Re: kludge’s TF530 build

Both CPLD’s, the LM1117 voltage regulator and the 6 pin header should be enough for the programmer. It worked for me.

Re: kludge’s TF530 build

My first TF530 build went up in smoke.... When first switching it on after soldering it shorted and a little fizz and smoke was all I got :o Fortunately, my Amiga 500 was still in good order and I could salvage my 68030, the RAM chips. My second attempt got somewhat better, after lots of soldering, ...

Re: Hi! Mark Fixes Stuff from the UK!

Welcome here, I've watched some of your Youtube stuff and find them quite entertaining :D. I also am a big fan of the Speccy, the Atari ST, C64, ehrmm, let's say that I like fixing/soldering retro stuff.

Re: C103175 REV 1 (520 STFM)

This looks a lot like my C103414-001 board. It has the same IMP chipset, layout is similar only on your board the memory is through hole. On my board, the memory is also SMT. The pinout of those DRAM’s should be the same as on mine, only the package is different. On my board, we’ve removed the 256kx...
