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!

Spring Break - Arena - Victory - Diamond Lady - TX Sector - Robo War
Excalibur(*) - Bad Girls(*) - Big House(*) - Hot Shots(*) - Bone Busters Inc.(*) - Night Moves (*)

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 of the Cyclone II FPGA if you plan to use GottFA80 with Excalibur, Hot Shots, Big House, Bad Girls, Bonebusters or Night Moves you need to use my Cyclone IV dev board.

Have a look at my FPGA page to select which one you want to use.

parts needed

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.

Have a look at my FPGA page to select which one you want to use.

Parts from the Reichelt shop cart and the CycloneII FPGA

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

how to order your GottFA80_PLuS PCB

Have a look to the PCB documentation section.

Needed Gerber Data, BOM and Component Placement List (CPL) you find on my repository server

Note: due to an error in JLCPCB database when ordering the correct heatsink need to be manually selected
