Because of ABBUC Hardware Competition schematics and board will be available of the end of October

Done!

The first project which is using VIAtari was made...
I'm glad to present the first GLCD 162x64 connected to Atari:
The attachment s1d15705blank.jpg is no longer available

In order to connect GLCD I used both parallel ports - PORTB is a data bus and PORTA is for control signals. Actually I used only 5 signals, so rest may be use for other stuff.
