DESCRIPTION

This is the hardware part that accompanies the project of Magic Desk Cartridge Generator - https://bitbucket.org/zzarko/magic-desk-cartridge-generator/


The PCB was designed to accomodate various types of EPROMs and their FLASH variants. The smallest EPROM you can use is 27C010 (128Kb), and the largest is 27C040 (512 Kb). There is an option to expand the board to a full 1Mb, by using two 27C040 or 29F040 ICs


The PCB is designed so it can be used in various types of cartridge cases. It has been designed to fit the original Commodore cases and cases from the Polish companies KRADEX / MASZCZYK which are available at some retailers in Europe. It also fits in a 3D-prited case from the model available at Thingiverse. Unfortunately, we don't have all of the cartridge cases available in the market, so the design is NOT tested to fit with: Individual Computers' and Shareware Plus' (and all other currently available) cases. Please note - the cartridge cases from KRADEX / MASZCZYK are "low profile", and you cannot use a socket for the EPROM with this type of cases!
