Although I have proved the SCART-Genie to work on a couple of other Geneve computers I am waiting for a new shipment of tooled PCB's from a different manufacturer.  I want to make sure they turn out right before I put up the pre-order.

 

If so then it will save a bit of money on each PCB.  They will not be purple and I decided to make the boards rectangle with evenly spaced holes as to make it easier to make a case for them.

 

I am due to go out of town on Sunday.  I'm hoping they will ship and I will have them in hand by Saturday, but doubtful.  If not I will not be able to test until I get back the following weekend.

I received a shipping update that my other test run of PCB boards should arrive Friday. So if all goes well I can slap one together Friday evening.

I got the boards in from this last test run with a different vendor.

 

Only one small issue.  When I generated the gerber file I did notmake sure the mounting holes from the SCART connector were set to dimension so they would be cut out.  They actually just showed up as silkscreens.

 

Not really a big deal.  I did make sure there was no traces on either side before I ordered just in case I had to whittle down a bit.

 

I may just leave it like this and just predrill them.  I did have a couple of SCART connectors that even though they were the same manufacture the clips were off a bit anyway.  Check the pics out..

 

I have tested and fully functional..  They are not purple but they work.

I put together a SCART-Genie AVPC today.  I have not tested yet besides all continuity test on the board pass, now that I jumped 2 traces, dislexia must hit me during that design.  I reversed 2 pins the RCA audio input (there were only 2, i mapped the tip from the RCA to the ground and then the sleeve (ground) to the audio trim pot.  That won't work!  So i cut two traces and jumpered them to the correct points.  

 

If all goes well I plan on testing over the next few days.  I'm optimistic, but I will need to order a new run of boards when I get it tested with the corrections.  That's why we do Prototypes..

I have an EVPC version one I will need to put together this weekend.  Post pics when I get it together, unless I get motivation to do it next day or so.

I already posted my need for one SNUG EVPC, and Friday is my birthday, so I'm motivated.

I finally pulled out the SNUG system to test the AVPC SCART-Genie.  Well i wired a couple of things wrong.

 

Corrected and decided instead of an RCA jack for audio input I would use another 3.5mm.  On the final board it will line up with the audio output nicely.
