I wanted to show you to my latest project today.
Currently I am working on a clone of the Datel PC Action Replay card.
I was fascinated by the card when LGR showed it. If you haven't seen the video yet, check it out. It is really worth seeing!
The project has been with me for a while now and the card is now functional.
It is compatible with the original drivers and firmware.
A huge thank you to Rio444. He was always on hand to offer advice and assistance with questions of any kind about the Altera CPLD.
I am currently putting together the final revision of the card.
I am very happy to receive suggestions of any kind (color, name, what ever). Let me know what you think. 😃
Here are the pictures of the various stages of development:
This is revision 2. Almost complete. The final revision will be smaller.
This is the first revision. At first the plan was to use the AMD PLDs, but I quickly got off of that.
They are super sensitive, not readily available, and inconvenient to program. Simply unsuitable for a quick trial and error.
This is the development board. My Altera CPLD development board is on it. So I can quickly use it in other projects in the future.
The only thing missing is the controller. I would love to have the same case as the original.
Unfortunately, I am not particularly keen on creating CAD models.
