A potential run of BeebSCSI 7.7 (the newest)

Post by danielj » Thu Mar 07, 2019 7:36 am

Hullo!
I've got some PCBs on order for the latest revision of SimonI's excellent beebscsi that connects to the 1MHz buse:
https://www.domesday86.com/?page_id=689

These can be mounted internally in the Master (with an additional adaptor) and operate as the VFS portion of an LV-ROM player. At present I don't have any of these on order, but if there's enough interest I could do a run of these too.

These can be made in the standard or right angle configurations (please check here: https://www.domesday86.com/?page_id=409), certainly for mounting internally I'd suggest the standard. They also work well with the AP5 on the elk! :)

At this stage, I think they're going to come in at about £40 £45 built + Postage, and if I go ahead I'll be asking for payment in advance before I order the components (it's a fairly chunky outlay that I'd rather not make unless I'm sure they're all going somewhere!). Please can you post interest in this thread, and additionally indicate whether you'd be interested in the VFS adaptor. These can be daisychained with anything else you'd care to stick on the 1MHz bus :)

Sounds good Daniel, thanks for doing this. If I could have two of these and ideally one VFS adapter that'd be great.

OK - just to say, I'd need 10 people to be interested in VFS adaptors to make it worth my while on those. I've not ordered any boards for them.

Okay, I'm going to have to draw a line here >------------< - (it might be a bit higher depending on a couple of other things). But basically I've accounted for all 20 PCBs now. I'll put a list together in this thread, alongside reserves, and start taking payment when the PCBs arrive in a week or so. If you want to be added to the bottom of the list, please continue to post, but you might be disappointed :(

-> Right, there's not enough demand for me to make VFS boards. Please say if that changes things and I'll move people up if you're no longer interested.

I’d like two without the adaptor if I’m not too late for this run or otherwise to myself down for the next time around if there is one... happy to pay upfront...

Please could I buy one of the BeebSCSI units that will sit outside a Master (I need to be able to get at the SD card easily - unless there's some sort of adapter that allows that on the internal one?). I don't need the VFS.

Many thanks.

Welcome to the forum! :) Added you to the list, but please do bear in mind that below the line is currently the "reserve" list.

Thank you :)

As I'm only just registered I can't PM anyone yet, and would have asked this by PM if I could. I realise I'm being very cheeky, but is there any way to make it worth your while for the reserve list to become "not a reserve list any more" ??

We see how boggle eyed I am after doing the initial 20. It's taken me a year to recover from doing the last lot by hand! :D

I did at the top. Their use is very limited at the moment, they let the beebscsi operate as the vfs portion of an lvrom player on the master's internal connector (and issue the laser disc control codes from its serial output). It's read only and hence probably more of a curiousity at the moment than anything useful?
