• Looking for documentation about TPM-MPC-604e/200

    From Abraham Vreugdenhil@21:1/5 to All on Mon Mar 28 12:04:41 2022
    Hello All.

    I am looking for documentation about the connector and jumpers on the TPM-MPC-604e/200 card. We are working at a system with now is build as a 16 * T800 transputer as hypercube with a monoputer card in a W98 PC as host. This system we connect to a W10 PC
    with is connected to internet. We run a program to demonstrate the working of mining bitcoins on this hypercube. We want to add more cards to this system, to start with this card.
    Does anyone have some information about this nice card. I dont want to use the PowerPC-604e side, but only the T425 part of the card.

    Greeting Abraham vreugdenhil.

    In all the parsytec docs that I have been able to collect, I have never managed to find any info on this card, apart from assumptions from the photos on Ebay, we just know that there are at least 3 versions: https://www.geekdot.com/the-ppc-parsytecs/

    Without FPU, I don't know if the T425 can help much to do bitcoin mining!
    In any case, even if the algo works I don't know if you will have a single result of blocchain given the performance of the t800, what are we not doing for fun XD

    The Pinout of the 64-pin DIN41612 may be compatible to the Megaframe Serie.
    See http://www.classiccmp.org/transputer/documentation/parsytec/parsy_tpm1_ger.pdf page 9.

    Parsytec was using an distributed reset schema but also supply an global/master reset pin. No dedicated Analyse pin.

    But I'm only guessing

    Kind regards
