This page was used during the initial development. With the board being available for sale the documentation and code also needed a new public home.

Thus the main information source for the MIST is now the mist board project at google and the MIST/Suska forum at


I grew up with the Atari ST and i am still fond of it. The MIST project aims to recreate one. Cheap and simple enough to be built at home just for the fun of it.

Projects the MIST is based upon

The MIST includes code, designs and concepts from various other FOSS projects. This includes:
