I have a 1541II board with a broken FDC chip (cracked, literally) thats begging for an alternate mass storage device. ;) That said, recreating the 1541 board sounds interesting. Is your idea to implement an ide-only version? If so that saves much design, as you won't need the analogue section. -jbev On Fri, 14 Dec 2007, Jim Brain wrote: > The board is sent for review, so if anyone has time this weekend to make > a last schematic validation, please do so.
