Hey all, just wanted to gauge community interest to see if anyone would be interested in an ATX to Mac 10-pin adapter board. I've got a IIsi with a dead power supply (surface mount caps got REALLY bad inside) . . .
Right now I've got a batch of prototype boards being made to test out in my IIsi. Once we get that up and running, I'll start offering boards for sale if anyone's interested. Probably going to be sold as PCB only, kit, and fully assembled options.
Sorry if I got too far off topic with the PSU info and suggestions for IIcx and IIsi form factors? You mentioned the IIsi in the IP, so I jumped in with thatinfo.Getting back on-topic here, good news - the Rev1 boards arrived today!
You're fine, I meant more for how this thread became a Mac SE/30 PSU thread for a moment.Sorry if I got too far off topic with the PSU info and suggestions for IIcx and IIsi form factors? You mentioned the IIsi in the IP, so I jumped in with thatinfo.
What you see in the pictures is just me making do with scavenged parts. The final board will have a Mac II plug mounted directly to the board. We were considering using a picoPSU off this board so we could ATX reliability in a tiny package.How would you envision this being used? Specifically where and how would the board and an ATX PSU be mounted, say in a IIci? The board and attendant wires seems too bulky to be practical to me other than for bench testing but I might be missing something.
You mean, "why did two people dare to briefly mention the SE/30 in this thread"? The answer to that is: "because people were talking about the Physical Size of the SEASONIC." Superjer2000, who was one of the people who inspired me to do my own SE/30 PSU mode with the SEASONIC, merely mentioned that he used it in his other mods which included the SE/30, and I followed up with a comment to show just how small it is, which is seen in my video. In other words, we established how small the SEASONIC is -- the size of which is relevant to modding any other PSU. Now that has been established, there need be no further discussion on compact Macs, seeing this thread is indeed about the "Mac IIcx/IIci/IIsi/IIvx/IIvi, Quadra 650/700/800, Performa 600, PM 7100" exclusively.You're fine, I meant more for how this thread became a Mac SE/30 PSU thread for a moment.
