    Search on Jameco for 41256, they'll have them. 150ns or faster (lower numbers are faster) will work.

    Buy 10 of them, and they're only $.69 each, for $6.90 total. Then you'll have a couple spares, in case you get a bad one or bend pins.

    I love what this guy has done.

    Usb to 8bit ide floppy emulator.
    That with a built in HDD and memory expansion and you have the perfect retro Tandy. Maybe a CGA to VGA converter.

    I grew up with a Tandy 1000HX with Modem and DMA/Memory board. IT had dos 2.11 on rom and 640k.
    I have a EX with nothing added now.

    The USB Floppy drive is even more useful if you add an OLED display.



    I wasnt keen on replacing my real drives so I bought a drive chassis (disk drive was dead) from one of the members here and installed it into that. The nice thing about Tandy 1000's is most of them support swapping the drives around by pressing F3 at power on.

    Very nice.

    Do you think one of these would work in a Tandy 1000 HX or EX? i know i would need a isa to plus card adapter but would that be easy enough to get working?

    You dont need the "Internal Gotek adapter" to install the HXC rev F inside an EX (HX yes, but not the EX) - the power is not provided via the Floppy cable, but by a normal Molex power connector.

    You will need the following:

    3.5" to 5.25" drive bay adapter - HERE
    5.25" to 3.5" Power adapter Cable - HERE

    Oh and you'll need a new Amiga style floppy cable with the 3.5" floppy connector on it - HERE

    You need to make sure the cable doesnt have a twist in it as Tandy use the Shugart standard just like Amiga and Atari did.

    here is an interesting article that may have implications if someone could use dual buffer to replace ram by using the faster pie to expand ram and other functionality. It might be possible to share the NIC, Ram, Video output and SD card through one card and one pie. food for thought.
