Amiga PCB Explorer
« on: 23:18, 15 April 19 »
Yesterday I've repaired an Amiga 500 Plus.
Traces were bad etc, etc from battery leakage.


Anyway this tool was the key to success.

We need one for our CPCs.

That looks really nice!


I think we have lots of good PCB scans, maybe we could ask them how to create a site like that.

If I had a naked pcb I would be able to replicate it, but not on a web page.

You may be able to use the PCB pictures of the service manuals for that.

I saw the pictures... they are x-ray or something and the traces are mixed with the bottom layer  :picard:

But you can compare to the actual scans of the boards referenced on the service manual.

Wow that's nice. I wonder what platform they did it with... looks like too much work though, sadly :(

I can do it, I need a proper scan from the PCB unpopulated.

Did you play with the site? I guess you did, of course... but there's so much more than just a layout in it!

Yes, I know what you mean.
I will do it in my own way to trace the traces, I can't reach his level of greatness  ;D

I’ll ask @Cpcmaniaco in case he has a bare board that he can scan for us.
