Re: WireWrapping a 88-DSK RAM board :) Atmel code anyone?

oh that's helpful, i guess i did not recognize the files...
( more of a hardware geek than software, did not realize what those were... :) )

I have the atmel software on my computer, i should load them and see what i get. :)
( I never use it really, :) )

Thank you Jeff :)

WireWrapping a 88-DSK RAM board :) Atmel code anyone?

Hi there I was wondering if anyone had the .hex file for the atmega8515 on the 88-DSK RAM board. I am hoping to wirewrap a board for my 8800micro. I should have purchased one with my 8800 kit, but I wasnt sure i wanted to mess around with CP/M on it. ( I have a commodore 128 and apple //e for that.....

Re: 16K replica 1 plus rom image?

Okie Doke, All done. Worked on the first try... :) it was an exciting moment when the / appeared and the @ dropped down to the next line. Now I just have to mount it some where, add a power switch (2 pin header already soldered in for that). I have not hard wired a home built computer since i built ...

Re: Is there a guide to using the external serial port?

I had some success with the ftdi and connecting directly to pin 21 and 22 and grn, i could see there was plenty of action on the serial pins, but nothing on the serial port expansion board... I am starting to think none of my "nul modem cables" are actually nul modem cables... so i am pret...

Re: Is there a guide to using the external serial port?

I found this very informative blog with information on the serial port, and based on what I have read, I'm thinking there may be an issue with my serial card... I double checked the soldering and it looks totally fine, no blobs, nothing sick, just nice shiny solder joints... Thank you Jeff Tranter's...

Guide to using the external serial - Jeff Tranter's blog

i tried starting the 8800 micro without the keyboard, which dissables the pocket terminal portion of the 8800micro, so i thought would enable the serial port connected to the expansion port... i know there is no hand shaking but what do we set the baud rate to? I'm using putty, have the serial port ...

Re: 16K replica 1 plus rom image?

Thank you :) this is my first time wire wrapping, so i was afraid to put the chips too close, as I would find it more difficult to do the wiring... I think if i had to do it again, i would put them closer... You dont think there will be an issue do you? I think the Kim-1 board is pretty spread out.....

Re: 16K replica 1 plus rom image?

I started wirewrapping my Briel Replica 1plus the other day, (first time wire wrapping...) much nicer than point to point wiring especially when doing address and data busses when you know you will have at least 3 wires coming off the same soldering point. i bought 8 colours of wirewrap 30 gage soli...

Re: Just Purchased an Altair 8800micro :)

Okie doke, kit arrived in good shape, a few parts missing ( I emailed Mr. Briel about it, but he is currently moving so i think he is out of commission for a week or so, so not sure I will get a reply in the near future. ) I ended up finding some parts in my parts drawer ( hurray 12 matching 0.1uf d...
