• Wired rpi0w for GFX again

    I reconnected my rpi0w to the system, for HDMI output (@ this time it does VGAT emulation) may soon I'll make a simple GUI instead (with simple feedbacks as it is now connected on a dedicated Serial port & no more on same port as Keyboard !)

  • Just added X11 VGAText emulation

    Hi, today I have a working version of VGAText output emulation for your *nux computer,

    It emulates for both sides (Teensy & RPI) a serial port communication to render as real VGAT interface on your Desktop.

  • Xts-uBASIC can now run on your computer !

    Since today : it's now possible to test BASIC directly on a g++/SDL2/ncurses computer

    g++ build script is available on github

  • It's alive !!!!

    Main module + DFPlayer MP3 + VGAText + USB Hub as DBUG & PWR supply

  • Starting an enclosure for the system

    Hi, I started to make a box for my computer system....

    I decided to re-use an old MO5 case, which I emptied & added hinges.

    I started to separate the OLED Display & button, then glued an android tablet USB flat keyboard :

    So it looks like that for now.

  • MP3 Sound Card added

    Hi, I recently added a DFPlayer mp3 module to act as a sound card, this looks like this :

  • VGA Text replacement

    Franck GALLIAT04/02/2017 at 17:06 0 comments

    Hi, today I nearly achived the Simple VGAText Serial ouput (100x50 chars - text ONLY interface) replacement by re-using a Raspberry PI Zero + Java + FrameBuffer.

    It does actually run an emulation of the VGAText micro-code (receiving text & escaped commands from the Serial Port) to make a Pseudo text-based UI.

    It boots & start the program in 14sec from strict powering up time (8sec from linux starts booting).

    The cons : It does not starts instantanatly,

    the pros : It can be use on ANY HDMI TV or Computer Monitor even with too high resolution, later it will be able to receive some GFX commmands, the render code is (on-board) modifiable, Keyboard reading will replace the HobbyTronics USB Host (keyb preprogrammed) board, & it costs nearly as same as HobbyTronics VGA TEXT board...

    I know, It could replace the whole system, but I keep my MCU (teensy3.6) board to do the main Unit... (just for personal fun ! )

    to follow ...
