I suspect that in one of the CX5M that I am fixing now the MMC controller YM5214 is faulty. I've found the project that successfully replaced that chip with Altera 7128 FPGA:


The documentation in French can be still found here:

Unfortunately the archive with the firmware is missing and I can't find it anywhere. Does anyone have this archive? The old path is this one:

My idea is to recompile this firmware for Altera 7160 FPGA and use the board similar to our YM2148 emulator:

Check this site: http://mymsx2.free.fr/menu2_msx.html hardware 03/2014 Remplacement d'un YM5214 ( MSXEngine du MSX1 YAMAHA CX5M ) par un EPM7128. And a video here: http://mymsx2.free.fr/montages/ym5214toepm7128/ym5214toepm71...

Possibly MetalGear2 still has the code.

Looks like the author decided not to reply to me. This is very sad...

I have the ym5214_to_epm7128_v7_18_04_2014.pdf, in it there's the equivalent schematic + lots of info.

Do you want it?

Hi Philippe, glad to get in touch! I found the PDF already, but I am missing the archive with the firmware. Would appreciate if you could post it on your website or send it by mail.
