Where can I get Freddie chips in Europe

Recommended Posts

I have an 800XLF and a 65XE and they both need a replacement Freddie chip. Number: C061922 or C061991

Does anyone know a good place to order them from in the UK / EU?

cheers

Hi Zulagala,

 

it does indeed require the SRAM module, sorry, missed that.

 

xrbrevin If you can't find someone who can sell you the chips, the link from Dinadan67 is a way forward, although you'll probably end up paying import and postage charges here in the UK.

 

Regards

Many thanks, altho the cost is a little steep..

Ill search around to see if the gerbers and code for it are in the public domain

You can get Freddie-replacements from a shop in Poland: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/124704063542?hash=item1d08f10036:g:0yUAAOSwLjxgjGF9

Yup, I too got mine from this seller (https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/124704063542)  - same seller Galp30. Good service.:)  Was near £30 all in by the time postage cost from Poland to UK was factored in.

Thanks @Fred_M - hopefully it wont be required but a plan-B is always good to have

Do you have a spare spacebar for an XE tho?

Only for the single mylar keyboard which uses springs.

i just got the remaining components this afternoon and fitted them - i can confirm it is a success!

the XE has been cycling the karateka demo for over an hour now

to finish, i will have to remove the socket in order to refit the shielding but i will leave it in for now to test the remaining 4x Freddie PCBs. (Those 0402 components make my eyes hurt..!)

 

thanks again for all your help 😄

if anyone would like to make their own, here are the gerbers, BOM and placement info: (saves you the hassle of google translate etc!)

It's time to populate the empty bank, it's cheap, it's easy... it's the way it was designed and meant to be. Happy Atari, Happy you!
