Topic: MEGA65

Has anyone checked out the open source MEGA65 project?

The dev kits are no longer available but you can get it running on the Nexys 4 board which is currently on clearance for $213 USD.

The custom boards do have an Artix-7 200T as apposed to a 100T but it does currently fit on the Nexys 4.

Re: MEGA65

yes I've been following it for a while, looks cool.
It's not clear to me if they encourage other platforms to run their core? It will certainly run on Replay2.

Re: MEGA65

Paul was the one who recommended the discounted Nexys 4 on their official Facebook page so I think it's safe to say they do encourage other platforms. It would be great to have it working on the Replay2.

Re: MEGA65

Ah excellent. I'll take a look and reach out to them when time permits. Thanks.

I noticed you're the author of the m6522.vhdl file used in the MEGA65 project so you're technically already part of it!
