Is it possible to power 2 standard QLs with a single PSU if...

... if both QLs are equipped with Teroid switching regulator ? Would the better efficiency of the switching regulator be enough to reduce power consumption by half ? These PSU are difficult to come by so using a single one for two QLs would be nice. What if one of these QLs has a GoldCard ? (My unde...

It does. When I apply 3.3V to the QLnet pin, the value becomes 57.

Let's wait for the BAT43.

Can you tell me what type of socket you are using?


Sorry, these sockets were bought at a local electronic shop, so I have no number or spec sheet.

Re: Q68 netwrok port hardware

What you could do, is to remove your circuit and just apply GND or 3.3V to the QLNET line. Then check if you see bit 0 of PC.MCTRL (at $18020) change accordingly. Make sure no network driver is loaded, so the Q68 does not attempt to drive the line high while you apply GND! Hi Peter, is PC.MCTRL a b...

Re: Q68 netwrok port hardware

Hm, my money so far is on the socket. But hard to tell as I couldn't find your model anywhere. All similar looking ones had one contact come out on the top, which doesn't seem to be the case with yours. Cheers, Marcel These sockets were very easy to figure out as the bottom is open so you can see w...

Are the connections to the Network sockets correct?


I checked them when I built the interface, but I will check again. I will order a few BAT43.

Re: Q68 netwrok port hardware

Your VCC, GND and QLNET pins on the connector are correct. Sorry if I ask something too obvious, but are you aware the Q68 network driver is not part of SMSQ/E and needs to be loaded separately? http://www.dilwyn.me.uk/q68/ndq68_v305.zip I agree this is the first thing to check! Yes the driver was ...
