Re: Ordering the Alpha board

Re: Not Atari, but definitely 8bit (ZX81)

That's a very late ZX81, so it should have the ULA which produces a reasonable display. (The early one forgot to add a bit at the beginning of the scan line which is used to gauge the black level.

Re: C070789-001 REV .D upgrade woes

So I finaly did the epic buzz out you'd suggested, and found that on the first board tested, the A7 connection was missing on the top 2 chips in the 3rd bank of RAM (1st new bank of RAM) I added a 'Bodge wire' to make the circuit from the last good A7 pin, up to the two that were missing A7 : Bodge_...

Everyone can order now.. Actually need the orders first as I need the funds for the PCB run start with, plus all those who buy one, I will add their name to the PCB, obviously I can only do that after purchases...

EDIT: And ordered.
