Howdy, definitely late to this party. Although I hand wired one of these on a trimmed down Apple II prototyping board and it worked first go, I love the look of this board. How much would it be to send me a bare board to Toronto, Ontario, Canada. Postal code M5S 2X9. Very sharp! Cheers. Hi, Sorry f...

Thanks for all your support, useful hints and excuses :lol: Checking the voltage on the eprom was the first thing I did - it took me only a few days to start checking. Customers are always fuzzy, expect them to do the unexpected (such as not buying a diode, leaving out optional components or even r...

Re: ELECTRON User Port & ROM/RAM Board with UPURS - NOW AVAILABLE

I have MMFS now running without any errors (for now). I use an unmodified UPRR board with U/EMMFS v1.36. It reads files from the MMC card and I could also format a disk, write a small program to this disk, power cycle the Electron and load the small program without any errors. I could also write a ...

Thanks for that Roland, good news... :D This does actually fit with all my development testing experiences (albeit non-MMC) but even so, I do still have a little tweak in mind to kill the glitches in case anyone has an affected set-up such as Dave has found. I've always made quite clear the need fo...

Re: ELECTRON User Port & ROM/RAM Board with UPURS - NOW AVAILABLE

Was a workable solution ever finalised regarding the timing issues mentioned about using MMC/SD solutions. I've just bought two of Charlie's quite frankly awesome SD card readers and was wondering what ROM is the best to use with them and if any board modification is required on the EUP? BTW : I sti...

Re: ELECTRON User Port & ROM/RAM Board with UPURS - NOW AVAILABLE

But, just to be clear for everyone on the other issue, the connectors must go on the non-component side, they are electrically reversed if not. Colin will have to move his.... :( Im going to edit the sheet that i send out and put in bold that the connectors go on the flip side of the board. :!:

*** Alert! *** Colin - you haven't soldered either of those 20-ways User Port connectors have you?
