All I can say is WOW! That is a very impressive set of pcb's and I second the pcb porn statement made earlier. I'd absolutely love to have one of these, especially the MZ DA version. Oooooh, those plated pcb edges, the keyboard design, damn it the whole design is thoroughly outstanding.

You've done yourself proud there!!!

Imagine we introduce something like

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/IEEE-488

We need to add some buffers with termination, and may emulate the GPIB (via PMP) .. :)
GRIB - General Retro Interface Bus
A pic32 computer for young scientists..

I am sorry, it is probably me, but I kind of lost the thread here... :) What are you two talking about?
Don't know anything about IEEE-488, but had my own "young scientist" communication idea some time ago. Even wrote a short document about it (still hosted in my old company's website, but just disregard that detail): http://dimitech.com/downloads/asb.pdf

Never mind. Untranslatable wordplay. :)

GPIB or HP-IB is an 8bit parallel interface developed by HP for connecting measuring equipment to their programmable calculators/computers in past. It enabled to connect 31 devices (multimeters, counters, power sources, plotters, etc, etc) to a computer. So in past you had a lab full of measuring instruments, daisy-chained (via stackable HPIB connectors) to an HP Basic computer, ie HP9800 series. That was the highest standard in 70ties and 80ties in science labs and high-tech companies..

Will crowdfund it in about a month or two.
Here is the landing page for now: https://www.crowdsupply.com/knivd/ello-2m

It is on! Sure, no retroBSD for it yet, but its MX470 maybe one day... :idea:

Please do give me some support, if you can.

Wow, great!
I'm ready to help with LiteBSD for this board.
Just ordered an Ello 2M Geek model.

I also signed up for a Geek model. There are less than two weeks away to reach the funding goal.

I'd like to see RetroBSD on it, though I also have a baremetal, subroutine-threaded Forth for PIC32 that I'd like to use on it.

They could use some more funding! (Disclaimer: I am in no way affiliated with the project or creator...)

Thanks to everyone for the support.
Fun is coming soon... :)

And special thanks to Serge - he is the first backer in the campaign.

Hi Konstantin,
I'm backer #1, wow! :)
How about the 2M2 version? As I can see, a new checkbox appeared on the campaign page, right above pre-order button, allowing to choose between 2M and 2M2. My guess is that you have both in development.
I would like to have both: 2M for RetroBSD and 2M2 for LiteBSD. My current order is ELLO 2M Geek. If I now pre-order 2M2 Hacker, would I get both models?

Thanks,
--Serge

Hi Serge,
I would love to see RetroBSD and LiteBSD working on ELLO.
The 2M² model is ready and currently manufacturing samples. You can have them both.
Thanks!

PS. Does RetroBSD currently have drivers to support SSD1963, XPT2046, and RFD21733?

Hi guys,
Just sharing my little PIC32MX470 laptop with you. Wondering could it be made to run the Retro? Can the Retro run on MX470?

That is an amazing project. Looks cool too.
