Hello VCF, first post (so move to correct forum space if in wrong space).

I am looking for a XTIDE v2 PCB.
Where do I find one?

sadly, they are out of stock. there may be an individual who picked one up but never got around to building it who might get one for you. There was a post like that just a few days ago here, but I'm sure it's gone already.

there are other XTIDE cards coming out, in CPLD versions, so you should be able to get something IDE going very soon.
eeguru and pearce_jj are your contacts.

Oki, that is good to know.
Is the UART included? I am really interested in that feature of the card, as well as the IDE part of course.

the CPLD cards do not have any UART support. You could still get a CPLD XTIDE card, load the universal BIOS on it and have UART support on another IO card in the system. Ideally that other IO device would have a 4x oscillator chip and a 16550, but that would replicate all the features of the XTIDEv2.

Can I get my hands on the design files for the XTIDE v2 so I can order a batch of cards?
I love the idea of "I can really build it my self", surface mounting and CPLD is not a thing that gives me that feeling since I can't do it my self.
