TerribleFire 328/330 Support (CD32)

Post by terriblefire » Mon Nov 12, 2018 9:19 pm

Hi folks,

This thread is for TF330/328 support. Pretty much @supaduper knows everything there is to know about the TF328. So he can help out. If you really want bare 328 boards i sell em on ebay with the logo. I recommend just paying supaduper to build you one.

As i build the first 330 i'll post pictures here.

you asked in your Nov 11 youtube post if people would like to see the TF330.. yes I would
I recently just got the tf328 and a riser for my cd32 that was sitting for years been having lots of fun with it worth it, only found it by accident looking around on ebay

I think if the TF330 I'd snap one up right away too, although I'd have to someone build it for me my eyesight isn't that good to work on small things even with a magnifying glass

nils, if you're one of those who bought the card from me, thank you. The TF330 will most likely be available from the same people that are building the rest of Stephen's cards, such as 8 bit dreams, supaduper and me.

The biggest challenge here will be securing a good supply of 68030 CPUs. I want to try and keep the prices as low as possible before certain resellers try to make a quick buck on them as we've seen happen from time to time ;-)

I had found a good source of CPUs for the TF530 run but now that one has been exhausted...

There are hundreds available on ebay. The MC68030RP33B is the way to go. they run at 50Mhz fine from what i can tell.

I wasn't able to send a private msg so please keep me updated when you have something going

I will need to find a place to recap the CD32(I should do it before it has a problem it appears to be fine right now) and an Amiga 4000 MB(the 4000 needs a trace repaired at one of the caps)

Get your CD32 recapped even if it seems fine, chances are the old caps are already leaking merrily all over the board. The PAL units are particularly problematic as they have 2 caps factory mounted backwards (not the case with NTSC units). Where are you located?
