The long wait is over!

I have a working sound card using a CPLD instead of the P82C611. It works in my PS/2 Model 50Z and it seems partially functional in the Model 95 I borrowed (the card ID gets read successfully by the BIOS but the machine can't boot due to issues with the floppy controller.)

Git repo here: https://github.com/schlae/plaid-bib-cpld

If you build the card and get it working in your MCA bus machine, please let me know so I can add it to the compatibility list.

Enjoy!

Although I have no PS/2 systems all this work you've done is simply amazing, kudos TubeTimeUS!!!!!
In essence it makes finding a nice PS/2 system a viable option if someone wants to actually use the system and not just display it on a shelf.

Thats very good news and very good work. 👍

I have a Model 80 PS/2 and I'am interested to get one of the Plaid Bib cards. Though my soldering skills are rather basic.

Is someone going to produce some cards (ready to plug)?
I would compensate the efforts.

Here is some update from me. Eric sent me a Plaid Bib CPLD Edition and (after 11 days being stuck at customs) it finally arrived today.
It works in my Model 80. The only very minor issue I noticed is that sometimes after exiting Windows for Workgroups 3.11 the card gives loud noise until reinitialized. However this might be some software issue and not the cards fault at all.

Here are some pics:

It is the small card without shield.
