Re: Making a DSU from scratch for an orphan DCS100

And we went light sensitive...

Everything is ready to store all those LED blinks to something so i can read it on a computer and make a file to open in something and see if there is a picture, or something like it.

We are close folks!

Re: Making a DSU from scratch for an orphan DCS100

Slowly restarting the development. Just testing if the Xilinx tolerate 5v signals (the one the DCS has) and not only the 3.3v modern ones https://i.ibb.co/9HCxh3C/367c3a78-d4b1-40d7-b3d8-0da7ddeec247.jpg Then will be time to get my rusty Verilog code and my rusty coding and port the existing code fr...

Re: Making a DSU from scratch for an orphan DCS100

Thanks for the support! you know, i haven't give up yet, actually taking advantage of free market in Peru i've bought 2 CPLD boards, much more compatible with the DCS hardware, an SDRAM board for buffer and the programmer for the CPLD, it still remain in its bags but as i return to Argentina, which ...

Re: Making a DSU from scratch for an orphan DCS100

Hi everybody, if there's somebody left... from the last post, i wired, tested and nothing was correct, everything was wrong, everything i measured was wrong, the fpga didn't liked at all my board with shifters... or maybe was the wiring... also it was december from a very complicate year and i was t...

Re: Making a DSU from scratch for an orphan DCS100

Well... today i finished building the shifters, tomorrow i will be wiring it up to the FPGA and testing if they work... .... fingers are crossed https://i.ibb.co/9qb85v7/253546fe-fadc-4790-8544-3b270091b1e5.jpg https://i.ibb.co/1QqHmhv/56435054-7507-4cb9-b599-d9c9ac437181.jpg https://i.ibb.co/bWk1CX...

Re: Making a DSU from scratch for an orphan DCS100

Well, the level shifter arrived, but they are so small that i'm soldering to a breadboard in order to be able to use them and is quite a job... maybe next week will be news about it

Re: Making a DSU from scratch for an orphan DCS100

Well this is going slooow, i found that my level shifters can't deal with real data or clock speeds, so i ordered new and better ones from the states.. they'll be arriving in a few days, i hope... also comunicating with the display seemed imposible, probably due to the level shifters.

Two DCS100 found in the wild

Hi everybody. Right there on facebook marketplace, a dealer of analog cameras publishing a DCS100 monochrome, no DSU... after contact him he tells me that he has another more but color. This is the fifth DCS100 i could source in Buenos Aires, quite impressive, one of them even was complete, with har...

Re: Making a DSU from scratch for an orphan DCS100

Hi Stan, for this i want to add a small 128x64 OLED display, designed for arduino mostly, it's i2c, do you think it's worth the effort to code it or i just use an arduino as display controller and feed the data from the fpga in a simpler way, also i will be saving the FPGA memory for the real stuff

Re: Nikon Df

intresting... how does it behave in low light? i work mostly in really dim lights shows and using a d800 is not the correct aproach since is very noise, i was thinking in a d750 but that Df is one sexy machine...

Re: Making a DSU from scratch for an orphan DCS100

Hi Stan, yes... i work a lot with vintage HI-Fi, and capacitors are a plague even had unrecoverable devices due to corrosion from leaking capacitors, but tantalums failing... this is new to me

Re: Making a DSU from scratch for an orphan DCS100

Well it's been a slow week since i'm rewriting all the code since it was a mess and it didn't worked anymore. recoding was going nice till i tryed to turn on the back. nothing worked, tested lots of stuff and it didn't worked, on the last test while programming a new code onto the FPGA the poor DCS ...

Re: A Miracle? 21 years old batteries working!

i like phone li-ions, they have protection for almost everything, overdischarge, overcharge, overvolt, overconsumption, overheat, hurricane(?). i like to used them for small projects because they charge with whatever you put them as soon is DC and not too much over the specifications... tho one day ...

Re: Making a DSU from scratch for an orphan DCS100

Well, since the interfacing is done today i made the schematics for the first prototype

Tomorrow i'll will be building it so i can move on to the imager part, buffer and a small display
