AH, i see that my items are ready. Great :D
I sent you a PM :-)
Please check your inbox, you have a PM.

The controller can be used with Oric Atmos and Oric-1, but the Oric-1 must have ROM, not EPROMs. You can use 5.25", 3.5" and 3" disk drives, HxC, HxC slim and Gotek with HxC firmware.

List updated in first post.
It is not about the last batch yet, right?
You are right, it's not the last batch. As very well Chema said, I don't start a new batch until the last one is finished.

Re: Which EEPROM chip should I get to burn a new ROM?

... Second important thing to remember: you will be NOT able to use microdisk controller together with above EEPROM - pin 27 is used to disable the ROM chip and in AT28C256-15PU this is pin has different function (/WE - write enable).... To use Microdisc controller with EPROM or EEPROM you can use ...

Re: Oric 1 and Atmos - repair help needed

Hi YuT666!

My personal opinion... Before check 6502, 6522 or ROM, I would check the RAM chips, in a 70% or 80% of cases, they are involved in the failures.

Changing RAM to an Atmos. In spanish only, sorry.

Re: OASIS development

I just realized one thing: At the moment the layout of the floppy is to first use the side 0, then the side 1. In term of performance, it would probably make sense to alternate between the two sides, to limit the number of track changes ... Hmm... so many things :D That's a brilliant idea!! Detaile...
