candle Posted April 10, 2009 Share Posted April 10, 2009 I wonder if there is need for another production run of VBXE graphics adapter for 8 bit atari Although names says XE it can be used in any atari having ANTIC/GTIA and FREDDY chips on board for FREDDY-less machines clock divider must me used VBXE 2 is compatible with previously released v1.2 and only few thing were changed - ANTIC chip is located on board in DIP2IDC connector adapter, so vbxe can be removed in any point of time - no soldering required - VBXE Core boot time (time to load soft-core into the FPGA chip, and enable RGB output after power-on) decreased from 6.5 sec to 0.9 sec - board dimensions decreased from 72x60mm to 66x44mm - 14mhz generator circuit was included on board, so there is no additional clock generator module placed near FREDDY chip FX core programmers manual (translated by Drac030 from Polish) VBXE 2 board composite printout for reference VBXE 1.2 (under printout) compared to VBXE 2.0: prototype should be ready till 25 of april, and production run should start by the end of april cost of ready board is not know yet, but should be under $100 (this is rought estimate, more exact price should be know till 25 of april) Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
