Anyone know where to find a QFP version?

They claim to have a "32-pin QFP" but i never in my time seen it at any store online. Which leaves me to think wtf why not lol

They would sell more if it was out in QFP.

If there is no QFP version available.... does anyone know a similar chip?

FreeDOS is made of mostly C with some assembler thrown in.

It's totally non-portable and works only on x86 architecture so you can forget using it on a microcontroller.

ok cool no problem. I got a nice idea on using this MicroChip MDD-FS i got it working on a 18F so now ima buy a

dsPIC33FJ128GP202 ($5) cheap! lots of memory and ram and stuff. 2 SPI. Maybe i can create my own DosOnChip with it easy! If i do ill be sure to make it OpenSource!

EDIT(Sorry, mixed up my QFP's and QFN's) I bought it and regret it. I was hoping it would be an easy deal, but it's proprietary nature, the new command structure that they offer, the cost of the chips and the slow speed of the card read/writes makes it not worth the money.

I should sell off the breakout board that I made.

You're doing the right thing making your own solution. I have no suggestions other than what we've already discussed a while ago. The FatFS filesystem is still working for me.

If you can get the C18 one working, there's no need to try others really, but so far I've ported the FatFS library over to three micocontrollers, so it's helpful that I have a standard library.

heh any tips on the fatFS?

Sorry, I just saw this.

Unfortunately the sample code is far more complex than it needs to be. Get rid of all the RTC code and just set the date and time to defined values. The other complex thing is the interrupt delay code they want you to use to timeout errored commands. I just replaced it with 'for' loops to try the command a set number of times.

For the library itself you should just have to modify one file. diskio.c ( the sample projects renamed diskio.c to something else. I don't know why) which contains all the hardware specific functions.

I can give you the files I used for testing with my 8bit uC. I haven't used that code since the original test, though. I'll have to see what it looks like.
