Re: USB Econet (was: Can you tell what it is yet ?)

Yup, Tinc is the one. Currently I've been bridging two TAP
instances together (one attached to Tinc, the other attached
to RPCemu). I installed this setup onto two PCs and ran
SoftMDFS on one and logged in from the other over the VPN.

Re: Can you tell what it is yet ?

Because I'm obviously a 6500 fan I often use things that are simliar such as the S08 and S12 stuff from Freescale (basically grew out of Mot 6800). This particular one is a MC9S08JM60 which is steeped with features and very well priced. It has a pin for pin and feature compatible sister part, the MC...

Tip for working with Eagle layout editor:
Switch all layers off except airwires and hit ALT+F2
and that will zoom in on any small bits of unrouted
airwire..

Re: Identification of small Electron PCB

Confirm what Martin said. '244 buffer works fits. Buffers just 4 lines and the /OE line is tied low meaning they're always driving. Someone either needed to clean up some signals (the 244 is Schmitt) or needed more output current. This looks more of a "bodge/fix board" than something that would be u...

Re: BBC Master 128 RGB OUT

The Amiga outputs horizontal, vertical and combined sync on pins 11,12,and 10 respectively. Sounds like you may have wired up to pin 11 instead of pin 10. There is also some mention that the csync output might be a slightly lower output and therefore any lead you've made up dealing with 5v TTL level...

Re: AUN station number

Thanks for your reply. I thought the cmos station number was only used for real econets or AUN where "Internet" isn't configured (i.e. UDP/IP address is auto generated). But when "Internet" is configured the econet station number is made up from the IP address and AUN mapfile? That's how it seems to...

If anyone opts to take this route, it will cost you circa 150GBP to get all the bits plus the PCBs
Yikes, time to fire up the RepRap and make some clone parts.
