Its not as hard as it sounds. I'll supply a 64pin socket for you guys to fit.
But socketed ROMs reduce the installation problems, rip em out, and install my modified 32pin chips. With a nice switch for 1.xx / 2.06 select.
I'll supply advice on how to jumper the motherboards so they work.

16/32 have unused TT keyboards at very reasonable prices. I've already bought two.ralcool wrote:However, the final design is (should be) capable of TOS flashing, 1.xx / 2.06 and IDE control. On a single layer board.
There will be some top links, but nothing major.
Will you sell these? I have a 520 that I would love to fit with IDE and a CF-card filled with games.

Looking forward to sending you one Spiny.
edit, I apologise to the STE owners, but it is so much harder given I don't have one to play with- and they don't lend themselves to easy chip mounting of accessories.

ralcool wrote:PS, I will gladly sell you a IDE / TOS board once I have proven my latest CAD board is okay. (I know the design/logic is sound- this version is mearly derivative from what I'm using now)
This is more just proving the routing and PCB of this version is correct. Nothing major. Price will be minimal. Let me test the prototype, and all systems are GO!

Surely the space above the CPU on the STacy is far too tight for another board?
