Re: V2.5 BOOSTER CURRENT PROTOTYPE STATUS (SEC BOOSTER)

Had a thought to speed up routing.. Basically route everything on the top layer, then use the change tool to change the track layer afterwards. This saves me having to constantly go to the menu to change layers, and I also do not have the place the vias, as they are done automatically when changing ...

Re: R205 100 ohm resistor in SR98 starting to get hot and smell

Question for Exxos - there is one cap left on the board C206 that does not have a replacement (see cap with dot on top in pic). Does that also need replacing or is it worth replacing with a new one? There is a huge thread on this somewhere, basically is purposely not changed.. I think the bottom li...

Re: ST RTC EXTERNAL BETA - WIP

I think the PCB ended up a expensive 4 layer to route how I wanted. The original was 2 layers, but I also had the problem of stocking the same RTC twice, so I was trying to reduce some costs, but it made the PCB expensive instead, so didn't really help. I wanted to keep a solid gnd and 5V layer to h...

Re: ST RTC EXTERNAL BETA - WIP

Will you have another batch of the cartridge adapter? i'd like to install mine externally. (i'm more or less back to atari stuff and am currently working on modding my gotek btw). I don't think so no.. was a thread about it, wasn't enough interest to invest in making them. I only made 3 prototypes,...

FOR SALE - AMIGA 500 X2 UK

I brought 2 Amiga 500's some years ago £60 each. I am not sure what the going rate is for them, so open to reasonable offers. Would prefer to sell both together. Only powered them up once when I got them, been in the loft the past few years. AFAIK they have a PSU each.. I think they are in reasonabl...
