Altera Cyclone EPC12Q240C8N + 32 Mbit SDRAM + nice case

Product Description: 

Back to basics, yet ready for the future: The One Chip MSX. Out of the box, this computer is compatible with the MSX1 and MSX2 standard, for which many classic games were released since its introduction to the consumer market in 1983. You will enjoy hours of gameplay with this machine for which new software is regularly released, even today.

The One Chip MSX is a lot more than just an MSX computer. The core of the One Chip MSX is an Altera Cyclone EP1C12Q240C8N FPGA chip, which is a Programmable Logic Device. This means that the functionality of the chip can be altered partially, or even completely, at any time, using a programming language called VHDL. This opens a wide range of possibilities, such as extending the MSX standard with new features, or even implementing your favorite classic computer or console in the FPGA chip. So, without making any physical hardware modifications, you can gain control over what the One Chip MSX actually does.

Unfortunately, we do no longer accept pre-orders. If you are interested in acquiring a One Chip MSX, please join our One Chip MSX newsletter. Although there are no plans to produce a second batch of One Chip MSX computers in the near future, you will be the first to know when a second batch is to be produced.
