GottFA80_PLus - Power Supply, Lamp & Solenoiddriver included
Based on my v1 GottFA80 MPU, but with integrated Power Supply and Driverboard.
When preassembled by JLC you only need to solder one component (TL783CKC), put some ICs into the sockets ( see my Reichelt shop cart) and insert & program the CycloneII FPGA.
Note: TL783 has goot availibilty again at the moment. But be cautious when ordering these parts from Aliexpress! I got feedback from different users that they are fake parts on the market which could damaging your displays!
NOTE: This MPU is designed for System80/80A games!
Limitations for 80B games:
- the integrated power supply cannot be used
- on some 80B games (display on top) you need to extend the wiring
- due to memory limitations GottFA80_PLuS is not compatible with the 'late' 80B games ( Hot Shots, Big House, Bad Girls, Bonebusters and Night Moves ).
In additon to the GottFA80 PCB preassembled by JLCPCB you need a few ICs, a micro SD card, a FPGA and an USB Blaster to be able to program your FPGA. You can either let JLCPCB build it for you (my DIY board) or purchase one on Aliexpress ( e.g. this one FPGA board ). For the other parts see Reichelt shop cart.
Note: with Gottlieb it is always a good idea to replace the contacts in the edge connectors. This is also highly recommended for GottFA80!
Documentation & Software
Due to copyrigth on Gottlieb roms the SD card does not contain any rom code, but do provide the right struture for GottFA1_PLuS. Have a look at the user manual to see how you can copy your rom images onto the Sd card.
special thanks to Xavier for providing the french version
