    Default Final Cartridge III+ PCB / Kit Pre-Order

    Hi everyone!

    I'm going to do a PCB run of the Final Cartridge III+ design created by e5frog. The PCBs will be $5.50 each ($5 each if using PayPal Gift) and Full Kits will be $21.00 each ($20 each if using PayPal Gift) + shipping.

    If I get pre-orders for at least 20 PCBs then the PCBs will be done with a red solder mask, otherwise they will be green. *UPDATE* Plenty of orders for the red PCBs.

    Please let me know if you are interested in a full kit or just the PCB. The cost of full kits will ultimately depend on how many people want kits. I'm not doing this for profit, but I really don't want to lose money on it either.

    Thanks!

    Heather

    *UPDATE* The cost for anyone expressing interest in a kit after 11/7/14 needs to add an additional $1 to the price of the kit. I ran out of EEPROMs from my initial order and this increase in cost is to cover the higher price of the chip since I need to buy in a smaller quantity. This increase does not affect anyone who had previously ordered a kit.

    PCB prices have not changed.

    Hi Heather,

    this sounds like a great idea, could you mention what parts are needed to build this with just the circuit board or what will be in the kit as parts and will there be a blank eprom with the bin file or a programmed eprom etc. I haven't done any research for this as I only just read your thread today so please forgive the rough way i've asked about it.

    I know that these come up now and then and are very popular so these new ones should go pretty fast, you can put me down for 2 PCBs which I may change to kit once I find what is needed (now changed to 2 full kits instead of just PCBs)

    Cheers,
    Allen

    I realized I didn't answer your question. With the kits, I will provide the EPROMs and can program them if you don't have a programmer. I'll also provide a link to the file.

    I forgot to mention in my first post that this is using an updated ROM version that's not in the original FC-III cartridges. I'll pull together a list of what's new in a bit.

    Here's a look at the PCB in red.



    Thanks everyone!
