Official parts list

Topics regarding the Uzebox hardware/AVCore/BaseBoard (i.e: PCB, resistors, connectors, part list, schematics, hardware issues, etc.) should go here.

Now the wait....thanks again...I'll let you know how I make out.
No problem. Post some pics when you get it running! :)

Cheers,

Hi! What is a good place, can be obtained from those parts, and ordered to Finland? Sorry bad english. :P

You always have Farnell, they have offices all over the world. Not sure if they have all parts though. Have a look: http://fi.farnell.com/

I recently discovered this great project and would love to build my own uzebox from scratch soon. Some questions:

-Is the parts list from the first post up to date and is an uzebox built with those parts compatible with a commercially available uzebox?
- Are any of the parts SMD? (I'm not that proficient in soldering, haven't done it in a while)
-Is there maybe a basic tutorial available that describes how to build one from scratch (apart from the schematics, just asking as it may make things easier :-))?

The reason I'd like to build one myself (instead of ordering one) is that I want to use this project to learn more about embedded hardware, while keeping it cheap. And I think this project is great for that. Also I love oldskool games :-).

Thanks in advance.

AD725 socket

Post by steve.chamberlin » Thu May 14, 2009 4:36 am

Looking at the parts list, I see the AD725:
1 AD725ARZ-ND IC ENCODER RGB TO NTSC 16-SOIC
A SOJ adapater with a non-standard 0.4" wide spacing:
1 A324-ND SOCKET ADAPTR SOJ/32PIN .400

And a bunch of 0.3" and 0.6" wide wire-wrap sockets:
1 AE10053-ND IC SOCKET MACH PIN WW 40POS GOLD
1 AE10048-ND IC SOCKET MACH PIN WW 16POS GOLD
1 AE10050-ND IC SOCKET MACH PIN WW 20POS GOLD
1 AE10046-ND IC SOCKET MACH PIN WW 8POS GOLD
How is the SOJ adapater going to fit in any of those sockets, since it's a different width? Shouldn't I want the 0.6" wide SOJ socket instead? Digi-Key A323-ND?

Looking at the photos of the original wire-wrap Uzebox, it looks like the SOJ adapter was sawed off and crammed into a smaller wire-wrap socket?

No mysteries here, you are indeed right, it's the wrong socket. For the AD725, you would need a A726-ND which is a SOIC/16PIN .300DIP.

I ordered the A324-ND socket to solder a sram chip back then, must have mixed up part numbers. Thank for bringing that up, I've corrected the part list.

SNES connector

Post by steve.chamberlin » Thu May 14, 2009 6:23 am

Thanks, one last question before I buy my parts:
10 455-1709-ND CONN HEADER PH TOP 7POS 2MM (NES socket plugs)
I believe this is actually a SNES connector, and not a NES connector. However, will a plain old 7-position 2mm connector actually work as a SNES connector? I don't have one handy, but from looking at photos here and elsewhere, it looks like the SNES connector has a group of 4 pins, and a separate group of 3 pins, all in a line, but with a wider spacing between the groups than between the pins. In other words, is a 2mm spacing between all 7 pins actually correct?

Edit: If I'd read 2 posts further down in the hardware forum, I would have seen the discussion of the SNES connectors and the suggestion of buying them on eBay. So I assume I'm correct that the 7-pos 2mm socket from Digi-Key referenced above won't actually fit.

Those sockets definitively matches only the plugs as found in the NES (hand extracted myself originally!). SNES total pins are much wider in total at about 1 1/10th ". while the PH connector is about 1/2". Today it seems the ebay market for SNES connectors in the form of multitaps have pretty dried up. Somebody recommended SNES extension cable though. There's still a lot on ebay and they very cheap.

Interesting... I thought the NES connector was two stacked rows of 4 and 3 pins, as shown in your photo here: http://belogic.com/uzebox/images/board_details.jpg The header I linked from Digi-Key is a single in-line 7 position header.

I'll check for SNES extension cables on eBay, good suggestion.

I ordered the rest of the parts yesterday, so hopefully I'll have a breadboard Uzebox up and running fairly soon.
