today is a special day!
finally, i was able to get ahold of an official snes devkit, the snes emulator se.
although this may seem trivial to some of you, ive been trying to obtain one of these for the longest time.
to celebrate this very special occurrence, i've taken the chance and did some pictures of the units insides and...
well, see for yourself. ;)
cpu board: stock cpu, wram, 2 ppus and vram, scsi interface
sound board: spc700+dsp, ram, midi interface
rom emulator board: 8mbit ram(32mbit max), dsp1, obc1
special video board with vga out(no idea what its used for exactly)
additional ram for the video board
the xilinx cplds are most likely used for realtime debugging.
basically, theres a "main board" that provides power and the a and b bus and you plug the various extension boards seen above into this mainboard.
there are two additional unused slots, these can for example be used to add super fx support and such.
ive got the software and am waiting to receive the scsi interface card, should arrive next week.
