KTRL CD32+ (new version of the KTRL CD32 gamepad)



I have just finished designing and implementing a new version of my KTRL CD32 gamepad. It has all the features of the original KTRL CD32 plus:
  • Amiga/gamepad output to output conflict fixed. Due to the implementation of the original CD32 gamepad (and my previous KTRL CD32 gamepad), pin 6 (fire1) will have a output to output conflict every time the buttons are read by the Amiga. The Amiga sets this pin as an output and pulls it LOW while the gamepad will output a HIGH signal. This conflict is very short (a few microseconds), but causes ringing or erroneus signals and can result in unreliable gamepad functionality. The KTRL CD32+ will not cause this conflict and might be more reliable on some problematic Amigas (mainly A1200 machines).
  • Fully compatible with the Commodore 64. The original CD32 gamepad (and my previous KTRL CD32 gamepad) has pull-up resistors on some pins which will result in some keys not working on the C64 while the gamepad is plugged in. These pull-up resistors are required for reliable CD32 gamepad functionality. On the KTRL CD32+, you can easily disable these pull-up resistors (alternative two-button mode), resulting in full C64 compatibility. With an optional two-button adapter, you will even get two button functionality in some C64 games.
  • Can store default settings. The KTRL CD32+ has a default preset, as well as the four other presets, that will be loaded at start-up if it has been stored.
  • Uses less components and has better positioning of LED pins and right shoulder button pins -> faster assembly time.
  • Printed instructions with cheat sheet. Optional laminated stickers for the button symbols and DPAD.
I will sell kits (possibly also PCBs with presoldered SMD components) on Amibay and a VERY limited amount of assembled gamepads. These include the gamepad, box, printed instructions and the optional laminated stickers (stickers require cutting).

EDIT: The Amibay thread is here: http://www.amibay.com/showthread.php...ther-computers)

I’m interested in an assembled game pad. Want to make sure Metro Siege works well with this controller!

Interested in one fully assembled kit.
I have the old version, but this new one sounds cool.

I‘m also interested in a fully assembled Kit. How much for postage to Germany?
Maybe I can show it on Amiga34 if I receive it in time.

Oh no, not another thread where 10 million people say "Interested in..."

Remember that this is a "News" thread guys and therefore broadcast across the whole abime.net.

Please keep it for updates to the product from MickGyver / comments related to these updates.

If you are "Interested in..." then send him a PM where he can keep track of these requests.

Yes, please PM me for requests. I will assemble only a very limited amount, I will create a sales thread over at Amibay as soon as I have the time (I'm currently on a short trip). I will PM the ones who has declared interest thus far!
