  1. The retro FPGA is just going to half to do as I doubt you could get something with the world going crazy. Besides it just needs to be as good as what the snes computer?
  2. I am looking at this stuff after the sinclair Zx computer video. It is interesting that you could custom chips to do more like a pre system on a chip.
  3. So back in the day there was this company that made semi custom chips. It was preset with the components but you drew the traces on the chip to make the circuits you wanted on the VLSI chip. This seems like a real missed concept as it could really solve some problems. Though FPGAs and ASICs seem to have filled the gap. But I wonder how this compares to those?
  4. I Kind of wish the 65816(W65C265S )? that could address 16mb ram was made into a laptop. A modern 16 bit GEOS and dos 3.1. Though would something like a 486GX be needed for dos and add the amiga aga? And do do commodore and amiga things as well maybe. Duel processors maybe working for different task and io and peripherals, monitor out, usb, and or serial, keyboard mouse and floppy and SD card for hd. And maybe maximite 2 basic programming Sizes, C and petscii or ascii and all the programming stuff from both? Though making an soc with AGA all on one chip could that even be done with dma? 3.6864mhz 65816 16mb 45mhz max sram 486gx 33mhz a color lcd screen? Integrated speakers key board track pad. sd usb hdmi, other? https://www.amazon.com/Qahesnv-Controller-HJ080IA-01E-EJ080NA-04C-HE080IDW1/dp/B09TNWMYCX/ref=sr_1_74?crid=YG3FM4NMGJ06&keywords=lcd+13"+driver+board&qid=1648246287&s=electronics&sprefix=lcd+13+driver+board%2Celectronics%2C101&sr=1-74
  5. Finally Dos 3.1 and geos 16 bit or something else? Just spamming a rough outline for a little retro like laptop. That may run dos or hybrid commodore computer? Ideally to run basic, and ascII and dos and run a mix of things?
  6. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Original_Chip_Set Idealy just use the old amiga chip set for video? Though a pie zero could take over a lot of stuff.
  7. For ram what would be best static or other? 2mb sram at 32 by 64k or should it be other profile? Or the smaller profile ram? https://www.mouser.com/ProductDetail/Cypress-Semiconductor/CY7C1329H-133AXC?qs=k2piNBSag38kfh1mIVG2lw%3D%3D https://www.mouser.com/ProductDetail/ISSI/IS62WVS2568GBLL-45NLI-TR?qs=F5EMLAvA7IDi1b3lWvG69A%3D%3D
  8. I found this and this may be what may work best with a small basic MCU? Or a modern 65816 mcu?https://www.westerndesigncenter.com/wdc/documentation/W65C265QBX.pdf Or https://ww1.microchip.com/downloads/en/DeviceDoc/doc2593.pdf
  9. What is that like adding a maximite 2 board for the cx16? As an accelerator card seconary processor to cary the load of larger programs like an operating system? Though the maximite board may be better for the SD card?
  10. I like the idea of streamlining and adding new power options.
  11. Diamond transistors or DML looks promising. But many times more expensive than silicon. https://www.diamondmw.com/diamond-microwave-devices-diamond-transistor-technology/technology/
    Great pacman like game but with a bit different theme.
    ? It didn't run on the old i3 at home.
  12. I tried soldering a radio, and I though hey why don't I put all high gain tansistors in it, oops I got the wrong transistors in it so shows what I know. First I got the resistors and caps , coils and transformers, then the diodes and transistor but it was just a bust. I feel like a complete idiot. And just hell no on the surface mount stuff.
  13. Well For thanks giving we use to have family over. I miss the molasis cookies and crescent rolls my grandma would cook.
  14. It is not the same with the same actors playing in it. I mean Dan Acroid was a legend.
  15. What if there was a retro laptop that used a 32 bit version of the improved 65C02 with flash memory, more ram, 64k cashe?? Though this may have already been made for some palm computers. http://vlsi-concepts.com/v65C32.html
  16. I wonder if they would have tried a mega65 asic System on a chip but with more ram and memory and a mini hard drive or flash card and floppy or mini cdr and a GEOS rom with all the usual apps, and internet port and geos web browser.
    That was a good little slide show.
