    Default RamBladeProp with SRAM to run CPM & ZiCog plus other LMM software (SMT pcb)

    I have had a number of designs that have not come to fruition for one reason or another... Too much time to re-think options.

    RamBladeˇis a small fully smt version pcb about 1"x1.8" andˇdesigned toˇplug intoˇa Prop ProtoBoard (or similar) which will be used to download the code to the RamBlade and then act as a Terminal and I/O to the RamBlade.

    RamBlade is designed to run...
    • CPM2.2, CPM3 & ZiCog
    • MoCog & Flex when complete
    • PropDos
    • Catalina C
    • LMM programs
    • Designed to connect to another prop board (ProtoBoard, etc) with I/O such as VGA, TV, Keyboard, Mouse, etc
    • Boot code to be downloaded by the other prop board (no eeprom on pcb)

    RamBlade specifications are... (Block diagram attached) (differs from that previously published here)
    • Propeller + xtal (hopefully 120MHz operation)
    • NO eeprom (must be loaded by another prop)
    • SRAM 512KB (fast - no latches)
    • microSD socket (currently accepts up to 2GB)
    • External interface (to another prop e.g. ProtoBoard) as follows...
      • 3 pin PropPlug style interface to load prop/eeprom (SI, SO & -RST)
      • 2 pin serial interface for communication while running (seperate to the above which must be tristated)
      • power input 5-9VDC & Gnd
    • onboard 3V3 regulation
    • Will be available fully assembled

    Comments please?

    This will be an interesting combination with Ray's 4.3" PSM to do the I/O. I look forward to trying that combination.

    Yes Mike. I have a 2.5" photoframe I would like to try as a monitor. It is very similar to the 1.5" keychain one interfaced by jazzed.
    Now to swipe the qwerty keyboard off my imate phone
