Re: STE V1.5 32MHz BOOSTER - STATUS

Quick update... I've baged the 3 new dual tos and booster boards off to be assembled, i've asked for ASAP service... I just can't find the time for soldering stuff these days :(

Re: STFM case remake

Just to let people know, I finally got a refund via paypal for the bulk of the amount! Probably the first time in 15 years PayPal actually helped me with something! :shock: Icky is still working on the 3D files. After we made a closer inspection of the files, they are riddled with errors and mistake...

Re: AES 3.4 into Tos 2.06/3.06

I think TOS206 desktop is good how it is. Sure 404 on falcon may have nicer things, but different hardware, video modes. Oddly some things in 206 run slower than 104, so sometimes updating things are not so good.

Re: Future PSU designs

I loaded 5V rail with about a 1R resistor, so the current draw was about 5.2amps.. The ST typically pulls about 2amps, so this is a somewhat unfair test.. But I wanted to see whether thermal hotspots were on the PCB. The load resistor was certainly very hot.. IMG_2721.JPG So onto the PCB.. IMG_2723....

Re: Mega ST video output oddity

Sounds like loading on the ROM cart seems to help ? Probably change the SIL's for 2.2K... Had similar problem on my STE few weeks ago, machine would fail to boot when diagnostic cart inserted due to bus loading issues. Sounds like you got almost reverse problem to that.

Re: Future PSU designs

The colours are wired into the transformer.. that's nothing I can change.. the colours are printed on the side on the transformer from factory for how to wire the voltages up, I will do a couple images on how to wire up anyway.

Re: 1040STe locks up or bombs out after warming up

I would change the CPU.. then change the SIL's for 2.2K. (P100 should be 1.2K)
