Can't wait to assemble this, and very reasonable price. I'm assembling only the 2nd floppy controller and BIOS section to add a 2nd floppy controller to a system with an existing integrated controller. I feel much better about this than trying to get something commercial off eBay because the design is totally open.
I picked up this card so I could use FTP to transfer files to and from my Tandy 1000 instead of having to use floppy disks. Configuration was easy. I opted to use the dip switches and manually configure the card since I have an XT-IDE card in my Tandy configured on IO address 0x300 which was causing a conflict with the configuration utility. IO address 0x280 and IRQ 2 worked perfectly.
Boards and several pre-programmed chips arrived quickly, well-packed, with a nice note from the creator/seller. Beautiful boards! I am looking forward to build this computer with my son and relive some of my youth years on the way. Documentation on Github is very thorough and clear. Building is promising to be fun. Thanks for creating this project!
I am an electronics technician, so have a bit of an advantage over some people but nevertheless I found the instructions very clear and should be suitable and rewarding for beginners. I normally make a mistake when constructing but this one worked first time!
A Totally Fun Project that brings back the nostalgia of old TTL logic. No microprocessors here! Now tweak the logic to make a switchable 12/24 hour clock. I loved all the parts were preselected at Mouser.com. -Rick-
