Re: Fuller FD42 Keyboard

Or maybe you give it some time. People here are very helpful. But since this is sparetime hobby, help here is secondary to other chores like daytime work. Yes, that's basically what I said in my message to Paul that he's probably not had time to send them yet but I'd expect a reply a least to let m...

Re: Fuller FD42 Keyboard

Well I'm back to square one with the edge connectors, whilst I was waiting for Pokemon to return Paul contacted me directly by email saying he had some he could sell to me so a friend of mine sent a payment via PayPal to Paul as I don't use PayPal personally and I've heard nothing back since. It's b...

Re: Fuller FD42 Keyboard

I Googled bridge rectifiers yesterday and read up a little regarding the diode bridge. Thanks for that info. I will go for the four 1N400x diodes as you've suggested Mark. I think you'll enjoy this keyboard. From what I've read in these forums, it's the keyboard to run for. Thanks, I'm looking forwa...

Re: Fuller FD42 Keyboard

Thanks guys that's great. I'm glad that there's a simple SD extension I can add without modifying the Zxpand+. I'll definately add the 1N400x diode. With the barrel jack socket and rocker switch installed on the back of the Fuller case I was then going to hardwire the board directly from the switch ...

Re: Fuller FD42 Keyboard

Once I've got the extension made up I'm planning to install a barrel jack socket connected to an on/off rocker switch so I can use a good quality modern barrel type power supply of the correct rating. I should also modify the Zxpand+ so I can have the SDcard on the back of the case too. Any advice w...

Re: Fuller FD42 Keyboard

Re: Fuller FD42 Keyboard

Hi all, I'm getting back to finally sorting out the recreated FD42 extension board. Mr Robot on the AtariAge forums kindly created the PCB layout for me. Thanks also to Charles/Gammaray for the correct dimensions of the expansion port BUS. I took Marks advice to go with header pins for the vertical ...
