I am trying to replicate the Gigatron
schematic page 50
and came up to this point
This eprom needs some data of course and I looked here :
I downloaded it because it doesn't seem to show its raw contents on Github. Opened it with Notepad++ but only saw yibberish.
In the assumption that the Simulide rom package can only handle hex-numbers I spent the next two hours looking for ways to open this rom-file and/or if a hex-file from this project already existed somewhere. Didnt want to install unknown programs and didn't find a solution. In the end, in Simulide I clicked on the eprom, clicked load data, navigated to the rom-file and clicked open. Surprise, it opened and at least gave response to the input address lines. Rightclicked again, clicked save data and a data-file was generated which I could see with notepad
My question, is this the exact representation in decimals of the original rom-file and so will it work the same? In other words, is the Simulide data-file exactly the same as the Github rom-file? Or are these just random numbers in the data-file caused by the file 'transformation' ?
Sorry about the extensive post, but can't describe it much shorter. Also hope that other users can get some usefull information from this or maybe even better can answer this thing I don't understand.
