Re: Electron User Port & ROM/RAM Board with UPURS

Does anyone have any preferences with solder mask colour or silk screen print colour?

I thought it might be quite nice to at a glance be able to distinguish between the original boards and this new batch?

Ok I heed to the wider knowledge. :wink: Hard gold and leaded solder it is then, as far as I'm aware it's ok as long as they are not sold in the EU , so the cost will be £0 to the EU but the postage will be aweful. :mrgreen: That's that then job done as they say.

Ok so an update : Looks like this is going forward , just wanted to float a few points.

Re: Electron User Port & ROM/RAM Board with UPURS

Alex - no, if a mod is needed, it's only if you have problems using sideways ram. ROMs, EPROMs and EEPROMs work perfectly. I did the PCB design in Radio Spares' DesignSpark package and it can produce everything that Techbridge want, they've probably still got the files but you'd need to convey the ...

And if there is a curry in the offering , I'm up for that too.
