    Default Getting boards made...

    Guy's I normally use PCBWay to get boards made because they are pretty cheap and fast turn around for small boards. However, this time I uploaded the Gerber's and got a message "we need Gerber file in format of RS-274x" What does that mean.. You see the files are .brd and the ones that I normally send are .gbr. I tried Eagle. But that program can't save the files to .gbr format..

    EDIT: just ordered the boards, so all ok.. However I'm looking to get a 060. however, all are from China, so how do I know which are fakes, is this one a fake guys..

    EDIT: I've found a Freescale one, and it's not from China (But was very cheap). Though I know that it don't have a FPU...

    Yeah... All the parts are ordered, so I can build some boards. Anyway Guys (Just wondering that's all).. Was the Gerber files available for this board or not, as I do have the build list though and old boards that I can pull a part (For the connectors ect)..

    There exists >NO< MC68060RC66 ever. 75G59Y is also the mask value of an MC-Qualified EC/LC Rev 4 part.

    The (Rev 6) were only ever marked MC68060RC50 (The MC without an EC/LC in the string implies the Rev 6. But only the XC, Rev 1 and 5, were ever marked 66MHz)

    The MC68EC060RC (and LC) have markings of 50, 60, 66 and 75, as they are the Rev 4 'qualified' part.

    My definitive research is all here: http://www.amibay.com/showthread.php...ghlight=75G59Y

    The only definitive way to ID a chip is to plug it in and read the PCR (Chucky's DiagROM, CPU060 tool response, WhichAmiga with a 68060.library loaded - either are valid).

    Flag the seller as selling fake re-labeled parts.
