Matthias Posted April 24, 2003 Share Posted April 24, 2003 The Atari Jaguar Ethernet-FLASH-card Hello, after some hints about my ethernet-card project were given during the last days i thought it would be a good idea to tell you all a bit more about it. The hardware of the card offers these features: 10 MBit Ethernet based on the Crystal CS8900A chip. 8 MByte FLASH-RAM organized as two banks of 4 MB each. 2 sockets for serial Eeproms. The first bank of the FLASH-RAM holds the control-software, while the second bank is intented to be used as an Atari FLASH-card substitution. After a reset the card has access to a 93c86-type (2048 bytes) serial Eeprom. This makes it compatible with new CD-based games for example. To make it compatible with older software which is only able to use a 93c46-type (128 bytes) serial Eeprom, the control-software of the card allows to switch between both desired Eeprom-types. The control-software of the card currently offers these possibilities: CD-Bypass with MemoryTrack-BIOS MemoryTrack-Manager Webserver including TinyFTP BJL-loader Adam Dunkels' internet-enabled operating system called Contiki Here is a picture of the new MemoryTrack-manager: A small amount of cards of the current PCB-generation is produced and already in use by some developers. The feedback and help coming from these developers will allow to design the next card-generation which will hopefully be the last prototype-generation.
