Nice job on the carts! Glad it all worked out.
Impressive on the programmer as well.

I retried a 3D carbon fiber case. It came out very clean. The guy who did my original print oriented the part badly so the original did not look good. I need to adjust the screw depth as it popped out a bit on the top cover when I tightened down the screws. This would definitely be usable as a case. $6 to print.

New 32Mbit cart

I just got my new 32Mbit cart design working. I thought Iíd post this in its own thread for easier searching. Some info on this cart was buried in my molded color case thread. This is a 32Mbit flash cart with 8kx8 SRAM. SRAM content is saved at power down without a battery. It has the footprints to support an 32kx8 SRAM as an option. Also supported on my VB mini programmer with firmware version 1.7.

With the release of this cart Iím going to discontinue my 128/256 design. The 128/256 design was used for a few demos but otherwise the extra space was never really utilized. Those carts were also difficult to assemble. That was one of the reasons for this new 32Mbit design.

Great to hear that, the ability to reprogram from the cart itself is incredible, and I'm pretty sure most if not everyone would still say how incredible that idea was even if it was a little slower at re-flashing the cart. It's a really unique and innovative idea, and everyone'll be more than happy with however well the result turns out to be :) (also that design looks sick, the red on black looks as fantastic as the system itself)


Thanks for the words of support. Iím pushing hard. Itís all doable. If I didnít have this damn day job Iíd be done already! :-)

Somewhere along the line (around page 4 of this topic) I picked up the notion that the HyperFlash 32 was going to have some mechanism for loading new ROMs into the flash slot from the SD card without requiring the use of a PC - just a USB power source. I imagined it would be a button or an input on the touch screen. Is that still the plan?


Still the plan. Small chance it may not work very well and need to be scrapped, but risk is low. There will still be a lot more functionality exposed through a computer GUI. The on-cart programming will be simple as possible. Like my ďautoĒ command on my current programmer.

The design is coming out so much better than I hoped. Case is super strong. Tweaks needed but this is going to be awesome!
