Re: STE V1.5 32MHz BOOSTER - STATUS

I have a feeling I've asked this once and now forgotten what the answer was. Sorry, but:

Can these be switched between 8/max while running, without the STE locking up?

Re: Rescuing an ancient 520ST

I didn't get this ST to boot immediately, but since my main interest were the Shifter and GLUE chips I just transplanted them to my 520STM rev.I. Success :D Closure non-stabilizer fullscreens indeed have a visible issue (every second line, every second 16 pixels black) - and it's a short top border ...

Re: C070243 REV.H

That looks to be a rather neat RAM board actually. The regular 41256 chips are 16 pin 256kx1, and the only real option is to piggyback another 512KB on top of the existing. That board takes 18 pin chips which means you can use 421000 (511000 in this case) which are 1Mx1. So, that should be a 2MB RAM...

Re: C070115 REV.2B (520ST 08/1985)

Maybe its one of the very early machines produced ? Yeah compare this motherboard with all the other ST(M) revisions posted on this board. Many many differences, not just the filters. Also the coil by the power connector. No "motherboard cap" near RAM etc. duh: Scrap that about 2B before B - it's t...

This one doesn't have the CSYNC patch for non -M versions. Very interesting revision this :)

Isn't the -38 the shifter the one you was on about ? (can't remember off-hand sorry)
Yes - and my REV.B has one as well :) This seems to be a revision from just before that one. Interesting that "2B" comes before "B".
