MiSTer Multisystem FPGA based Console, Arcade and Classic Computer Gaming System

The MiSTer Multisystem FPGA based gaming platform, is a design collaboration between Heber Ltd. and The Retro Group Ltd.

Where can I buy the Multisystem?

We hope to continue many more developments for the retro gaming and classic computer market, the start of this journey is the Multisystem, if you wish to purchase the Multisystem head over to RMCRetro and select an all-in-one motherboard, system bundle and even a 3D printed enclosure to complete the console design.

RMC Retro / The Retro Group Ltd-

The Multisystem can be purchased via RMC Retro Assembled board only, 3D printed enclosures and premium bundles are all available to buy now.

Neil Thomas has a very popular YouTube channel dedicated to the restoration of classic computers, consoles and technology.

Neil is also building an exhibition space, museum and archive to allow people to experience all things retro and gaming. For further information about the ongoing developments at RMC The Cave, you can follow Neil over on Twitter @RMCRetro

What is the Multisystem?

The Multisystem is an all-in-one motherboard that combines a number of existing MiSTer hardware developments, and adds more expandability whilst keeping 100% compatible with the MiSTer Project.

We have Combined a V6.1 I/O board / 7 port USB Hub / SDRAM 128MB / ADC In & Out / SNAC port with integrated level shifter / HDMI isolator / RGB SCART / Multi purpose Expansion I/O port / TOSlink optical and both overcurrent and overvoltage protection, along with an integrated power on/off switch. All of this in a 170mm x 170mm mini-ITX console formfactor.

What is MiSTer?

The MiSTer project started as a previous custom FPGA Design (the MiST) around 2014, this was designed to replicate the custom hardware found in the Atari ST and Commodore Amiga 16bit computers from the late 80’s.

A number of other FPGA ‘cores’ were developed and several thousand MiST boards were sold over the years until the DE10-Nano development board was released in late 2017. MiST was ported over and the project grew into multiple different cores and hardware add-on’s.

The Heber MiSTer Multisystem is designed to work with the popular open-source MiSTer Project. – misterfpga.org

The lead MiSTer designer is Alexey Melnikov (sorgelig), he has developed both the open-source hardware and operating system running on MiSTer. You can support Alexey and the many of the FPGA core developers via Patreon, links can be found via the dedicated forum for the MiSTer FPGA project.

The project can also be explored via the Wiki – https://github.com/MiSTer-devel/Main_MiSTer/wiki

Thank you to everyone working on hardware, firmware, cores and software for the MiSTer FPGA project and support eco-system.

The MiSTer Multisystem will allow you to run a large range of FPGA ‘Cores’ that provide simulation the actual hardware used in classic computers, consoles, Arcade and entertainment electronics from the 1970’s, 80’s and 90′.

If you like retro gaming and classic computers, then the Multisystem could be just what you need.
