ST536 STE EDITION

Post by exxos »

In light of discussions over in the for sale thread. I have started to plot a more specific STE version.

I'm still not sure if there would be enough height for the CPU to go into a socket. But the shielding could actually be cut around that area anyway. My hope is that there will be enough room and that the shielding could actually be used as a heatsink for the CPU.

Please note because of my RSI I'm not able to do much routing on this at any one time. But I have made a start.

I think you could be 'on the money' with this. I'd certainly solder a CPU if it meant having it so conveniently inside an STe. There are two 020 STe projects being released at the moment, so I think this kind of device is definitely something people want and the enthusiasts would punt for an 030 over an 020.

With a little tweaks it becomes like "mob programming" : the person on the chair is "the driver" i.e. just do what the others ("navigators") tell him to do.

I just realised that's the ROM mounted above the CPU pins! Genius.
