Re: QLUB Adapter - Initial Release...

Ciao Danielle! Thank you Martyn, the adapter started working well after I uploaded this version of the firmware! That's great - thanks for persevering and sharing! There was a change in the Teensyduino library which might be the cause of the different timings, I sent you a PM with the details. Yes, ...

Re: QLUB Adapter - Initial Release...

Hi again everyone! For those of you preparing to build the QLUB Adapter, a heads-up :-) After some troubleshooting Danielle's build, we discovered that the timing of the network packets sent by the microcontroller was all screwed. We eliminated a number of possible causes - his hardware build was fi...

Re: QLUB Adapter - Initial Release...

Hi Chr$! What equivalent PNP bi-polar high-speed switching transistor is suitable instead of a ZTX-510? I'm a noob looking at datasheets and none of the PNP transistors I can find are quite the same. ZTX-510 seems to be a tricky one to find. I typically use an online resource such as the following t...

Re: QLUB Adapter - Initial Release...

Ok I have ordered the bits to build the hardware, lets see how this goes! Good luck! As more of our friends here build and try out the device, I intend to capture any feedback I receive and document it ready for others to follow :-) I understand that Danielle T has already built the adapter and beg...

Re: QLUB Adapter - Initial Release...

Hi! I have vanpeebles bugging me to support this in sQLux, is there a guide of what needs done? Yes, he's a bit like that, isn't he :-) I don't have sufficient experience with uQLx - nor sQLux - having last played with uQLx several versions since, but the following two points will need to be address...

Re: QLUB Adapter - Initial Release...

EDITED 17:50 GMT: ... some adjustments that may be necessary to the QLUB firmware as published (v2.1e) relates to the bit-timings, which I modified very slightly to suit the ZX Interface-1 in my later testing. To revert to default QL bit-timings, you could make the following changes to the firmware ...

Re: QLUB Adapter - Initial Release...

Ciao Danielle! It's great to hear that you've started the journey! I'd be very happy to use your setup and trouble-shoot together, if you like? Attached is my own 32-bit bit-wise toolkit - might be worth trying that in place of your own as a first easy step, in case I'm relying on (a quirk in) my ow...

Re: QLUB Adapter - Initial Release...

Hi Tim! Well they say a journey begins with the first step - so I have downloaded the files - thanks for sharing I will begin to gather the needed bits into a the queue of boxes of projects I have, this may however jump that Queue... Good luck! Whilst the instructions may look daunting at first, in ...
