MIDIcar - Independent MIDI device for Atari XE

Introduction I would like to present new device for Atari XE series which can play/record MIDI files on Atari 8-bit computer. Idea was taken from Mytek's SIO2MIDI (https://ataribits.weebly.com/midi.html) but I decided to use CART/ECI port for communication with MIDI devices because in case I may us...

Re: A2I2C - I2C bus for Atari

Hi, As you mentioned, the /RESET line is open drain and for normal work you need to pull-up it to Vcc thru resistor but I suppose your microcomputer system has this line pulled-up in other place. Are you sure that PCF8584 RESET pulls the line down? It's input pin, so probably PCF is damaged. I had i...

I analysed my project again according to additional information regarding specific timing (AN96040 - added to first post) and now I'm pretty sure that the interrupt signal may disturb data communication between PCF8584 and microcomputer subsystem. I'll cut /INT line from existing PCB (especially tha...

If yes, PCF will not be capable for so quick operations at all. Nice address decoder but in case you have many shadow registers :-). Did you conn...
