Re: Issue Tx boards discussions

Could the 8302 and 8301 be replaced by a FPGA or CPLD? Yes, but not directly as a chip in DIL case. You'd need a chip in a totally different case, voltage regulator(s), and in case of an FPGA, voltage level conversion for the inputs. This could be placed on a PCB which plugs into a ZX8301 / ZX8302 ...

Re: "New" SD interface

Oooh, I see this has 5v jumper for aurora use? And both memory card slots work at the same time? Yes, you can use this interface with Aurora. And both memory card slots work at the same time.

Re: Issue Tx boards discussions

Hi,

I do not loke to use Microdrives, I use QL-SD and vDriveQL.

Could the vDriveQL be fitted into the QL case?

I did consider fitting it into an issue 5 board, but it needed too much component change to loe profile or SMD.
