Hi Nicolas,

> Nowadays, there is also the Final Expansion 3 and other multi-cartridges for the VIC-20. Being very late to follow these developments, I just ordered empty PCBs from for the FE3 and found that some parts on it became obsolete already. I think I managed to source them and I'm curious how it will work for me.

I'm for(;;) and have been distributing the FE3 for a while.

 I'm wondering which parts you're regarding as  "obsolete".

In fact, ALPS has anounced the SD slot as beeing at the end of it's production life but it still is available in large quantities.
The CPLDs by Atmel are still available too and might be replaced by compatible parts by Altera.
In doubt, I'd like to offer to have a look if the parts you sourced are compatible or not.
