    Default Joystick port ESD protector v1.1

    This PCB protects the CIA & SID chips from ESD shocks originating from the joystick port.
    ESD shock to the joystick port is quite common. The ports are close to the power switch and it’s easy to accidentally touch the port pins. Some games & demos even want you to touch the port pins.
    I designed this because my first unit got the CIA damaged and up directions stopped from working. I also show my machines at school and work place events. Many kids and people handle the machines so there is a great risk for damage.

    Designed for Commodore 64 but you can also try it on other machines (0-5V voltage and signal ranges. +5V voltage on pin 7).
    Difference between version 1.0 (sold out) and 1.1 is slightly narrower slot for better fit.

    4€ kit (two PCBs and four ESD chips)
    5€ soldered PCBs (two PCBs with the ESD chips soldered to the PCB)
    Shipping:
    EU 2,40€
    Non-EU 3,60€
    Payment via Paypal. PayPal fee +0,50€. EU bank transfer also possible.
