    I see you have found some DIN connectors. If you run out, I may have access to some. I think I have right-angled male plugs (solder type) and straight female sockets (push fit).

    I suppose it is also worth pointing out that there are two (2) +5V regulators (and, therefore, two +5V rails) on the PET 2001N.

    Obviously, both dc supplies need to be within tolerance for the PET...

    The AIM-65 is supposed to interface to the serial world via a 20 mA current loop.

    Post #28 should cover the rail voltages.

    Worth double-checking them though with an oscilloscope - looking for dc level and ripple/noise.

    That should put the rail voltage issue to be fairly...

    Tom,

    Yes, the text "write" appears to be hard-coded where the warning appears - but the previous messages correctly identify the transaction as a read.

    Does this imply there is a fault...

    Those traces look fine to me (on a quick check at least).

    As you can see, triggers are the all important factor with both an oscilloscope and a logic analyser. If you suspect that a write is not...

    Hi Greg,

    You need to be a little bit careful with what you are looking at on a scope / logic analyser. You need to know what is happening on the CPU at the time interval you are specifically...

    2. A video card for the ‘commercial’ bus.
