Nice thing in a small form factor. The three slots are really nice.I am missing MSX-Audio and Moonsound. In the video the device starts with a DOS, can't see which. Does it also run Nextor? MSX-DOS2 would be a step back.
I hope, many new firmware's will follow.

It is currently running a firmware based on KDL 3.7.1 and has all that it supports + Wi-Fi and HDMI. As soon as KDL releases a new OCM firmware, either Victor or I merge it with the MSX-SM extra stuff. Cool

What FPGA model are you using?

ALTERA EP4CE22.

P.s.: I'm not Victor Trucco and neither earn a single penny on this. I just have an early prototype and got involved working on UNAPI for it just because I'm crazy enough to do it and wanted to make something useful for the MSX community. Wink

These are two primary slots + one secondary, two secondary + one primary or all are secondary?

Hi gdx,

The version of the firmware I'm working with still do not have the side slot working, for that one, top slots are slots 1 and 2.

Once Victor release the updated fpga code on his gitlab, I'll make sure to look into it, but per what we have been talking last week, my guess is that once the side slot is enabled it expands slot 2 and top slot 2 and side slot are secondary slots, or you can move a full slot to it (1) and leave the two top slots as secondary slots of internally expanded slot 2. If I'm not mistaken the third slot support still is a work in progress and subject to change on how it work.

I think it could be possible to have two primary and one secondary (subslot of slot 3 or so), like it was done by Yamaha in YIS503/CX series too

Hi Pencioner, if you check the zemmix neo / OCM slot layout when running KDL firmware, you will see that slot 0 and 3 have already been fully expanded:

So, to use one of those secondary slots in the third slot, you most likely will need to disable a feature, unless if after boot it is possible to unmap IPL rom from slot 3-3, then this could be a good alternative, but I could be wrong, and anyway I'm just especulating. oO

Let's see what Victor will bring on this third slot functionality.

Disk-ROM and Sub-Rom can be in the same slot. This would free the slot 3-2.

Question. Is the WIFI chip based on the ESP8266 chip? If so. We already have a driver for SymbOS on the CPC. Maybe it will be easy to adapt the driver for MSX in SymbOS to use the SymbOS network driver/layer.

Hi Edoz,

Yes, it's ESP8266 based. I've contacted Prodatron a several weeks ago sending an email to his profile here at MSXRC telling about this project and asking for information on how to write a driver for SYMBOS daemon but unfortunately he didn't reply, otherwise this could already have been done.
