Woohoo mine arrived today, it seems the delay was due to it being sent to number 11 instead of number 111 :lol:

Looks really nicely done on the underside, for sure that is the way forward. The time saving alone is worth the cost of the card.

I'm a bit busy with other stuff today, but should be able to make a start on it tomorrow, so fingers crossed I will be pimping my SMD 500+ with this beauty.

I'm such a knobbler!
I had everything ready, started to build it and it wow nice, it almost falls together! Having the underside prebuilt is a great time saver.
Anyhow, I get to the very last component, the oscillator and realise its supposed to be 100mhz. Doh, I only have 50 :(

RS should be delivering one tomorrow...

Great work on this though Stephen, it really is a nice looking and well designed board.

A lot of effort went into making it simple and easy to build

Managed to find a few minutes between household duties to get the CPLD soldered and programmed. Just RAM, CPU socket, buffers and header pins to go.

Suppose i'd better share my alpha firmware
tf536r2_main_top_test.zip
Does this work ok with the buffered IDE?
I didnt get the IDE to recognise at all, so I removed IC4/5/6, replaced the 0 ohm resistors and it booted fine.

mine was built without the buffer which as you say works fine. Not tried with.
If it ain't broke, test it to Destruction.

I have no interest in buffered IDE so i havent tried it. I basically copied a circuit from an IDE buffer setup but this is as far as i'm prepared to go with it.
