Vampire 600 V1: Vampire 600 PCB redesign
Posted on Sunday, March 10 2013 @ 13:17:14 UTC by majsta

This is the latest redesign of Vampire 600 FPGA accelerator. In next few days production will start. So whats new here? You may think that this is the same only some components are placed different. But is it? Most important thing here that now JTAG have over voltage protection and ESD protection and from now on this is a proper development board. Another thing added is PS/2 mouse connector and with cable extender you can mount it anywhere you want. Reason why I used standard PS/2 connector instead some header is that someone can create some specific cable and sell it and again exploit your retro enthusiasm. The same thing is done regarding one more feature Wireless module and this module is compatible with Arduino board modules found at 1 USD so again you are protected from someone wanted to charge you lot of money just because you are buying something Amiga and retro related. Third feature added is SPI connector and from there you can connect anything you want. So stop thinking that this is just Accelerator board.

Hey looks very good. Did you already get some benchmark about speed?
Please post pictures of board working.
When are you planning to sell them?
Keep it up, please!

I have old benchmarks published on this website. but since I didn't receive new boards yet I can't say much more about performance. But this new version should have more than 10 times faster performance than old design. I already published videos and pictures from working version and you should try to search this website. This new version will be for sale soon maybe this month or so but it will be difficult for me to produce many boards because demand for something like this is high so I will put reservations for first batch. So for now I m not planing to produce many boards because I don't have funds to start any serious production.
