The Aurora uses some custom logic that is hard to reproduce. We have the same amount of programmed logic as PCBs. If we can find the way to make more we will (it also suits our internal purposes) but I suspect it would be quite hard to make your own Aurora PCBs for this reason.

Yet another QL FPGA where the source is lost?

We'll update you on that when we have more info. Hopefully, it is safe. However, it's not just code. It's programmers, and the correct devices too. A trifecta of needs.

PLD sources are available on the yahoo group and have been public for years.

Could someone please post a link for the Google or yahoo group where all these fantastic information can be found?
I really tried searching the web but somehow did not find the proper key words, I'm afraid.
Kind regards
Paul

Paul,
The Google group has a bit of a problem, as it's been long dormant and apparently the maintainer doesn't any more maintaining. (I used to have a link somewhere, but somehow lost it, because I tried to join and never got an answer)

If someone has still access, it would most probably make sense to save some of the contents there and rescue it to a more public place.

Tobias

(And, thinking about it, I'm not even sure whether it was a google or yahoo group - I'd rather think the latter)

As I am the owner of the group, I can pull all the files and send them to someone who can put them somewhere more public - I'm open to suggestions.

Hi Nasta,

Why not put the file on Dilwyn's web site, this is a good central point for all QL related files.


Regards,

Derek

Happy to do this. I already have a page for the QL-SD stuff, could do the same with Nasta's documents. If Nasta wishes to do this, I'll happily provide the space.

If Nasta would like to email me the files with a small text about what's what to help me organise it all clearly, or put them in a Dropbox or similar for me to download, we can aim to preserve all these important files.
