    Default Innovation SSI-2001 (replica)

    Replica of rare PC sound card - Innovation SSI-2001.
    This card was introduced in late 1980-s and contains one "SID" chip (MOS6581 from Commodore 64), putting it onto ISA 8-bit bus.
    Officially supported back than by less then 20 games.
    Nowdays it can play MIDI files (via PX Player), *.SID files from Commodore (via beta version of player) and has support for 100+ games based on AIL/MIDPAK, AIL/32 and Miles Sound System.
    This replica was brought to life by members of Vogons and Phantom forums.

    Features:
    • Uses ISA 8-bit or 16-bit slot on any board (tested on boards from 80386 up to P4-3000 LGA775)
    • Extensive silkscreen on PCB for easy assembling and setup
    • Main chip can be MOS6581 or MOS8580
    • SID clock is configurable: 0.89 MHz (original SSI-2001) or 1.02 MHz (C64 NTSC)
    • Selectable SID registers port address: 0x280, 0x2A0, 0x2C00 or 0x2E0
    • 3.5 mm output and 3.5 mm inpus jacks (+internal output header)
    • If input is disconnected than SID's input is shunted to ground to prevent noise pickup
    • Standard joystick port (0x201) that can be switched off


    What was changed from the original board:
    • Fully manual PCB tracing: more accurate trace layout
    • Added extensive silkscreen onto PCB
    • PCB is smaller
    • Added ceramic caps for logic ICs across power rails (there were none)
    • Ceramic/film capacitors now can be either with 2.5 or 5 mm pitch
    • All electrolytic caps now are radial (there were axial capacitors before)
    • SID chip can now be either MOS6581 or MOS8580: added footprint for optional +9 V regulator (only +12 V MOS6581 could be used before)
    • SID clock now can be configured: 0.89 MHz (original SSI-2001) or 1.02 MHz (C64 NTSC)
    • "Audio in" of the SID is closed with 100 nF capacitor to ground (RF protection)
    • RCA audio output jack was replaced with 3.5 mm
    • Added internal audio output header (double mono)
    • Added connections for C64 joystick inputs (Pot X, Pot Y)
    • Custom mounting bracket from PCB material

    Ok, I'll start assembling one for you soon.
    Should I configure your board for 6581 or for 8580? You can change it later with soldering iron and provided +9 V regulator.

    One kit is reserved for you.

    As stated: shipping cost is included in price. Do you want your board to be configured for 6581 or 8580?
