After collecting all the components needed for the Atari board it was finally time to solder them. But what are the chances that the project would work on first attempt? In my case it didn't and I will describe here my process of troubleshooting.
This blog post takes a closer look at the Macintosh Plus and show how to create a System Boot floppy disk. Besides that it also shows how to get some software to run on this computer.
In this blog post I will be taking a closer look at the WIO Terminal and making a small game using ArduPy which is a combination of Arduino and MicroPython.
This is the micro:bit. It is a pocket sized computer system with motion detection, a built-in compass and Bluetooth technology that can be used to learn programming and electronics.
This is a CNC 3018 Pro router. It can be bought for around 150 euros from various online resellers. It comes unassembled. In this tutorial I will first do the unboxing and then share with you my challenges during the assembly of this CNC router.
What you see here is a Commodore 64 cartridge that I have created by sticking an EPROM and some other components on a breadboard.
A while back I also made a prototype for C64 PLA chip replacement, but I never did any further tests and completed the project. I thought that it was time to do some more tests on the chip. But will it pass the tests? Let's find out...
This is a Magnetic print bed that can be installed on a 3D printer for better adhesion and also so your finished prints can be easily removed. A while back I installed a similar print bed on my main 3D printer, but did not document it apart from some posts on Twitter. In this post I will cover the installation in more detail.
The 4164 DRAM memory chips can be found inside old 8-bit computers like Atari 800XL and Commodore 64. In this blog I will try to explain how they work by going through the datasheet and then building a breadboard with an Arduino to look at the operation in more detail. You can also watch this on youtube.
In my previous blog, I have written a bit about the remake of the PCB board for Atari 800XL computer. Now I will describe the process of acquiring all the parts needed to build it.
