I ordered one of these: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/271226739840? ... EBIDX%3AIT

I ordered one of those specifically because it looks like the pin layout is in the same form factor and the pins are exposed. I just unpacked it however and realised that not all the pins are exposed after all so I will have to cut a small amount of the metal away with my cutters. Shouldn't be a problem.

I'm going to solder it on in a bit so i can confirm for sure if it's what you want or not a bit later tonight.

Update: Just a word of warning - that SD Card socket may not be the right one. I've soldered it on, fine as far as I know and my DE-1 will not power up with the expansion board connected now. It's late so I'll have to investigate tomorrow to see whats up.

Incidentally, if you only want 1 or 2 expansion boards, I have a couple to sell. Please see my other thread.

Martin, I saw on amibay that initially you only wanted EU buyers for the DE1 adapter PCB; thus, since I am in USA, I had 3 of the blank DE1_adapter PCBs fabricated.

Just for the noobs out there like me, can we have a step by step guide to programming the de1 with the .pof and .sof files.

Thanks in advance

Frank

Frank - I have a couple left that don't have the connectors or the 2.7K resistors. They would still need to be added, you can't use it without. I guess I could get some more parts in by now. The resistors went out of stock where I was buying them and I was only buying the connectors for the ones I actually needed.

Where are you based so I have an idea what postage is likely to be? I lost money on the last two I sent to Germany for example because someone else took them to the post office for me and they got charged for a small parcel when it should have been a letter (they were bare boards). I want to make sure I don't make the same mistake again. UK is easy though.

PS: Programming the thing is fully covered by the guides, manuals and tutorials supplied with the DE-1. It's kind of assumed that if you have an FPGA development board that it's a given you know how to program it. If you just want a re-configurable retro computer then maybe the MiniMig or Replay boards might be better?

Martin I'm based in the uk, I bought my de-1 quite cheaply and interested in sinclair and the bbc configuration
How much for a pcb plus postage. Can I pay via paypal ?

Do you need it fully built? If so I'll have to get some more of the 2.7k resistors in.

Postage in the UK wasn't much. A pound odd, but I forget exactly. And yep, PP is fine as long as it's gift so I don't have to lost the charges.
