Coldfire-project: design files published

Oliver who is involved with the Amiga-Coldfire project (not to be confused with the Elbox Dragon) has decided to publish the design-files for the V4e.

He is hoping for other hardware-geeks to help him to look for potential design-flaws before the first prototype is made.

Amiga Coldfire Group
Oliver's update
Design Files (group-membership required)

So who will be the first to check for RoHS-compliance?

Hrm, RoHS? "Restrictriction of Hazardous Substances"?

How could one possibly check a design for this?

And I really wish I had more time but among other things
I am busy with my own hardware-project, although not Amiga-related.

Hell, no idea, I can't even open that file format (but that must be a good sign I guess, not just some tiffs).

Any idea what the file format is? I won't be able to get home and check for a few hours still tonight, and after working so long this week I might not get around to anything shaped like computer work at home for a week or so. :/

At the risk of starting a huge thread about it again, I wonder if this will spur on Elbox to release the Dragon any sooner.

shouldn't this be posted as news instead of being hidden away in the forum? ;)

Itwould be nice if Oliver could work with Dennis (Of Minimig fame!) to soup up the minimig with coldfire!
I would be very interested in a 1-400Mhz Minimig!

They are Gerber (RS274X) files. You should be able to open them with one of the countless viewers or any CAM software, like CircuitCAM.

Cool. No wishing I could see what's up if only I had that US$15000 PCB software then :)

A demo model of solid model might be to you your liking.

@Toaks

Actually, a design can be checked against the RoHS, you must check whether the components you use contain are RoHS compliant.

What? This is about Amiga and we're not discussing a Gerber datatype, but, typically Whinedos'-style 'countless viewers?

Hi all.

Oliver who is involved with the Amiga-Coldfire project has decided to publish the design-files for the V4e.


Just a quick FYI, the V4e design is a totally new one I have just started work on, its a week old infact, so the design files are just showing whats going on with the project.

I do want the help of anyone in the group who can help but the current design is just to find the best way out of the V4e's BGA package, where was the best place for the CPU to go on the board, etc.
After thats done I will rip one sector up at a time and do it with timing and such in mind.

Naa, who needs to do that? We will have this thing done before the RoHS deadline no problem.

Quote:

Errr no.

Quote:

Yep, This is the file type you send to the PCB manufacturers and there are a number of Windows and Linux views for the file type.
I know its not Amiga compatiable but its best as its a multi layer design and Gerber lets you look at one layer at a time or both on top of each other, etc which makes looking for faults easier.
A Jpg or Iff wouldnt be any good for that.

Anyhow if you have any questions feel free to ask.. dont expect the files to show you a finished design though, its a 100% new design.
