    We are proud to present our new sound board.

    Replace SYS1, SYS80, SYS80A and first SYS80B sound boards.

    Complete description is here :

    Next ... An other sound board for MA-216 replacement !

    Haunted House is NOT on the list of supported machines.

    It's good to see another board available. However, I'm not enthusiastic with the idea of using an unreplacable/mysterious ASIC/FPGA chip. Pascal's board uses easily replaceable components instead, though I'm not sure if all of the same titles are supported--most seem to be.

    1) Yes not HH for this board, but YES a prototype works fine for ALL MA-216 sound boards : MGOW ... CAVEMAN, and KRULL video GAME !

    Due to connector and power supply différences we can't have a single board for the three types of boards.

    For the moment all sounds works "as original" for all games, speech is just "ignored" as if the SC-01 is not mounted, the next challenge is to support speech !

    We can add REAL SC-01 on board, (it works done on prototype board), BUT due to the availability of this component, it wil be more reasonnable to ... Emulate it !

    2) No ... Pascal board uses programmed processor ST7xxxx.
    So it is unremplacable as well !
    And not at all titles are supported. (HULK-500, three SYS80B)
    In our board the REAL components are implemented in the FPGA, (Even the EARLIER versions of R6530) there is no samples, so quality is the SAME as originals.

    To be continued ...

    Quoted from KenLayton:

    Haunted House is NOT on the list of supported machines.

    Indeed, because Haunted House has NEVER used this type of board. This pinball use the evolved board (using 6502/6532 and NOT the 6530) with less populated components (no SC-01).

    And about FPGA: it's by far easier to program this component using a very common USB adapter, than the CPU used by Pascal on his sounds boards. We just need that:

    The CPU used Janin's boards is a very old chip (initially intended to be placed on LCD screen). This (no more in production) component need a special programmer and use a very specific protocol. The only programmer that can be found for that, need a parallel port (Centronics) that no more exist on modern PC.
