General update

It's a while ago that you could read a new message here, luckily this doesn't mean that there wasn't any progress.
As our twitter friend already know, a lot of time has been spent in completing all of the schematics of the Orbit main-board.
To give you an idea of has been done lately, here a short summary:

  • USB PHY, HUB controller, RTC, Audio codec, Audio decoder,
    main memory and VRAM memory chips has been selected and ordered.
  • High speed interface schematic completed.
  • USB PHY schematic completed.
  • USB HUB schematic completed.
  • RTC schematic completed.
  • Audio mixer schematic completed.
  • Audio codec schematic completed.
  • MSX bus and front driver schematic completed.
  • Midi interface schematic completed.
  • FPGA has been selected and added to the library.
You can see, a lot of progress and in fact it's almost time to start with the PCB layout.
