  1. Ohhh, nice PLD archive… Btw, anyone know these tools? https://github.com/DuPAL-PAL-DUmper
  2. And of course UPS phoned me to confirm I wasn't a shop (because there's a closed metal curtain on the movie theater exit I live just above and I guess they still can't see the door right next to it) and I was here… so the package with the slide-locks from digikey won't show up until Monday :^)
  3. Just checked temperature, without bridging the step-up board to the DA15 I get 42°C and when I add some copper foil it drops down to 37°C, so I think with the proper tape I ordered we should be good.
  4. Great you have enough for your own use but it's always when you want one that you only get expensive finds… At least it gives an alternative to everyone wanting them and making the prices go up.
  5. I did some checks with a medical thermometer, and the step-up board goes off the scale (more than 43°C), although not burning hot, with only 130mA on the Accton MAU… I'll use proper heat-transfer tape instead of kapton around it and then use the copper shield to also bridge it to the DA15 shell to help getting the heat out. And we now have a french user manual…
  6. I couldn't resist making a video for MARCHintosh…
  7. Updated the diagram on github and wrote a user manual: http://revolf.free.fr/AAUI2AUI_manual.pdf
  8. I made a wiring diagram for the kit (and myself, pen and paper is nice but you know…). Making stripes in LibreOffice draw isn't as easy as it seems I'm not sure many would be interested as the MDR connector is quite tiny, and the cable I found tends to have the insulation melt too easily. The first I finished I tried to use lead-free solder but it's really not as easy as regular one…
  9. I think I might have found an even smaller step-up board… and without the header pins I had to desolder anyway.
  10. It barely fits… but it does! I need to find more flexible wires though for the power lines. I made the first closed version (yes I did add proper isolation before), just lacks the paint job, label, and slide-lock which I still have to order.. Now, those step-up boards I had to desolder the pin headers… I'll probably use another one that I can find without them as it's tedious to remove. Also, insulation on those Cat6 wires tend to melt easily on soldering… Oh, and ROHS solder really sucks.
  11. It doesn't actually impact transmissions (ping -f still works) but oh, putting the step-up board close to the wires makes quite some noise. I kinda expected this. Luckily using an aluminum shield completely suppresses them. I did order some copper tape though. It doesn't even seem necessary to wire it to ground or anything. … I did short the 5V at one point when swapping the step-up boards, but the LC-III just rebooted, no PSU was harmed during this experiment. OTOH; I bought spray paint which should have the same color as the other c
  12. I started documenting it on Microsoft GitHub.
  13. Still need to find a proper beige paint for this ugly DA15 blue-grey shell, and something to label it properly then I can ship kits And write the assembly instructions of course.
  14. It's working \o/ This transceiver I just received pumps less than 100mA at 12V, which goes as 250mA from the 5V, so we should be good. Works with external power as well.
  15. Of course now that I post it I notice I messed up the wiring, I used the female plug as reference… bleh.
