  1. Has the waiting list already been published?
  2. And in Bavaria too 🙂
  3. https://www.mouser.com/Vishay/Passive-Components/Capacitors/Ceramic-Capacitors/MLCCs-Multilayer-Ceramic-Capacitors/Multilayer-Ceramic-Capacitors-MLCC-Leaded/_/N-bkrdjZ1yzvvqx?P=1z0wqusZ1z0z819Z1z0zls5
  4. What were the main benefits of a 1090XL design BITD? In my opinion Atari addresses the following: 1) Get more slots (PBI exposed slots) 2) Buffering the signals 3) do already address decoding for the needed PBI ID 4) additional common power supply 5) maybe more I don`t know The points 2 to 4 for sure aimed to make expansion card design cheaper and easier BITD. By todays technology that is maybe not so importnat anymore. My hope would be that a 1090 could be an enabler to produce more PBI expansion cards which can co-exist and the entry barrier for hobbyists which are not perfect in electronics were lower. In the end it`s a hobby and there is no good reason for doing things than "It´s fun and joy".
  5. I hope the board layout on PCBWay has the issues ironed out he had while assembling: https://ezcontents.org/atari-800xl-pcb-soldering-and-troubleshooting
  6. The 800xl pcb clone is made available https://www.pcbway.com/project/shareproject/Atari_800XL_PCB_remake_v1_1.html
  7. The Number Cruncher is a copied version with all the bugs ironed out http://www.asic.cc/NumberCruncher.html who knows whether that design could be adapted for the Atari?
  8. https://www.collinsdictionary.com/dictionary/english/hundreds According to the Collins dictionary you are not quite right. 1. a large but unspecified number, amount, or quantity
  9. Are the schematics of the Bit3 card already available somewhere? is the ROM protected? I am asking as you said it needs to be reverse-engineered.
  10. I can test with another 48K board. I have to look through my stuff if I have 16K board without case. Do I have to disconnect any wire if I want to try the 48K board?
