Iím busy with stuff so not much to report. I had to restart Rhea PCB design as Iíve decided to try a different MCU Ė itís a bit more expensive but has more RAM and smaller package, both of which are useful for this project.
This is Rhea V1.5, itís not pretty but works great so far:
Obviously it was never intended to be permanently installed inside Saturn (though I guess it could be with some glue gun help).
There have been some questions about that so let me make this clear: Rhea is not going to be faster than original Saturn drive. Maybe a bit due to almost instantaneous media seeking but thatís it. Unlike Dreamcast where data bus is faster than drive, Saturn is limited by its serial protocol Ė which is set to exactly 2x speed and that canít be changed.
