The first package packed and ready for shipment.

I would, by the way, thank testers - gflorez and Zozo :smt041
Thanks to them, you have refined joystick emulation mode, which might come in handy before coming the first programs that use a mouse natively.

I also thank Z80System for the inspiration to create the adapter SEGA. I would not myself invented it :smt023

Thanks guys :bow:

Pear and GFlorez,

do not get me wrong, I am not a grammar Nazi, just would like to help make the text a bit more... hmmm... glorious :)
Once upon a time, I started out as an English teacher... so here is my quick revision of the article.

Congratulations on your hard work - both of you!

English is not my mother tongue.
I do not know everything.
But I know about electronics :ds_icon_cheesygrin:

Thanks for the text correction :smt023

Anytime!

I am not a native speaker either but have a bad habit of reading wikis all the time :)

What's new ?

I completed parts for the next batch EnterMice (30 pcs).

The supplier of most important element, unfortunately, turned out to be dishonest.
On the last delivery of Xilinx chips, almost half was broken (had to be new not used).
I've found a new supplier. I hope that will be better.

The new chips are powered by 3.3 V, which forced several changes in the PCB (additional elements to ensure proper supply of the XC9572XL).
The new supplier, for now, has a lower price, so the additional required elements will not affect the final price of the interface and remain unchanged.

New PCBs are ready. I'm waiting for delivery.

Why am I NOT surprised... :(

Recently, I have also noticed a negative trend of selling untested hardware by Chinese sellers on ebay.
Let us hope for the best the new batch will not fail.

BTW, I have a strong suspicion that these components pass through a strong, harmful electromagnetic field... maybe at customs check, airport etc...?  What is delivered by camel-riding, raft-pulling carriers never fails, anyway... although it might take 2 months to arrive.

In this case, it was clearly used chips (programmed and locked before reading).
Certainly wasn't new.
A good supplier can send your order by regular mail and the shipment arrives in two weeks.

The problem here that in case of CPLD failure (though I am not sure how common this problem is, if it worked at the time of the first Entermice "tests") it will be hard to find a replacement CPLD :( Technology seems to be too fast nowadays ... :-/ Eg same problem with EPNET, that Wiznet suggests newer stuff now than the w5300 ... but it's almost impossible to follow the evolution of hardware devices especially by hobby projects :(

So far, despite the heavy tests of EnterMice, none CPLD wasn't damaged during operation.
It is known that can always happen accident.
Single piece of XC9572 are readily available.
It is more difficult to buy them in large quantities at a good price.

I was looking for CPLD chips from other manufacturers, but Xilinx is the cheapest.
Additionally, it has a free design software.
