Re: Alternate network and local storage for the Dreamcast
> Nice. Could you please point me on how to hook to the SH SCI on Dreamcast (though not necessary if you know better options, see below)?
Here it is (from my dumb memo):
SCLK SCK R140
DI TXD R122
DO RXD R115
CDET CTS2 R159
CS RTS2 R121
(Note this board is dreamcast with MIL-CD support that can boot NetBSD)
dumb patch is here (some MI SH3 files are missing)
There is no spare GPIO pin on dreamcast so I use RTS2 and CTS2
pins on SCIF serail port for CS/CD.

Not yet. I have to check hardware and signals for stability..

I also had "dcext" board which supported IDE HDD + NE2000
but it has been broken for years.
The purpose of my SDMMC mod is to make it easier to load
debug kernels for the board without burning CD-R coasters...
