Yikes! I was also put in preorder queue in October.. 2012.. :-) I guess it will be longer waiting, but hopefully worth it. :-)

If we didn't get a reply does that mean we aren't on the list? I sent my mail on 15/05/2011. I guess you must get a LOT of mail

Hehe, no worries Mike - just deliberately giving you the gears.

Mainly interested in the full meal deal anyways with the daughterboard, since I want to use it to run my Amiga powered BBS and I need Ethernet.

Default Re: FPGA Replay Board

I've just finished the layout for a PS/2 to USB converter.

This sits on the pads of the PS/2 connector on the main board and replaces the two PS2 ports with an external USBA port and an internal USB header. There is a small on board micro (VNC2) which handles the two USB ports and communicates over the same four FPGA pins the PS/2 connector used to use - but SPI this time.

This gives a low latency keyboard and mouse input.
This board can be fitted to any RevB board - I'll post some pictures soon.

I need to write the code first and make sure it works (I have an eval board to play with).

Is it possible to use an A4000 keyboard plugged into the PS2 socket?

It would be great to have you developing for the FPGA Arcade, especially if it is using Poseidon.

Does this mean I have to throw away my PS/2 ports to get USB?

PS/2 is way better. No way am I getting rid of them. All my stuff is PS/2 and PS/2 is better for mouse and keyboard (which are required). USB is only better for nonrequired type things like my external 2TB drives and cameras and mp3 players and things.

Anyway I would rather have both PS/2 and USB.

Sorry for ranting

Are the PS/2 ports real PS/2 ports? Like the ones on my Core i5 box?

I was once upon a time 100% going to buy one (once the 060 card came out and was verified working correctly) but I am currently at 93% chance.

@Platon42
Does this mean FPGA Arcade will gain some superduper awesome USB support in the near future?

Hi Chris,
So you survived the traveling then? You didn't pop by Stockholm!
I do indeed owe you a board, ping me a mail.
Cheers,

Hi.
No problem, let me explain.
I prefer PS/2 for mouse/keyboard and this is the default build option.

For people who want to put it in the case, or want USB mouse/keyboard this is an option to replace the PS/2 with USB.

These USB ports are directly controlled by the FPGA and appear as native Amiga mouse + keyboard.

The daughterboard has a real USB chip and already works with the Poseidon stack.

So you can choose...

Note, the main board also has two 9 pin inputs which accept real amiga/atari mice as well as joysticks.

Maybe one could add something to the verilog code to handle the DB9 atari style ports as PS/2 ones with a suitable connector adapter?
