Iyonix TRM AvailableBy Peter Naulls. Published: 9th Jul 2003, 12:36:08 | Permalink | Printable
Castle PR engine at full throttle
As we mentioned previously, Castle have been working hard on a TRM, or Technical Reference Manual for their Iyonix; the availability of which we were notified about today.
The release tells us "The Technical Reference Manual is the definitive hardware reference guide to the motherboard used in the IYONIX pc and provides full technical details". It's basically everything you need to know if you want to do any kind of low-level programming accessing the hardware of the machine. Just the sort of document that would have been useful when developing the Linux port for the machine.
The Iyonix TRM follows in the footsteps of the TRMs of the RiscPC and other Acorn machines, which we host on drobe, which where invaluable for many developers creating hardware and software for the RiscPC.
The TRM is accompanied with a CD containing copies of artwork, datasheets and other information, and the TRM itself is presented in a ring binger including A2 and A3 schematics.
And the price? Castle tell us "This Technical Reference Manual (product code TEC10) is priced at £99 (delivery is £6). This remains the same, inflation-busting price as the original Risc PC manual that was released nearly 10 years ago!"
Hopefully we'll get our grubby mitts on a copy in the near future to bring you a full review.

South East 2008 theatre talk videos now online
Didn't make to the South East 2008 show in Guildford this year? Not to worry, because on top of the usual Drobe coverage, you can now watch videos of the presentations made by RISC OS Open and RISC OS Ltd staff at the event. Recorded live at the show, the videos, in which products and projects are talked up by developers to punters, also include question and answer sessions from the floor.
