The Team

Project Owner, Project Manager, Development Engineer

I started FPGASID as a small hobby project. I simply wanted to find out how far I can get in SID emulation on an FPGA. Once I realized that there is really the chance to make something useful out of it, I went into public to see what people are thinking about it. Along with the hope to find people who can help me with the project work.

The nice picture is not showing my real face by the way. But that guy has such a nice Retro-Oculus-Rift I just had to select his face as my avatar.

PCB Design Engineer


Thomas joined the project in the preparation phase of the FPGASID_proto1 prototype. He started helping with the PCB layout and soon took the complete responsibility for the PCB artwork. Without his valuable contribution the project would still use the old eval board prototype.

How weird, but Freak is using a part of his right upper arm as avatar.


In a way my plan worked well: So far, many people helped me with small and even big issues.
I want to say Thank You to all of you who have helped me to bringing FPGASID forward!

Special credits go to these people (in order of appearance):
  • Achim, for checking my English in the very first version of this website.
  • Christian, Eric, Yves and Ingo for their valuable contribution to the audio test preparation and for lending me their fine ears to check the test cases.
  • The second Christian for the new logo of this web site. Looks much better now!
