    Hi,

    as such a thread didn't exist yet, I though it was time to create one :110:. I have attached links to some of the more interesting documentation files for the PS2 hardware; nothing new for old school members, but it might be useful to have them all listed in one location.

    If you have any other files you want to contribute to this thread, please respond or PM so I can add them to the first post.

    Contributors in alphabetical order (see Contents Overview and Update History below for details):
    ChiefPFF, lherre, Ralek, unclejun

    Contents Overview
    The Service Manuals are just that: official Sony service manuals, including Exploded Views, Block Diagram, Printed Wiring Boards, Schematics and Electrical Parts Lists. Attached to the one for the SCPH-30000 series is the official disassembly manual, just in case anyone wants to know how a PS2 shall be disassembled The Official Way ;-).
    Many thanks to lherre and ChiefPFF for providing some of these manuals.

    Hardware Documentation includes the manuals from the PS2 Linux Kit (English). According to Ralek, these manuals are identical to the one from the v5 documentation set. The SPU2 overview manual is missing in the PS2 Linux kit.
    Many thanks to Ralek for providing a full version 6 documentation set (including SPU2) and to unclejun for providing the v4 SPU2 overview manual as well as the complete PS2 2001 Technical Reference Disc :thumbsup:.

    The Sony Libraries section includes the DNAS SDK (NoHDD Version) Release 3.0. Many thanks to lherre for providing this file!

    Some people might wonder about the LSI Logic 1394 Documentation and how they are related to the PS2. In fact, the 1394/FireWire/i.Link controller of the earlier models (SCPH-30000 series) uses parts from the 1394 Lead Vehicle discussed in one of these documents (the other ones describe related controllers, which is needed sometimes to understand the big one). So, if anybody wants to use 1394 in his homebrewn programs, these documents could proof really useful, as there is no other documentation on the PS2 hardware registers related to this port.
    Of course, the PS2 uses a different base address and not all registers are mapped; for example, some DMA-related ones are missing. However, PHT, UBUF (for PIO-mode data transmissions) and also DMA are available and work well :nod:.

    Special thanks to sp193 for providing these additional information:

    Other bits and Pieces includes stuff that didn't fit into any other section. "DVD-ROM Block Adjustment JIG" and "Basic Process of Adjustment for DVD-ROM" are a kind of "cheat sheet" for servicing a PS2's optical drive. The first page lists the required hardware and software tools (including a picture of the official service hardware), the second one provides a brief overview of the software tools. The software tools themselves are not included :katamari:.
    "Serial Label Operating Standard for PS2" provides information on how console serial numbers are handled.
    Last but not least, I uploaded some scans of the DTL-T10000 instruction manual (english part only).


    Best regards,
    SilverBull

    Glad to hear, looking forward to whatever you find :thumbsup:.

    I have a hardcopy of the DTL-P11007 (SPU2 Overview) manual version 3, but unfortunately its in japanese :banghead:. However, parts of the technical reference information (register names, parameter value encodings etc.) are in english, so one could possibly get some information out of it. Could make some hi-res scans if there is any interest, but that would have to wait a few weeks until I can get back to where it is located.

    Ah, that's a shame. I was after a more general overview of the chip's capabilities, rather than low-level stuff. It's probably not worth your hassle scanning it in, but if you were going to scan it anyway, I'd still be interested in taking a look.

    First post, so don't kill me

    I noticed that the set of System Docs in the first post was only edition 5, so I uploaded the full set of edition 6.
    http://rapidshare.com/files/146953085/SystemDocs6.0.rar.html - Pass is "ASSEMblergames.com"
    This includes:
    EE_Core_Instruction_Set_Manual.pdf
    EE_Core_Users_Manual.pdf
    EE_Overview_Manual.pdf
    EE_Users_Manual.pdf
    GS_Users_Manual.pdf
    GS_Users_Manual_Supplement.pdf
    INDEX.PDX
    Restrictions.pdf
    SPU2_Overview_Manual.pdf
    VU_Users_Manual.pdf

    I'm also trying to upload another document set, the korean version of the PS2 SDK 3.0.0 docs.
    My internet's acting up at the moment, randomly cutting out during the upload, so i'll update this post when its up.

    Update:
    Ok, finally got the korean docs uploaded.
    http://rapidshare.com/files/147042810/tools_libs-docs-3.0.0-korean.rar.html - Pass is "ASSEMblergames.com"

    Found this on a korean developer's website a few years ago. Not sure if this will be of use to anyone, but figured i'd share it anyway.

    unclejun, thanks for sharing.

    I'm going to add the password to every single link in the first post, should make it easier to be recognized.
