HxC Floppy emulator

Is there anyone out there who actually made one of these? It sure looks very interesting
It seems to be a drag´n drop ADF´s thingy.

Well, we all bitched, then we whined, then we bitched some more, then went quiet, then moaned about costs, then bitches about why it does not need a LCD. There was talk about using cheaper chips.

I actually wanted to buy, but now its announced there not for sale, and you have to make your own
At least the finished ver looks easyier to make, which was apprantly one of the project goals.

DrF - I agree wholeheartedly.

Faerytale - no real need to, all you need is the schematic, the parts list and the FPGA (or MCU) code. Anything else is icing on the cake.

My only gripe is no .brd file, but I think I know why.. :-)

Hmm, looks very interesting. I wonder if I had the energy to make one in the future.

The google translator does a reasonable job on this page from French->English.

All your really need is in the archives though, the source is easy to follow.

the SDcard schematics and PCB layout are released, but easier to try to keep this in one thread:
