The ABBUC hardware contest has concluded last saturday. And the Mega-Speedy ended at a 2nd place.
Not bad, considering the diminishing use of the 1050. There's quite a number of alternatives.
The Mega Speedy may be produced. This depends on the amount of people willing to buy it.
Discription can be found in this forum.
And of course, all information will be made available, just as it was with the Freezer project.
To start with, a working copy of the schematic diagram.
The Mega Speedy will be able to replace most disk drive upgrades that were ever made for the 1050.
Price will depend on the number of units that will be produced.
For sure it will be below $100.
More accuratelly, a preliminary calculation based on 50 units comes out below $65. (Excluding shipment of course)
The pictures show the device. One unit consist of a main PCB and a display/selection part.
Depending on the suppliers and the demand, first units will be available before the end of this year.
Please inform me of your interest.
And of course, questions are welcome as well.
