Yes, with 95% certainty due to those vents at the right front area. I'll save the ebay pics and add them to the wiki once it's working again properly.


Collector of QL related computers, accessories and software even though I don't really understand how they work!
Original QL's: many (plus quite a bit of other old stuff and 170+ original software titles)
Custom XT cased QL system with Gold Card, Qimi mouse, Hermes and MFM HDD
QXLII card installed in a PC
Q40 and Q68 also present

Ask me about near NOS re-felted good quality Microdrive Carts - many available.

Saw this on eBay...I see the 68008, the MC1377 encoder, and maybe the power regulator ic...what are the others or is this seller just jumbling together a bunch of unrelated components.

He lists an 8049 and a GAL but I don't recognise most of those as being QL related, or even QL expansion related.

And god only knows what code is in that 8049 - probably not QL IPC code for sure ! I am guessing you have to design your own ULA's from the programmable logic chips - the GAL to replace the HAL, and you get a 68901 for your trouble - that's actually a nice ic - but not easy to work into the QL's system - although SMSQ/E has some support for this chip. And a dual port RAM chip too - but that looks like it's lived in a bag of surplus components for a long time ;-)

I contacted the seller about 2 month ago and asked him if he can also provide a schematics.
Well, surprise, he cannot. His reply was something like this "A very knowledgeable expert created the kits and he is just selling them" Go figure :D
