DE1 boards might get cheaper

Postby AndyKey » 07 Feb 2014, 01:16

http://www.terasic.com.tw/cgi-bin/page/ ... o=53&No=83
is the DE1 page.

Might be interesting to watch this page over the next month or two.
Terasic have now released a later replacement DE1 SoC board for slightly more $.
So we might expect they'll need to lower the price of the regular DE1 to shift them.

REMEMOTECH uses a DE1 board.

Hi Andy,

REMEOTECH is really neat and features like the ability to drive two monitors are great.

However, even if Terasic drop the price somewhat, it will likely still be a relatively expensive outlay - not a problem for the Memotech nerds amongst us (who are they?) - but possibly a bit rich for most people.

I just wanted to remind people of the great low cost hardware solution that you and Bill (Brendling) put together, that is, the ability to run MEMU on a Raspberry Pi

While not quite a powerful as REMEMOTECH, it is a low cost and fully featured way to recreate an MTX in hardware - complete with joystick support

regards
Dave

For those that attended Memofest and saw my DE1, they did indeed get a little cheaper.

https://www.mouser.co.uk/ProductDetail/Terasic-Technologies/P0528/?qs=sGAEpiMZZMurtJ7VwBTl0dtP66NIbUgVwSGXt2wseXE%3d

That price works out at around £150 including VAT and delivery. Still not cheap, but maybe an alternative to waiting for a cheap MTX to come up on Ebay or the like ?
