NetUSBee Build

Post by rubber_jonnie » Wed Aug 07, 2019 1:58 pm

So, a while back, I got some boards from Sety as mentioned here: viewtopic.php?f=11&t=1588&hilit=pcb+set

Since the NetUSBee is the smallest board with the least parts (Compared to the TF520 and TF530 I also got), I've decided to have a crack at building it soon.

First off is to get the parts, and I've managed to get the main chip so far, the RTL8019AS, and I should have a lot of the discrete parts in my workshop.

Next up, if anybody has built one of these and has any advice, I'd be grateful to hear it!!

Hi RJ,

Got a working one myself, so no help there I'm afraid.

I was just going to say that the 520 and 530 parent really compatible with an Atari, so I wouldn't worry about those unless you have an Amiga you want to boost as well.
If it ain't broke, test it to Destruction.

I do have an Amiga, but it's a 1200 with a trapdoor 030 accelerator & FPU, so TF board not really necessary.

Maybe I need to get more Amigas so I can build them :)

@rubber_jonnie , did you every build it. I have one of the boards and figured if you got yours running i'd give it a try.
