Quote from: "barcher174"Awesome! How did you handle the synchronous UART? Bit banging?
Quote from: "Rob Blessin Black Hole"It also deals with the sound protocol (though there's no sound output... yet) so as far as the system is concerned the sound works fine and the system test passes.>>>>> Would it be possible to add powered speakers and powered microphone / headphone jacks ? I know with the regular sound cards you can by pass the internal speaker and micro phone plugging into the ports .Amazing work , would it also be possible to add a switch for USB KB/ MS Support in emulation as this amazing widget may be able to bypass the proprietary NeXT Sound Box , Keyboard and Mice Interface which for me would be huge as I have a ton of original NeXT Motherboards , power supplies and floppies.... in Theory a Custom NeXTStation Slab Case could be 3d printed or current case slightly modded where that fits under the hood and on cubes it mounts to a filler slat. We have the new capacitors , and Version 5.1 PCB's ....... just need the vampire over the 68040 / fpga reality distrortionater to kick it all into high gear or the Cube Intel Expansion board.The I860 Intel Chips on the Dimensions were highly programmable, I wonder if any of the NeXT engineers tinkered with designing a Pentium Expansion board for the Cube .... as the NeXTstep 486 Pentium , HPPA Risc and Sparc software breakout ports shut down the hardware production path that was going towards Risc , they could have in theory made one more motherboard upgrade for Cube owners Intel or may be we still can.... especially taking a gander at what they are doing modding the retro Amiga side ..... we shall see.
