Back to school, and Atari die shots….

Back to school, and Atari die shots….

Well, summer is now over and it’s time to crack on with the FPGA work. I’m still busy repairing the last few boards, and work is well under way on the daughterboard and new production run. I’ve been chatting with a couple of guys over on atari-forum...
Server update

Server update

I’m starting the work on updating the website and servers. The developers SVN will be off line for a few moments today. /Mike

Forum down (Now fixed)

You may have noticed the forum is down. This appears to be a problem with the hosting company after an update. I have run a full back now and we are working on it …. … And it’s all ok again. Happy Friday!

Hardware stuff

The forum is really the place to see regular updates, but I thought it was time for a summary here. The Amiga code is pretty stable. Work is being done to add RTG interlaced modes and increase CPU performance further, but the main focus at the moment is on hardware....

More boards on final test

Taking a quick break from the Amiga core development to ship some hardware. Workbench is full, this is the overflow storage! (These are all going to the distributors. If you were on the original list please email me. I also have boards at reduced cost for developers...

Amiga RTG (Graphics card) working and in Beta

The latest Amiga AGA core is in beta with support for P96 compatible RTG. It also includes a hardware blitter engine which is used by the card driver to speed up window movements.   There is still work to do increasing the pixel clock, but it’s nice to see...

Amiga roadmap and DDR memory fun

Time for another update. Sometimes it seems things go a bit quiet here – while it’s true September is a busy month with my other (money earning) activities, there has been a lot going on with Replay. I’ve just finished the tweaks for the DDR...

Libs and Pacmans

I’ve been working on moving the existing (old) cores like Scramble and Asteroids over to the new Replay framework. While I was at it, I tidied up the library wrapper which has made the “plumbing” a lot simpler. I’ve started documentation and...

Back from holiday

Right, returned from a brief holiday. I’ve moved all the CAD projects and libraries over to my internal SVN repository. This was necessary to sync the work between the workstation and laptop, so I can get the daughter board and AGA debug board out to production....

Survived the worlds biggest party

Well, just about. Glastonbury was amazing, but now I’ve sobered up, flown home and I have been busy testing boards all day. I received an update from the Mist guys (we work on the 68K CPU together) and have updated the Amiga core. Still some issues, but moving...

Taking a short break

I’m off to a music festival in England (Glastonbury) today and I’ll be out of email contact for a few days. You can see some pictures from last year here : http://www.glastonburyfestivals.co.uk/gallery/ Back to shipping boards, finishing this website and...

Testing continues

I’ve been trying to catch up on the backlog of boards. A number of developer boards have gone out this week. The boards below have all finished functional test and are going onto soak test, final inspection and then shipping to distributors. (sorry for the poor...

Server move

The website has been moved to a new host provider, so we can provide additional services (like web SVN etc). Please check the forum for news and updates – the website will be getting an update as well 😉

New website on line

A new website went live, along with a forum. Unfortunately, I spent so much time in the Forum posting updates, I forgot to update the main website….   Meanwhile, testing continues :  

Ready to ship

Price is 199Euro for the version without composite/SVHS output, 229Euro with. Replay features : Very large FPGA with high IO pin count for expansion 64 MByte of DDR memory Six layer PCB for high performance and stability 24 bit HD DAC with DVI / HDMI / VGA and legacy...

Production boards complete

Some pictures of the production process and boards. The boxes have just arrived and everything should be packed and shipped before the end of the week. Note, the boards have not been cleaned yet.   Front Back   Boxes!

USB interface

As the last entry was in May last year, I think some update is in order. Simply, work went crazy and I moved flat in the summer last year – all of which conspired to push out the Replay board development sadly. I have got the production process in place now, and...

Pricing

Well, I said I would not update this “old” version of the site any more, but as I haven’t had time to bring up the nice new one yet completely, one more update is necessary. The Replay boards have now obtained FCC and CE approval and are starting to...
