Optimized PCB layout
Optimized PCB size
Actel chip now has smaller package size
Hardware code revised to over increased stability and patching performance
Revised the installation point of Q, which now becomes C on the V12-V13 and V14 series of PS2 consoles.
(Installation on V1-V11 remains unchanged)
Serial flash technology
Improved error checking
Improved filtering of noise
Details of new Hardware code:
We have vastly enhanced the DMS4 SE Code to provide better patching performance, this involved editing our CDVD patching routines. We have also improved on the flash interface code by altering the communication method between the Actel and the flash. Ground bounce is not an issue on the S.E., we have fine tuned the PCB layout and optimized the FPGA routing to ensure optimal performance. The noise filtering and data error checking code of the original DMS4 has been strengthened, building on the success of the original code.
Upgrading the S.E.:
The new flash type significantly reduces the chances of data corruption during reflash. We also include a routine to check the integirty of data as it's programmed to the flash. Flashing is now faster and less prone to error.
The S.E. can be upgraded via CD, Network, USB or memory card.
