Hello Nicolas, NWaivfrRo> How did you connect the two CIAs? Just a direct connection without any NWaivfrRo> active hardware in there? Since the CNT and SP outputs have open collector NWaivfrRo> drivers, the L to H rise time is extremely slow, typically in the range of NWaivfrRo> one microsecond. Since the switching point is not clearly defined on the NWaivfrRo> voltage scale, it could happen that the CNT transition is detected when the NWaivfrRo> SP signal didn't become stable yet. You can improve this by adding a LS14 NWaivfrRo> Schmitt trigger gate before the inputs of each CIA, and inverting the NWaivfrRo> output with a 7406. Just have a look into the 1571 schematics, it is done NWaivfrRo> exactly this way in them! mmmh... long ago i did the same and i _think_ getting rid of the unstableness was as easy as adding a pullup-resistor. (i dont think i used any inverters or sth that is) -- Best regards, groepaz mailto:email@example.com Message was sent through the cbm-hackers mailing list
