  1. I have an update, I was able to score an ATR-8000 that appears to include the 8088 addon, I will be receiving it shortly, this will help with reproducing the ATR-8000 and now maybe the 8088 add-on also. I plan to use this to confirm my schematic and then I will send out for the first board run! Mike

    WTB: TI PEB Cards

    Are you considering the TIPI Peb card? I am getting one...
  3. Unfortunately Artlover hasnt been on for a while....
  4. Hey Many thanks to pixelpedant for letting me know about this gathering, would it be ok if I join you guys!? Thanks, Mike
  5. woohoo!!!! I will post to that thread and ask if I can attend! THANKS!!
  6. Would people be interested in having a video conference gathering of fellow TI users to talk, help each other, work on projects etc!? Does anyone already do something like this in discord or? I would be interested in doing something like this! Thoughts? Mike
  7. If both are available Del and I could workout a full buy of both from you as one pickup. Mike
  8. Anyone have any 8" floppy drives they would sell? Thanks, Mike
  9. Software Publishers Inc is what they were called when they first made the ATR8000, they later changed their name to SWP Microcomputer Products, Inc. see page 4 in http://vtda.org/docs/computing/SWP/ATR8000_CP-M_Supplement.pdf Mike
  10. Thanks Larry!! I’ve reached out to Charles, here’s hoping he responds and has some help tracking this down. Mike
  11. So here are my thoughts on this, if there are no copyright issues I plan to make the first batch of these reproducing the circuity as it originally was, once I get those working and then I can make changes going forward. As I said I’m not against making sensible changes but I also don’t want to deal with multiple unknowns since I don’t have a real ATR8000 to compare against. The reduction is size is really to keep the price of the pcb’s down. Should I keep the edge connectors for serial and parallel or change to DB25’s ? Mike
  12. Larry does bring up a good issue, what about copyrights?? Does anyone know what happened to SWP Microcomputer Products?? Who ended up with the properties? Anyone know? I'd like to get permission to reproduce this for us hobbyiest. Mike
  13. As I said in my first post I do plan to reduce the size of the pcb but I am planning to reproduce it exactly, so all its flaws will be reproduced. All the parts that make up the ATR8000 are still available, not to mass produce it no, but to make a number of them yes. Please keep in mind, I want to reproduce it because they are hard to find and I’ve wanted to use one again as I did so many years ago. I’m not looking at this as a project to flood the market with a ton of these in a new form but instead to reproduce a few. A labor of love....
