Re: [N8VEM-S100:1369] Available S-100 PCBs

If they are not already spoken for, I would like to take 2.

There are three (3) S-100 Regular Prototyping board PCBs and eight (8) S-100 LAVA PCBs still available


aka “Basic S-100 Prototype Board” (scroll down to the second board description).  These are going fast so please act soon if you would like one or more.  Approximately 90% of the boards have already gone to their builders.






S-100 LAVA PCB is for a VGA monitor compatible display.  Uses Mylium LAVA-10 chip module (based Spartan-3 FPGA)






The S-100 LAVA works fine and does what it was designed to do quite well.  However, in my personal opinion the S-100 LAVA capability has been barely even touched since the current software uses the board as a VGA monitor compatible text terminal replacement.  I believe it is capable of quite a bit more text and graphics capability with further developed software. 


The S-100 LAVA is capable of 800x600 @ 16 bit display (65536 colors -- RGB565) with 32MB of SDRAM and 8 MB of Flash it should be easily capable of being an X-Window server and who knows what else.  It makes a logical pairing with upcoming S-100 80386 CPU and S-100 68K CPU board PCBs currently in development.


These PCBs are $20 each plus $3 shipping in the US and $6 elsewhere.


Please send a PayPal to LYN...@YAHOO.COM and I will send your boards right away!

Thanks and have a nice day!
