Sideport SAMS?

Recommended Posts

Will the design be public like TIPI+32K from jedimatt42 or is it only available through the store of arcadeshopper?
Only available in my store

From a business perspective, sharing the design is not a move I'd personally make, especially after having spent personal funds to commission the design and construction.

It's also a pretty smart move (at least from my standpoint), as there are quite a few TIPI's out there, many people may be interested in upgrading as newer and greater programs become available requiring that extra memory.   Sharing the design at this point in time, would be like slitting your own throat, at least when it comes to recouping ones loss.

I don't really consider it a loss it's more of an investment in the TI community.. but definitely there's some expenses that would be nice to be recouped however I don't make a lot of money on any of the hardware I sell. If I really look at it I operate at a loss no matter how many sell. Yet I keep investing in new hardware purchasing lots of old stuff etc hopefully keeping the community moving forward.. having a SAMS sidecar setup has been a desire of mine for about 2 years now.. finally becoming a reality.

I have no problem with paying for high quality work and creative endeavor.

 

One thing the TI community taught me a long time ago was respecting the value of creative talent and producers. I saw first-hand what software piracy did to the community.

Don't get me wrong.

It was not my intention to produce and sell SAMS boards.

 

I'm only interested to make the boards myself for me and a few other people as i did with TIPI&32K.

I don't want to make profit !!

 

I bought a lot of stuff at arcadeshopper in the past.

But buying in the US is sometimes expensive for people from europe because of shipping and taxes.

Its much cheaper to build stuff for yourself with good instructions like TIPI.

TIPI & RAMpack32K parts you can order everywhere at one place for SAMS you cant. If you count cost of parts from your local distributors and you will find genuine MAPPER chip in total with shippings, customs and other costs you will be close to arcadeshopper webshop price anyway :)

Mine has arrived already 🙂. It's amazing how small it is.

Mine arrived today, has tested it, but I can´t get the computer to start if I have the speech synth attached. All I get is a screaming sound and black flickering screen.

Without the speech, all starts up and the Sams works fine.

Someone else who experience the same problem?

do you have an external power supply plugged in? there's no 5v if the speech is plugged in

 

Greg

Yes, the same as my 32k used.

I hate to ask but since you didn't specify.. is the power set to EXT on the board?

 

🙈 Eehh, a classic mistake... Thanks for the reminder! 😁👍

Man, I can't believe these boards are going out so quick after we learned the design was good to go.  Miracles of modern manufacturing (and community dedication and innovation).

So will all the boards from the initial batch (the first ten, I believe it was) be going out in the short term? 

Admission: I have no reasonable justification for my insatiable eagerness to get my greedy little hands on this product - I have plenty of existing projects to keep me busy regardless.  Still, I can't wait.

The eu orders were shipped locally so they got theirs first for once :)

the rest are coming to me next week hopefully then they will go out and people will get tracking numbers when they actually ship
