Title: Multiface 2 boards
Post by: Pedro José Rodríguez on 09:26, 08 January 18
I have recently contacted the creator of the Multiface 2 board (MX4 compatible). He has told me that he would produce a new batch if there were enough people interested. Anyone?

I would be interested in one if there is a way of using it on a standard 464 ( IDC =>Edge Connector ) - I don't have a Board yet and it will be a while before i get one TBH

talreks board was that price when I bought one a few months ago. I can't recommend one enough. Great device.

Good news, since we are around 7 people interested Bertrand has agreed to make a new batch. He is going to order the pcb and the parts and he says that the board will be in the range 30-40 euros.
Please contact him.

Hi everybody, i'm here  :D
No need to send me emails, i also answer to private messages  :laugh:

i was not aware people were still looking for this piece of hardware, i thought everyone had one  :o

I'm going to order parts, so i think, it will be 30€ if parts are not more expensive than a year ago.
But i'm concerned about edge and Centronics connectors.

I'll try to keep the same price : 30€ for the board, and extra € for the cable you'll use.
i'll do it this evening, so please be patient. Also, orders take 1 month... try to be patient twice  :laugh:

We've had a significant amount of new members since your last batch. Sure, I got mine from you only about six months ago or so.  ;)
So it's always good to keep yourself available every few months for a batch.  :D

The 10 boards have their future owners, but if anyone changes his mind, you'll be the next.
If there is enough persons interrested for 10 other boards i'll do it.


Price will be the same : 30€ (the MF2 with MotherX4 connector) and 6€ for extra cable (Edge or Centronics)

Sorry about the silly question, but do I need a MotherX4 to use the MF2-clone or will it work without it when using a proper cable?


I'm not up to date about the latest hardware for the CPC and I have no single clue what the MX4 is for nor what the expansions for it do.


Either way, I would be interested in an MF2-clone.

Title: Re: Multiface 2 boards
Post by: pelrun on 12:32, 24 June 18
The MotherX4 is just a passive bus expander; there's no difference between plugging a board into it and plugging it directly into the expansion port (except for the diode drop on the 5v line.)


No board requires it, unless you want to run more than one board simultaneously.
Title: Re: Multiface 2 boards
Post by: SpaceRat on 14:53, 24 June 18
Can one still buy the Mother X4 board somewhere?
Or at least parts to make an own one ...

Unlike others, I don't think ToTo has shared any gerbers of his boards.
But there are plenty of Mother X4 alternatives available these days.

I have never stopped to send MotherX4 assembled or KIT to peoples asking for it.
