These, seemingly, are easy to get hold of . . . if you want a few dozen :shock:

I'm after 4 or 6 waffle trays to store TQFP100 packages - 14mm x 14mm x 1.4mm.

Willing to pay . . .

Re: EEPROM for BBC micro

Would some series resistance, in the cable leads, help? Something like 47R to 100R - May just take away enough of the 'ringing' to get everything working!

Re: EEPROM for BBC micro

When using an EEPEOM are you suppressing R/nW e.g. with a link or other method - or is it held high permanently? I ask as you stated: "- measured pin 27 (directly on the chip which is mounted in the viglen case): it is high (proves that nWE is high)" If the EEPROM is seeing a Write signal ...

- Tin all the contacts on the Electron side with solder, to make them slightly thicker and provide a better contact surface. NO! :shock: Please don't do that - you'll just make it far worse, in the long run! The contacts, in the Plus 1 edge connector, are so designed that you can't stress them! (OK...
