Re: Trusted CPU Suppliers Or Ones To Avoid

Ouch! That's brutal :( I hope you managed to get your cash back?

This thread has been an education, I think I understand the whole messy situation a lot better now.

Re: Trusted CPU Suppliers Or Ones To Avoid

I appreciate that there is no ideal solution to this. I'm happy to take a chance with second hand pulls if the vendor is honest about what they are selling, but not so happy to hand money over to someone selling reprints. To me the whole reprint thing is a joke and I don't want to encourage it out o...

Re: Trusted CPU Suppliers Or Ones To Avoid

Cheers, I had a look at that listing before but was put off by one of the recent feedback comments suggesting that they were reprints. The whole thing is a bit of a minefield! :( Not a large sample size, but I purchased 2 from this eBay listing: https://ebay.us/xy2qW2 Both were tested and ran at 40 ...

Trusted CPU Suppliers Or Ones To Avoid

Can anyone recommend a supplier for MC68EC030RP40 CPUs, or tell me any to steer clear of?

I got burnt previously when ...

Re: TF360 Discussions

Realise this thread is veering a bit off topic but I'll chip in with a bad experience I had with these 030s https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Manufacturer-MOT-MPN-MC68030RC50C-Encapsulation-PGA-32BIT-ON-CHIP-CACHE/113023358872 The two I purchased run correctly on two otherwise very stable TF330s for about ...

Messages stay in the outbox until they are read by the recipient. It's a feature ;)

Aha! Never noticed that before, cheers exxos! :oops:

I'll be polite and say that's 'quirky' :)

Re: Go0se TF534 Build

It definitely makes the board more robust, so far I've had no pin breakages since moving to the squares. The regular failure rate with the round pins was frustrating. When separating the board and the re-locator you still have to be very careful as the square headers tend to require a bit more force...
