Custom programmer board is talking JTAG. I want to have a go at writing a JEDEC stream programmer. I've been using a custom binary SVF format up until now, which isn't very efficient.

Just finished modding my Neo Geo Pocket SD with the new nylon cartridge shell (with the help of some guitar plectrums & a Dremel 😂). It’s a massive improvement & recommended for anyone with the old 3D printed shells 👍 @TheRetroHQ

That's an interesting thing! Is it just FPGA or is that a hybrid CPU / FPGA part?
From concept to reality, a universal re-programmable arcade machine circuit board, for new and maybe old games. #fpga #arcade #homebrew #retrogames #jamma #intel #altera #videogame #exeter

I may have started yet another PCB project.

It's an FPGA expansion for the Sharp x68000, with 4MB of SRAM, 32MB of SDRAM, MIDI in / out, ESP32, uSD, and HDMI.

Now just deciding on whether to add miniDIN connectors for keyb / mouse conversion.

Well, it looks like this does work! 2 days of sun bathing and I am shocked at the difference! Thanks to @rhayadercompute for pointing this out to me! All that H2O2 we've wasted on these in the past! Might try the SNES next...

Looks like not all #Homebrew cartridges for #AtariLynx fit the #RaspberryPi #programmer “hat”. This is because it uses a Lynx model 1 cart connector. 😅
