Hi designer(s) and the rest of the community,
I have a question about this product (Chameleon v2)...
A long time ago Jeri Ellsworth was contracted by Tulip to make a portable version of the Commodore 64 (if I'm correct this was a Dutch company who owned the rights of Commodore after there glory days). She (and her team) made a 30 in 1 gaming Joystick based on her C-One design.
The C-One was packed with electronics, but the most important product on the board was the FPGA chip.
After tweaking Jeri and her team 'burned' there final concept in an ASIC chip (ROM) that was featured on the DTV PCB
My question is the following:
I know that the main purpose of the DTV (joystick) was made to play games and the chameleon can do more then that, but is in essence: Is the FPGA chip used in the Chameleon v2 more or less the same as the early editions of the FPGA chip Jeri used?
I hope to hear from someone, all the best,
With kind regard,
Jeroen Wolf, a 44 year old electronics and retro gaming enthusiast from the Netherlands.
