VIA meets SCI

PCB Status

Currently, we have a some prototypes ready.
Below you can see two nice pictures of the board.

So far the board is running very well and we were able to transfer the first bytes over the SCI link between two cards.
For now the hardware implements a so called Manual Packet Mode that is used to transfer manually assembled SCI (or rather BLINK) packets.
Also the the PCI Master is implemented to get access to the hosts' main memory.
