PLCC FUNKY TO PLCC NORMAL ADAPTERS

Post by exxos » Tue Dec 12, 2017 8:44 pm

As many know I developed the funky blitter adapter kit...

Though people are having difficulties assembling this, and I do not really blame them either as it is a bit of a nightmare. I am however considering getting a batch of these made up to make life easier installing these..

So I wonder how much interest there is in having these assembled... Do not really know how much these would cost, but I would expect the price to be below £15.. I have asked for a quotation so I guess we shall see..

I have been talking to mine PCB guy, and working with him to assemble 100 of these sockets.. I will try and keep the final price as low as possible for people. I would expect somewhere around £15 per socket assembled.

Likely will be no more news now about this until the New Year...

It will take me a while to test them all as I got 100 made.. But I think they will start appearing in my store over the next few days..

Do you use any isolation material between the adapter and Atari board?

Something like some card has to be used to stop the PLCC socket from shorting on the motherboard.

I mention it on my site http://www.exxoshost.co.uk/atari/last/blitter/index.htm and on the store link.

aha thanks for pointed that. And BTW I made 2 of yours adapters and it is not hard but time demanding and you have to be really careful so it is nice you have some ready.
