Re: STFM case remake

OK so maybe not going mad :)

Yes changed need to be done.. the 3D files are not 100%, hence the 3D print to verify its 100% stock first.. but 3 months later and still no case :( Even so, a second prototype would need to be done with changes.. that's another £450...

.. and perfect fit 8-) 3rd time's the charm!

Will try and find some time to build it up soon and test.. but as its basically a clone of the V1 booster then it should work OK..

Ok, I fixed the lib , odd pin on top, even pin on bottom. I'm checking to make sure the pins are correct and will send you the new version..
:) Sleep time for me soon , so will look tomorrow :)

Re: 16BIT ROM CART THOUGHTS

Somehow the layer got swapped. We need to put the top on the bottom and bottom on the top. yes.. No idea how this happened. I know I had some confusion over this a while ago and you did edit the lib, but I put back to older version as I think after your edit, the 2 gnd wires were at the top, so it ...

Re: 16BIT ROM CART THOUGHTS

So my connector is al wrong ? I believe I followed this : http://info-coach.fr/atari/hardware/interfaces.php#if_cartridge pinout is correct I think on site, and your pinout follows that... but on the actual PCB part the layer order is wrong... Site has pin 38 & pin 40 as GND.. and your schematic sh...

Re: 16BIT ROM CART THOUGHTS

I updated my post with more info. I found plenty of places where A15 is connected , as well as ROM4 and ROM3 , for 128K cartridge Looking at the proper diag-cart, ROM4 is jumpered, ROM 3 isn't.. so for that cart ROM3 does not seem to be used. There also jumpers for 64K/128K which is open... 256K is...

Re: 16BIT ROM CART THOUGHTS

And S1, S2 and S3 are grounded in your test ? Also you could wire /OE to ground and rely on ROM4 to select the chip. Have you try checking what's going on when ROM4 goes LOW on /UDS, /LDS, /CE and /OE ? All switches are gnd yes... /OE is 0.76V (drop over diode).. /CE is high :shrug: I only check wi...

Re: 16BIT ROM CART THOUGHTS

New ROM still not working :( Here is the schematic in case I did something stupid... Though I did wire A15 which isn't actually used on the diag-cart.. It could be HI and selecting the wrong ROM location.. cart.png EDIT: Yep A15 seems to be high :roll: So I have cut the track and hardwired to 0V and...
