  2. DA15 slide-lock hood with 90 degree entry.

    The title pretty much says it all. Somewhat akin to this one, but 15 pin Dsub and the entry is on the side. Can't seem to find any online.

    Don't let the small caps faze you--I've hand-soldered 0603s with no problem. Just takes a little practice is all. With a hot-air tool, it would be even easier.

    Does the 2K use the PC drive-select convention? That is, are both jumpered to the second drive select and the cable uses a twist to differentiate them? Or does the 2K use first drive=DS1, second...

    Hmmm, that's not right. The 765 should be issuing a "recalibrate" as part of its reset sequence, as the software needs to know the actual position of the drive head--and the only reliable way to do...

    Ah, I think I understand now--you're placing a via in a component soldering pad. I wouldn't do it--vias are formed by a electroless plating process and are, therefore, less robust than regular...

    "Then I've just been plopping vias down right on the solder pads"

    I'm not following. To me, a via is an interlayer device connecting two layers of a PCB. Do you mean something else?

    Do you need a step-by-step on how to take a Tandy 2000 5.25" floppy to a 3.5" DSDD? I've got a 2K sample in my collection, so I'm willing run through the process. You need a PC capable of running...

    Well, it's not as if sheet PU is very expensive. According to the guy at Imation, that's how it was done to get a seamless band. I suppose one could purchase an extruded PU tube and lop segments...

    Curtis (including this model, the PCM) made sold-state drive emulators and was well-known for that up until about 2000. Note the ad here.

    Again, it's all the same chip--just different foundries. The only thing to be really aware of is the non-A parts--they have a much longer start-of-track PLL sync time, which was subsequently found...

    "...in the tandy parts list is a 675a"

    No, it's a NEC D765A, also known as the µPD765A, cross-licensed with Intel as the i8272A; licensed to other manufacturers as well (e.g. Zilog Z0765A).

    I can recall seeing more Univac 1701 keypunch keyboards on the surplus market than the keypunches themselves. Nice unit--more advanced than the 029s.

    Up until recent years, AMD had their own foundry. Now they have to rely on outside resources, which I think, puts a crimp into their production plans. Never understood that move.
