OpenRomSwitcher is an Open Hardware adapter PCB that allows the use of a 27xxx EPROM in place of a smaller (E)PROM. This is useful, for instance, for replacing the KERNAL and other ROMs in Commodore 16 home computers.
When installing JiffyDOS on a Commodore 16 or Plus/4, you might want to retain the ability of switching to the original KERNAL ROM. The C16 ROM pinout is the same as a 27128 EPROM, so you can use a 27256 and put both the JiffyDOS and the original KERNAL on it. To switch between them, you will need to either connect the A14 pin to VCC or GND.
OpenRomSwitcher comes as an adapter PCB that sits inbetween the original socket and the new chip and carries the A13-A15 pins out to solder pads where switches can be wired to allow the selection of a particular ROM.
OpenRomSwitcher is Open Hardware. If you make any modifications to the board, please contribute them back.

|Shipping Rate||Tracked||Ships From||First Item||Additional Items|
Items will ship worldwide from Italy. Two methods are available for international orders:
PostaPriority Internazionale: This service has a sort of best-effort tracking system. It is the cheapest method and, depending on where you live, you might get some tracking information or not. If you choose this method, the shipment will be entirely at your risk, if the parcel gets lost you will get NO REFUND. This being said, in almost 2 years only a single parcel was lost.
Raccomandata Internazionale: Also known as "Tracked & signed for". It is more expensive but fully trackable and refundable. The shipping cost of a single kit is 10€ to Europe, 11.50€ to the US and 12.50€ to Africa, Asia and Australia.
Note that usually I only have time to prepare parcels in the weekends, so I usually only ship on Mondays.
