You need a various pcb box. Icky probably has a label you could use once you've got one.
I did start putting all pcbs in a drawer a while ago.. but these pcbs seem to have pre-dated that "move".. Guess I will look again..

Which is fair enough as it was over a year ago you got them.

If you reorder them, I'd be willing to contribute towards a couple of them?
If it ain't broke, test it to Destruction.

I found these chips in "the pile" So must have been one of the chips I planned on using..

This one buffers and cleans up the Digital output from.. whatever the chip is called :)

FMS6146MTC14X


This one buffers and outputs Svideo

FMS6400

Though is hard to find other than "iffy" suppliers or sources..

Don't worry RJ, I'd have broken it before you've built it.

(Thanks exxos btw)
