fullspec version should be coming soon! With any luck, should be able to start shipping some out early/mid September.What's the plan with the fullspec version? I'm dreaming of a Linux scsi host driver, since I also have Akai samplers that use SCSI, these samplers have Mac and pc based software (MESA) for gui sample editing, I currently have to maintain an old PC for this, which i'd happily replace with a Linux based system or an emulated Mac.
It would have to be a super low-profile cable. There really isn't much space there.I suppose I could just put a 90° pin header on the pi zero.
Not a dumb question, and I don't blame you for not combing through the entire thread! Its getting pretty long!Dumb question: Can the Raspberry Pi not be powered from the SCSI bus? Forgive me for not combing through the thread to find the answer
Hi Somique! I should have some to sell in 3-4 weeks. Stay tunedHi landoGriffin,
I've been reading about your work today and that is very impressive. I was wondering if there is plan to sell the set (PCB+Components) or if you guys recommend a provider.
I've got a Macintosh SE and RaSCSI sounds very promising.
So, couldn't you just use the 5V pin on the GPIO header of the Raspi to power it? That's what I do with most of my Raspis.Different topic..... If you assemble this thing the way I'm envisioning, you won't be able to access the power connector with a Pi Zero. So, I'm thinking of adding a micro USB port so that you can still power the unit.
I also guess termination power isn't enough to power a raspi even in some underclocked low power mode? Because if it was enough, you could just power it like that without any extra USB thingies. I'd also vote for a USB-C connector if you go the USB route, since those will be more plentiful soon. Micro-USB will be the rare thing you never find a working cable for just like the Mini-USB is now.Yup. You definitely could. But, I like a micro USB connector better
Unfortunately I already ordered a bunch of Micro USB connectors. :/I'd also vote for a USB-C connector if you go the USB route, since those will be more plentiful soon
It could also operate from a small battery and go into some sleep mode whenever it's out of termination power and could have some "ready" led when it's booted and running. Therefore, it'd sense the termpwr as a wakeup signal and be ready in a fraction of a second while the Mac is still doing its POST. The battery could also balance the power consumption so it can rely on something that termpwr on average can provide.I think it would be possible for terminator power. However, as mentioned before, the Raspberry Pi needs to be up first before the Mac.
Powering the Raspberry Pi using the terminator power would be possible if the Mac has a lot of RAM, and thus takes a while doing the RAM check, giving time for the Raspberry Pi to start up.
