The MegaFlash
« on: 19:04, 05 August 11 »
Hi all,
     after many months of development the MegaFlash is finally here. The PCBs arrived this morning and I've just built and tested the first one, which you can see below. All tests went well. It's sitting on a Maxell CF2 3" Disk in the second picture so that you can estimate its approximate size. Also many many thanks to TFM for developing the software required to program it.

I will start building the others at the weekend. I still have some additional PCBs, so anyone who hasn't ordered one yet, there's still a chance to get one, just send me a PM.

Bryce.

No, but I can bugger off early from work if there's something important I want to do at home :D

As you can see in the pictures, I added text in the copper for "R = Read" and "W = Write" and also "0" and "7" so that you don't need to check the documentation to know what settings are set on the device.

You mean it's not blurred like the first one :D

Btw, for all "collectors" out there, yes, that really is an original "still sealed" CF2 :) I have 5 of them, that I don't intend ever opening (just wanted to make you jealous) :D

The reason he can work this quickly is: he clearly is not human.

Watch what happens, everytime bryce returns from work:

Obviously this is no original footing. For one he's the male counterpart, but I guess you'll get the idea. ;)

Hmmm, that's a pity, I was looking forward to having a good fondle of those pert baps after a hard days work :D
