A project log for YASEP News archives

A backup of the blog before the host erases it. A good opportunity to review the development, twists and turns of this ISA !

I just received ACME System's invoice for some of their new Actel-based
boards. So I went to their website and remark that it is updated : ACME Colibri board [link down now, moved to]

It is lighter, better and slimmer than the FoxVHDL board, as it seems that the VGA output was rarely used. The optional composite encoder seems to have been even less used, and it used some space. So the Colibri should be a bit cheaper too :-)

I don't know when I'll get mine, but I ordered both the A3P250 and A3P1000 version.


Yes I received them ;-) See the next log.
