Dave - check which ones they are, some of them are "bugged" and need a little mod to work.

Is there a way to tell which is which? I'll dig one out tomorrow and post an image.

Maybe it's a blind via :shock:
They were fun when they came out about 1997 when I was working with greater than 2 layers...

There were a few issues, here's some random pics coz it was a while ago.....

I think there were three potential shorting points and I found examples of each across a number of boards. I also had some (just a few I think) that were totally off the wall in that they were missing whole groups of tracks but I don't have any pictures. They were very obviously defective though as you could see the empty areas of the board quite clearly - they just looked odd!

The one you've shown certainly looks ok but it appears to be of a different 'batch' to the ones I was working with looking at the board material and the position of the lettering. The significant thing about my batch though was that I had to inspect each one because they were all subtly different in that some had satisfactory track-to-pad clearances, a fair few had copper shorts where I highlighted and the odd one was really bad to the point of being tricky to repair.

'If' I get time I could check it against the schematics prime put together . . .

Unless someone else has some time? :roll:

Hi,

I was going get some more Slogger PCB made, but then I was sold a Slogger interface.

I do not like the silver tracks and contacts, no solder mask.

Do you think if I got new PCBs made with solder mask, would there be a demand for a finished board or a kit.
Regards,

Derek

Hello Dave,

Brand new member here! I'd be interested in a couple of those Pegasus PCB's. Could you please PM me?

Thanks

Bit of a wild chance , but are there any of those stop press boards left?

I assume the phrase 'Hens Teeth' springs to mind? :)

I think I have a few, but no details about them. I have a built unit and need to reverse engineer it. Away in Spain for a week. Give me a shout when I'm back.

If you're in the market for a turbo, I'd seriously consider going the full hog and nobbling a Master RAM board - I think Prime still has some of the up to date versions?

Found the thread: viewtopic.php?f=3&t=9820

Worth noting, both of these upgrades involves desoldering the 6502, and you need to get it out in once piece to stick in the turbo board or MRB (unless you have a spare knocking about).

So the SP64 boards went out over 5 years ago, anyone actually built them and have them working?

Sounds like Dave has a working board, can you provide any details as to what's on it? Do you also have the elusive OS 3.10 for it?

Sorry, going to be a while (maybe 3 weeks recovery) before I can get back to the workshop.
