    Was wondering, as I'm building an IDE to EXI adapter for my gamecube, which requires an old PS2 modchip (based on a xilinx chip) for some reason.
    The only modchip I can seem to find for the PS2 is the Modbo 5.0. Does anybody know if it uses a xilinx chip?

    Googled around to no avail, figured this would be the best place to check.


    Thanks in advance!

    I would say no. quick googling shows that the XC95144XL was generally used in cheaper / non-branded modchips and comparing the XC95144XL to the chip on the Modbo 5.0 it looks different

    Alright, thanks. Do you have any idea where I could find a chip with the XC95144XL/a name that uses it?

    To be honest not really, only 2 names i could find with regards with this particular chip are the RIPPER III clone, MAGIC-S. Good luck

    you may be looking at this the wrong way ... its 3:43am for me so thinking isn't the clearest (not to mention the pain killers ) but there may be another way than tracking down a long forgotten modchip

    Oh yeah, I could just order a custom pcb with the CPLD etc., I just wanted to avoid that because I'm lazy haha. I'll probably just end up doing that.
