ICL OPD

Not sure if this is considered a compatible, but it does share some common hardware components. Acquired a motherboard and processor board for this recently - does anyone have a service manual or circuit diagrams for this beasty? Or perhaps have any details for the pin outs for the ROM card at the b...

Re: Q68 I2C addresses.

Not 68K, but probably not too difficult to transpose to 68K c or assembler:

Re: Symmetric multiprocessing...

Also, the 68K vector area and etc. are so small, it might be unnecessary to remap the DPRAMs, IF they do not conflict with a ROM image. I haven't tackled that part of the design yet. you can use the FC0-FC2 to signal a fetch of restart vector - as it's different to other vector fetches - and could ...

Re: For Sale: QL Books

What's the Quick QL machine language book like Derek?

I might be interested in that one.

Re: Symmetric multiprocessing...

I thought there were some heavy license costs with those embedded arm core FPGA's ? I was looking at the bemcro-CV a9 board when it was available, which had an A9 ARM core on board, but I was mainly interested in the large logic element count ideal for making a 'big' VHDL propeller chip implementati...

Re: Symmetric multiprocessing...

You could also take the approach that each CPU would be it's own QL - effectively virtualising the QL into a logical entity with real CPU and memory, and only having the I/O as common

A new device could act as an inter processor gateway
