Check out the new light detector experiment that I just posted on the SUPERPROTO wiki. http://willegal.net/superproto/index.php?title=Photo_Detector It actually took me about 3 times longer to write up this new wiki page, as it took me to try this experiment out. The SUPERPROTO is really going to make experimenting on the Apple II a snap.
Thanks to Ken Gagne, I managed to sell a number of SUPERPROTOs at K’Fest. I also sold another to a person I know well. I expect to get some feedback with the next couple weeks, as well as get the few that did not sell at K’Fest returned to me. Assuming the feedback doesn’t reveal anything serious wrong with the design, I’ll be opening up general sales in about 2 weeks.
Regular price is still to be set, but will not be lower than the special K’Fest introductory price of $60. I know that this is quite a bit for a “proto” board, but the PCB and chip costs dictate price, and there is little I can do about it. However I will offer bare boards at approximately half the kit price, for those that can supply their own 75LS245, GAL, VIA and EEPROM, or don’t need them for their application. I’ll also consider quantity deals for folks that want a batch of bare boards to use as the basis for a limited production project. Drop me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have interest in a quantity deal.
