Sign me up for one then!

Hi admiral,
I have a couple but they're reserved awaiting payment from two people. I have the connectors for building a few more on order so once they arrive (and I find the time), I'll build a few more. It's likely a few weeks, but I can send you a PM when they're ready if you like?

I have a somehow related technical question.
I have acquired recently an A500 double Zorro ports extender from Pacific Peripheral (Subsystem 500).

http://amiga.resource.cx/search.pl?p...&base=dec&pid=

Here is my question. There should be a power supply but I don’t have it. When I open the case I see the power is only 2 wires out of the DIN connector so I’m wondering if it supplies 12V or 5V to the board connected to the 2x Zorro slots...

It powers also a kind of external floppy drive connected to the A500 by an ordinary DB23 floppy cable...

Thanks.

Hmmm, I would suspect 5V as that's generally what Zorro cards use as their primary power, but I'm not familiar with the device so I can't be sure. If you examine the PCB, you should be able to work it out though: Counting from the rear of the card/machine, the first two positions (on both sides) in the Zorro slot are ground, the third (on both sides) is 5V. 12V is around 5 positions from the back, and only on one side). So if you trace your power connections, you should be able to figure out what the PSU should provide.

A500 Zorro Slot Adaptor

Hi Daedalus. Thank you very much for your reply. That’ll do. I’ll keep you informed of my findings.

Edit: yep, got continuity on pin 3 so definitely 5V. Thanks.

Thanks Well, the concept isn't really new, there's not a whole lot to it since the A500 expansion slot is more or less already a Zorro-II slot, and there have been numerous other Zorro-II slot adaptors for the A500 over the years.

I don't have much in the way of Youtube videos, but there's this one, which is a frankly ridiculous test during development...
