Hallo Ruud, > One curious question: why didn't you wire pin 7 as well? I always use an > Hercules-monitor as monitor when repairing CBM's or PET'S. And the > monochrome/graphic signal is on pin 7. Good question. I guess the answer is that I don't have any Hercules monitor anymore, and the C128 ouputs a monochrome composite signal on that pin. I didn't want to create such a signal, but if it's just a matter of routing the digital signal to pin 7, I can do it of course. > > PS: For those who wonder: I also finished building the DIY > > GALblast programmer and it seems to work. > > Is this a selfbuild project including software (and maybe even sources)?

Yes, the project's homepage is at http://www.geocities.com/researchtriangle/forum/8070/galblast.htm I don't know if the address is still valid, but Google should find it for you then. I have a local copy if that fails. > > but all the 16V8's I had lying around had no PES in them, > > PES ??? I know you can protect GALs so you cannot read theit programming > structure. But PES doesn't sound a bell. The programmer electronic signature. It contains info on how to program the GAL, including the programming voltage. Without it, I'd have to guess all those parameters. Normally it is still readable when the GAL is protected, but it can be erased on purpose as well. > > I will not try to read the GAL of the C128-Z80 > > accelerator with it. > > A project I missed ??? It's not exactly a project. I posted a while ago that I got a Rossmöller 8MHz Z80 accellerator module for the C128, and it uses a GAL for the clock circuit. Of course I'd like to reverse engineer that thing. Nicolas Message was sent through the cbm-hackers mailing list
