Development board for Retroverse

I finally got some time to power up the development board I plan to use to develop Retroverse: It’s based on an STM32H7 MCU that can be pushed to 480 MHz. Porting DC2N functionality to it should be simple enough, … Continue reading

Tape handling driver for Black Pill ready

The porting of my tape handling driver to the Black Pill is done! The Black Pill is now dumping tapes and playing back TAP files (version 0, 1, and 2) too 🙂 Being the Blue Pill plagued with so many fakes … Continue reading

Moving away from HAL in my STM32CubeMX projects

This evening I found out that almost all peripheral driver initializations can be generated by STM32CubeMX using LL alone instead of HAL, which means I can easily get rid of HAL completely in my STM32F103 project! Not so fast though. … Continue reading

Benchmark testing for my USB serial code

Today after work I was able to quickly put together the test code I needed to measure the transfer speed of my “stdio redirection to USB” implementation for the STM32F411 board I am developing with. I haven’t got a baseline … Continue reading

Update on the tape handling driver for Retroverse

Over the last couple of days I was able to finish bits of porting of the tape handling driver to an STM32CubeMX project for Retroverse. The dumping part was tested in conjunction with my C2NEmu hardware and the tape playback … Continue reading

Tape handling driver for Retroverse

I haven’t had a great day today, having slept very little last night, but I started looking into the porting of DC2N5-LC’s tape dumping routine to an STM32CubeMX project, for being used with Retroverse. Stay tuned for more!

Update on Retroverse

Having had a coding marathon in the last few days, I finished porting three complete DC2N5-LC drivers, which were originally written with a bare-metal approach.These come in two new flavors: using STM32 HAL using STM32 LL without HAL Both implicitly … Continue reading

More work on Retroverse

The porting of my framework to a point where it is usable in an STM32CubeMX project continues… The more I work on this, the easier it gets. Honestly, I think there is a chance that once I move to STM32F4xx … Continue reading

Thinking of making a Retroverse

I am setting up the development toolchain for a development board I have had in mind for some time now, that I plan to call the “Retroverse”, aka the universe of retro-computing development 😀Such board will include all Tape, Disk … Continue reading
