Re: C-Lab MK2 CA401332-002-REVC

Thanks Steve, any Falcon investigation is always an interesting job. :)

Too bad C-Lab as a company has disappeared, it would be great to be able to ask the (then) CEO a few questions...

Re: C-Lab MK2 CA401332-002-REVC

This PCB is interesting in another way, too - it's a MK2, it's from the 09/1994 batch but still, the production number is Atari's. I would say there's a good chance that sometime during this month Falcon PCBs switched hands and started to put new production numbers. I have seen 09/1994 models with b...

Re: Ebay is great, not!

Today I had the most bizzare experience with eBay. I wasn't buying (or god forbid selling!) on eBay anything for a couple of months. Yesterday I just messaged one guy about an item, we exchanged two messages each and that was it. An hour later I got the typical non-sense email about suspended accoun...

Re: TT 030 CA400310 with 32 MHz daughter board CA400771

Thank you! I have been trying to determine whether it is TT or STE shifter here on the Sparrow development board (the "video" one on the left): post-35790-0-41587700-1369897090.jpeg I was hoping that early TTs had -001 revision instead of -001A (as the one on my photo is clearly something -001) but ...

Is something written on the TT Shifter IC? (the one in the middle, with the flash reflection).

Re: TF536 on the STacy

Hey Mikro are you aware of any lighter weight bash alternatives compiled for mint? I find bash to be very sluggish on my 030's. Of course I have tried mksh from the sparemint repo but it doesn't support bash alias commands. It's kind of funny that Linux distros are not using bash any more because t...

Re: TF536 on the STacy

Well, it does print that text message that it requires an FPU, doesn't it. ;) To complicate things even more, 020+ kernel builds do not require FPU at all. If more TF536 FreeMiNT users start popping up, we may reconsider adding another target but it's not as easy as adding one more line into our bui...

Re: Icky Projects

Sweet. :) As I faced similar problem and since I lack your 3D printing / PCB designing skills, I had to do with a home made solution: ribbon.jpg card.jpg outside.jpg The biggest hell was to flip *all* the ribbon connectors, so I could place it like that (otherwise they would go the "wrong" direction...

Re: Atari TT / MegaSTE ATX-PSU adapter

Before lowering the speed I would recommend to measure temperature inside the metal cage - after that, I assure you wont feel comfortable lowering that speed anymore. ;-) It's really super hot there, sometime I fear whether even that one fan for such a huge box is enough.

Steve - great find!
