Built-up 6 boards almost... 2 of them the CPUs went wonky :roll: I pasted the CPU pads, melted the solder, then pasted again like it did before, the problem is that it is very difficult to get the CPU to stay straight on the pads.. The next few I build I will just use one layer of paste..

So far this board is working.. I have not added on the resistor SIPs yet, I am waiting for them to arrive..

I will likely build up two or three as pre-release versions at a discount next week for forum members who are willing to try it out :)

Looking good to me again. Count me in for the test program if you'd like.
If it ain't broke, test it to Destruction.

Count me in as a possible early adopter, I have a second STE already running the TOS switcher.

I'd possibly even be prepared to try building it :o

New dual tos board assembled tested and working :) I got a couple of sample chips for the "UBE Switch" so some point I need to test that out as well :)

Switch connects to the reset line so that pressing the reset button twice or something switches the TOS version.. Honestly can't remember how it works now :lol: ??
