Protecting the 8301 ULA Rather than just using 5.6V Zener diodes, adding some fast signal diodes can improve the protection. Use 1N4148 or similar. Connect a diode between 0V/GND and the signal pin, then another diode between the signal pin and the +5V power rail. Do this for all the signals that go...

Re: SD Card Duplication

The Sinclair PC200 does. :P That's a repackaged Amstrad PC, which is an IBM compatible! But I know that you know that I know that you know that! And of course, every IBM compatible of that era (and later of course) has to boot off a bootable drive (unless it's dropping straight into a IBM/M$ BASIC ...

Re: Random obscure survey...

Hmm, am I the odd one out, having a uncased QL board connected to a CF card (mind, a bare keyboard matrix is a pain to use). And an Aurora with an QLSD. Also currently not in a case... (using a PC keyboard).

Re: New video output system

I can kinda understand why an expansion may need the sync signals, but I can't think of any practical and useful reason for making the RGB video signals available on the expansion conne...

Re: New video output system

Does it make use of the existing RGB video output pins of the 8301?
