Re: Fitting a Solidisk 256Kb 2/4Meg board

I've got one of these fitted to an Issue 4 board and with the 4MHz feed soldered to a different source works very stable. Shadow RAM works fine too and the TESTRAM command tells me all is good. But for the life of me I cant load any Rom images to a sideways Ram bank whatever method I use.. The onboa...

Re: Pegasus 400 Disc Interface Electron

Well All Via's are good, all tracks confirm good. Cant find any shorts. What I can confirm though is that the 2nd ROM socket, controlled by the right jumper block does not allow the SRAM to be mapped inplace of part of the Pegasus DFS ROM, so although fitting just the DFS ROM in the 2nd socket I can...

Re: Pegasus 400 Disc Interface Electron

I will check the vias out today Dave... Just confused as to why the ADFS ROM stops the DFS ROM being seen when its plugged in. Removing the ADFS ROM sows DFS in slot zero Plugging in ADFS its seen in slot 1 but slot zero is now empty. All disc functions work perfectly when either rom is active.... Doh

Re: Pegasus 400 Disc Interface Electron

Started looking into this this morning chaps and found some funny results lol The board is configured as follows 28 Pin Sockets L-R are PEGDFS , ADFS, 6264SRAM, 1772 Jumpers L-R are D, U,U,D Which seems great.... Plug board in and ADFS works absolutely fine... DFS Rom is not even recognised by *ROMS...

Re: Pegasus 400 Disc Interface Electron

Hi everyone Thank you so much for the support... finally saw the link for the schematic lol I built 2 boards, one works perfectly ADFS and DFS the other has this ADFS issue, jumpers set the same on both boards. Pretty sure I have a trace or via issue but thanks to the schematic should be able to fix...

Pegasus 400 Disc Interface Electron

Hi Guys

Would anyone have the schematic for the Acorn Electron Pegasus Disc Interface Please..

I've got one here working perfectly with DFS but fails to Recognise any ADFS ROM.

Any single-row female 2.54mm pitch connector should work. Just be aware that, with an ST, you may need to provide a 5V supply.

The E00 elk ADFS had the SCSI code whipped out of it and needs two banks of RAM. I suspect the easiest thing would be to pull that apart and add the IDE code back in?
