Jump to: navigation, search

The CPC6128 second bank of 64K RAM is controlled by a PAL 16L8 chip. It has the Amstrad part number 40031.

On the CPC 6128 schematic, it is top centre: CPC6128 Schematic however the X inputs aren't distinguished.

Fixed version (Gerald)

Original version from Porchy suffer from a bad handling of the RAMDIS signal. This cause screen artefact when accessing an external extension RAM like XMEM.

Initial replacement equation (Porchy)

The following equations were worked out by Porchy (member on CPCWiki Forum). These can be used to program replacements:

A15OUT = (!X2 & !X1 & A14
     # !X3 & !X2 & A14
     # A15); 

!X1 = (!A15 & D7ANDD6 & RESET & !IOWR & D0
     # !X1 & RESET & IOWR
     # !X1 & !D7ANDD6 & RESET
     # !X1 & A15 & RESET);

!X2 = (!A15 & D7ANDD6 & RESET & !IOWR & D1
     # !X2 & RESET & IOWR
     # !X2 & !D7ANDD6 & RESET
     # !X2 & A15 & RESET);

!X3 = (!A15 & D7ANDD6 & RESET & !IOWR & D2
     # !X3 & RESET & IOWR
     # !X3 & !D7ANDD6 & RESET
     # !X3 & A15 & RESET);

!CAS1 = (X3 & !X1 & A15 & A14 & !NCAS & !RAMDIS & !CPU & CAS0
     # !X3 & !A15 & A14 & !NCAS & !RAMDIS & !CPU & CAS0
     # X3 & !X2 & X1 & !NCAS & !RAMDIS & !CPU & CAS0
     # !NCAS & CAS0 & !CAS1);

!CAS0 = (X3 & X2 & X1 & !NCAS & !RAMDIS & CAS1
     # X3 & !X1 & !A15 & !NCAS & !RAMDIS & CAS1
     # !X3 & A15 & !NCAS & !RAMDIS & CAS1
     # !X1 & !A14 & !NCAS & !RAMDIS & CAS1
     # !X3 & !A14 & !NCAS & !RAMDIS & CAS1
     # !NCAS & !RAMDIS & CPU & CAS1
     # !NCAS & !CAS0 & CAS1);

A14OUT = (A15 & A14
     # !X1 & A14
     # X3 & A14);
