@benur75 As the guys say you're going to need a way to relocate the CPU socket away from it's current position. It is something that @stephen_usher is working on and I've made some simple relocators but these need testing before its safe to say you can run a TF536 in an STFM.

So As happy as I am to sell you a TF536, I would suggest maybe waiting a week or two, so that we can provide you with all the facts needed to get it up and running. There may even be an STe adaptor available at some point, just not yet.

That said, postage is likely to be around £15 for trackable delivery to France.
If it ain't broke, test it to Destruction.

(I haven't fitted the IDE headers to this TF536 since I'm waiting for a relocator PCB to arrive)

You have to ditch the metal shielding, and raise the TF536 with some additional sockets to clear that external floppy connector but otherwise it fits extremely well in this particular model.

If the IDE connector is pointing upward then you wont be able to fit the keyboard, but soldering it so the pins face down should do the trick. Or by making some sort of relocator board for the IDE - I did that for the TF534 and it worked a treat, letting me completely close up the machine.

Hello,

Are these just for the ST/STe series or can TF536 be used with MegaSTE/TT/Falcon?

Just for the ST/F/M and Mega ST at the moment.

There is an accelerator card for TT coming (From Storm/Thunder team). The Falcon got CT60 card.

Yeah, they are sold out. Maybe someone bought more then one, are willing to sell in the future. Or that Willy does more runs of the board. Who knows.
