A little something for the Commodore C128 too.

Does CE on the regulators mean China Export? :D

It means I'm self-certifying that the assembled boards meet RoHS requirements.

ooooOOoo

When might we expect to see the Minny and Q-Buck boards available?

As ever, no pressure :-)

The Minnie boards quite quickly.

The Q-Buck boards, I have to test them very, very thoroughly for a while so a little longer.

I guess you know there is much more involved than just RoHS requirements?
It also requires certificates about radio frequencys and safety etc.

Paul,

How come you're so offended by the CE self-certification?

Nasta and I went to a lot of trouble to design and order prototype parts that - if passed - could go immediately on sale. Lead free RoHS-compliant boards and components designed so that, "in a properly designed system" they will meet FCC and CISPR 22 part A (and for the buck regulator, also part B) requirements. They meet all other safety/content requirements, including lead-free HASL (C128 and Minnie boards) or ENIG (Q-Buck) materials.

If you want to take issue with that, maybe you'd like to take it up with us privately?
