There are newly created ones on Dilwyn's site with the note to contact him so he could pass on any corrections. Perhaps that's still possible, I'll check that.

Cheers, Marcel

Hi Marcel,

The schematics on the QL Hompage come from the Yahoo QLHARDWARE group. The schematics were profuced in XCIRCUIT, bur tgere is no data file only a PDF.

I have downloaded all the files, just wondering how to about save all the messages.

There seems to be no contact with author of tge schematics, so I can use them to copy them into KiCAD.

There is no 8301 symbol in KiCAD, so I will create that from the data I have and save to a Github project.


Regards,

Derek

Hi Derek,

that's some detective work, thanks!

I think it would be very cool to have a KiCad QL schematic, but it also sounds like a lot of work! Still, could be cool to route a new board from this, so I really don't want to dissuade you :) But for now I've simply edited the PDF with my change of the data bus, that only took 3 minutes.

Thanks in any case, Marcel
