A4000 Rev B Replica Prototype Boards

I just wanted to show off a clear set of images of the new boards. They came out fantastic! As you all read this I have a set of boards being sent off to a couple select people that will be building them along with me to test them. I can say that I expect them to work great. This weekend I have spent a lot of time testing traces against a real board and the online PCB explorer site. So far I haven’t found any mistakes. I expect good news very soon!

A4000 Replica (Based on the Rev B)

This is it! This first views of the now completed A4000 Rev B layout! I’m going over it and will soon ask for feedback on this. Please remember this is in Mentor Graphics PADS and requires the viewer from them if you want to see it yourself. It’s free from them. This is amazing work! The pcb database file is located in the layout folder at the Github here: https://github.com/Acill/A4000RevB

Capture

I’ve put a lot of time into this and want to thank everyone that donated to make it possible. Very soon now the data to allow new boards to be manufactured will be posted on the Github as well. For those that have access to the full version of Mentor Graphics PADS you could take the info in the Github currently and export it to Gerbers, but I ask that you wait for the final versions to be announced after it’s verified completely. These are the completed project files though now unless errors are discovered.

The KTRL CD32 Gamepad

A great product offered for sale by the EAB user MickGyver is offering CD32 gamepads for sale. He offers them in Kit form for those of us that can assemble ourselves and ready-made if you are okay with a wait and bit of an expected premium for the service. They come with everything you need for a complete pad. Its a bit of a challenge if you are not good and SMD soldering, but the results are well worth it! I have built two of them and highly recommend them! Check out his for sale thread here for more information.
