SE/30 & Micron Xceed & clear plastic goodie

Recommended Posts

Yeah!  Absolutely magnificent!  Nearing the epoch of SE/30 goodness!  Have you tried the Micron Virtual Video on it?  It surprises me everytime I enable it just how silky smooth it works.

any chance you could make this available as a shared project on osh park?

 

Is there an easy way to do that without having to sign up with them? Only way to upload something gets me to their PCB order thing unless I am not seeing some hidden Share-your-Design-here-button.

 

Cooked up a V2 already that does not need any wire jumpers and is completely single layer so everyone can make those easily at home:

I can send the files to everyone who wants them.

Nice work! I'd be interested in the design files for my resolution hack project (PM me?).

 

I'm curious about the voltage level of the video signal when it arrives from the Micron to this board. Is it more similar to VGA (0.7V) or to the TTL video (5V)? Are you able to measure it with a scope? Thinking ahead to what will be needed to adapt other video sources.

The Micron documents say that the card outputs 0-1V which then is amplified on the neck board to 0-30V.

So this could probably used to get a VGA signal to show at least something on the screen.

You'll have to sign up with them yeah - could just use dummy info I suppose. It really is the best way of getting the design out there though - you can order pcb's shipped worldwide for a couple of bucks - which is way easier and cheaper than making them at home.

 

From what I gather, it has to be submitted as either:

  • an Eagle .brd board file
  • a KiCAD .kicad_pcb board file
  • a .zip file containing Gerber CAM files

Plus there are some guidelines they like you to follow

 

I've never uploaded a design before - but I've ordered a few PCBs of interesting products from people who have made their designs available (mainly for game consoles) with good results.
