Am I seeing things, or does the new dual TOS board only use 8 pins of the HI socket now? In other words just the data lines and GND?

I think the SMT pads are to big for the parts.. that's what happens when you cut corners as use "built in libs" :roll: :lol:

Not seeing things no.. I've moved the SMT socket there so pins had to go.

I've got 2 more PCBs here, so will order parts next week , see if I can build them up as pre-release boards :)

I charge more for unique items like that ;)
Seems fair, lol. Hate to think how much the missing.... err custom wired ones will be :D

Great to see all this work seems to have made a very stable booster, well done!

Quick question. Will the new accelerator work with the original dual TOS board, and if so, what mods are needed if any?

Any of my dualtos boards will work with it. Just this later one is smaller and has the UBE circuit (well will do). So its like a upgraded dualtos board.

The only minor issue is that I think the integrated blitter boards may need a 33R resistors in the ROM CE line to the booster.. but thats easy as there has to be a wire between the 2 anyway. The new dualtos boards has the resistor on the pcb.

Ahh, cool.

The STE I will likely put one of these in has the latest DualTOS board from you, PLUS one of the UBE circuits too:

:thumbup:

New boards are going to be red, so if you have colour OCD, you will have to get a red dualtos board ;)
