FPGA Replay Board
« on: December 30, 2010, 08:44:39 AM »
Hello to Mike J and Yaqube.
 
I know you guys are probably swamped in work and out shopping mega-pacs of fireworks already, but could you see if you could publish images or youtube clips of the Replay board itself and when operating and maybe also with the 060 daughterboard installed ?
 
We would be glued to the monitors, even at 23:59:59 at 31.12.2010 if you do this....screw the fireworks :-D
 
 
Merry X-Mas and a hapyp new year!!!

Frankly speaking there is not much to show right now. Everything has been delayed slightly.

I should get the new revision of the board shortly after Mike has verified the design. The daughter board should be ready in January.

In the meantime Tobias has managed to implement missing bitfield instructions. It has increased the core size to 75% of the FPGA.

We are still working on fixing minor problems. Finally we've got the RNC Copy Lock games to work.

Cheers for the info.  Sounds like things are just about done with th exception of a few morer tweaks.

Just out of interest, will/can the AGA core be ported to the C-One?
A2000, A3000, 2 x A1200T, A1200, A4000Tower & Mediator, CD32, VIC-20, C64, C128, C128D, PET 8032, Minimig & ARM, C-One, FPGA Arcade... and AmigaOne X1000.

What will be present on the upcoming daughter board?

The current Minimig AGA core needs circa 25K logic cells. The Cyclone-III on the C-One extender has 24.6K LCs but some more are required for another CPU core acting as ARM MCU replacement.
Actually it's very hard to use more than 95% of the FPGA due to limited routing resources. It's hard to tell for sure but with clever coding it might be possible.

I will post more info when I have the board on my desk running.

@ Yacube
Count me in for a daughterboard ;-)

@yaqube, 75% of the Spartan-3E 1200 ..?

75% is a lot, and makes me wonder about the space for the AGA core etc..

75% of the Spartan-3E 1600

75% is taken by: Minimig AGA core (with 24-bit scandoubler) + SDRAM DDR memory controller + TG68.C (V0.40) + dual CPU caches + 16-bit DMA AHI sound card module + 128 channel embeded logic analyzer

I am waiting for the replacement LDOs to arrive to verify the problem with power off has been fixed. They got delayed by the Christmas holidays, but I should have them Monday. I'll then ship the board to Yacube.

I have been working to improve timing and area in the design so the compile time is reduced.

Trust me, we are not hanging around here...

Isn't the fpgaarcade equipped with an Spartan-3E 1200 ..?

That sounds better ;)

From what I recall, the 1200 got replaced with a 1600... It's somewhere in the very long thread.

Yes but right now the priority is the chipset and CPU compatibility.

This is great news Mike and Yaqube. We love your dedication and the fact that you spend so much time on this project. I do hope your will make some money on this awell.
