MiSTer FPGA Hardware

The MiSTer is a project that uses a DE-10 Nano FPGA kit to emulate console, computer and arcade cores.  Here’s the necessary hardware:

FPGA Kit

USB Hub

The only USB port accessible to us is the MicroUSB port in the front, all the way to the right.  You can get a cheap, passive hub if you just need a controller adapter.  A powered USB hub is required for the WiFi module.

Powered 7-Port USB Hub – (both cable and hub are required):

A USB keyboard is also required for setup (hit F12).

 

WiFi Modules

Compatibility is very spotty with WiFi modules.  What’s confirmed and working from some people is not from others.
Tested and working on my setup:  https://amzn.to/2RP2tRS
Other people’s recommendation (I ordered one to test as well):  https://amzn.to/2WlBOuu

 

As an FYI, some cores can run on just the DE-10 alone without the RAM expansion, so you can start playing around with it as soon as the dev board arrives.

This page will be updated as the project continues, but for now here’s a link to the main github page:  https://github.com/MiSTer-devel/Main_MiSTer/wiki
