaster. I don't know why, in total i can't program 40% out of 100%.

Yes, I really don't know what's up with that USB Blaster. Mine even programmed like 10 chips, then decided it would ALWAYS get stuck between 47 and 49%. Very weird. Anyway the bigger one works like a charm.

I will add some more chips to the compatibility list as soon as they are tested, but so far we haven't found a single one that is NOT working.

@retrogamer: Not from me at least. Feel free to look around, but please do not buy from anyone who's selling this at more than 30-35€, they are just scammers.
