I am searching for an I/O Board new Rev. with micro-SD Slot. The board should be assembled.

I've builded up some 5.2 IO-Boards (testing them at the moment) and will offer them in a couple of days.
Basically 2 are finished - waiting for the TosLinks for the others (that are laying around in Heathrow since Saturday now)
Only 'problem' - I don't have the fans (I've decided for Noctua as they are silent).
So if you are interested in a fully assembled board without fan (Nylon Screws and Power Connector I'll put to the board and can also offer you the cooler - just the fan is missing) feel free to send me a PM.

Hi

I've just received a small batch of SRAM boards. The production run was rather expensive so I've put a couple of them on ebay to recoup some of the cost.

I've installed the headers in the vertical configuration.

All smd parts were professionally assembled and the boards have been successfully tested to 160mhz.

If anyone is interested the links are

There are still some SDRAM-boards available.

I've seen high prices but 50 squid for a sdram board seems a bit over the top. Did you buy your parts on amazon? XD

Keep in mind that this is a community project and we're here to help each other out. That's at least what I think. I bought my Ram board for 20.

20 € I guess :D
This is 50 Pounds .... 56,71€
On one hand I can understand - if he has done it using a company (here in Europe) the charge already 200€ for initial costs .....
And everything not SMD is quite expensive ....
And if I only produce 10 .....

On the other hand I'm a little pissed off - @Cebion - I also think that this is a comunity project ....
I really think about offering some SD Ram Board at eBay for 20€ just for letting others not step into this .... (OK, 22€ :-) - eBay Charge)

I'm going to sell my assembled IO Boards for 40€ (without fan) what will dave19 ask for? 150?

Thank you! I was not the only one. :)
This is exactly what I thought and the reason for the hint to my boards.

I paid about 30€ for my I/O board parts (only 5 batch) so 40€ was also my price.
And I didn't even have a stencil or hotairgun with solderpaste. So manual soldering on everything.

Thanks for the solidarity to make this project grow =)

Sorry it's a bit steep, when I needed a board there was none for sale and no indication that any would be soon. As MISTER is pretty much useless without the RAM I ended up ordering a production run of 4 boards which cost me well over £200. So I am effectively selling these at cost (albeit a rather high cost).

I wish I'd known that ch570512 was going to produce some I'd have just ordered one of those. But to keep costs down the production run took over a month (pcb fabrication seems exterionate in the UK) so I made the decision back in March.

Sorry, didn't mean to annoy the community

That's why i've released the gerber. Anyone can do it yourself and even sell for those who can't/don't want make it.
And this will make a healthy competition. Anyone can choose what price they want to pay.

Higher price doesn't exactly mean a better quality. Recently I've removed the post on Facebook group where one seller offered SDRAM board for 59€. Although i'm pretty tolerant to price and i think it's up to buyers to choose what price to pay if there are more choices, but that seller used wrong connectors. And to my question about it, he gave not his pictures of mounted SDRAM on DE10-nano (he used NegSol pics and video) which is definitely cheating i couldn't accept. So, i want to tell i won't tolerate the cheating!
With open source i hope there will be less such strange offers.
Thanks to THaase, JimDrew and others who offer the boards with fair price.

If you still have boards for sale, please publish your offers on Facebook group as well: https://www.facebook.com/groups/1870135613286506/

My post wasn't toward to you. I understand that some people might have higher expenses to build the boards.
As i've told, i'm pretty much tolerant to prices.
I'm more concern to the quality.

Thanks. I think the quality is high as the fabrication company installed all the smd components. I only soldered on the headers which matched the parts list on the wiki.

I'll run whatever tests people wish but they seemed error free at 160mhz for the 45 mins I left them each, errors do appear at 166mhz.

I am not on Facebook (and never likely to be) I'm afraid but feel free to let any groups know about them.

Damn, production run is indeed costly.
You should definitely add the to the description, that the boards were manufactured in a factory.

OK, just as an idea.
I think that this thread is slightly confusing in the meanwhile.

What about the following:
A new thread "Boards" to sell (or whatever).
Table with everybody who is selling boards.
Additional information about location, number of boards, shipping costs and so on.
Basically Jim Drew can better serve US marked as my shipping costs from Germany are already high - for sure, if somebody want me to send to US or somewhere else in the world I'll do.

@Cebion:
I've paid about 20€ for the parts of one board (20pcs batch) - also no strencil, but hotair and quite good equipment.
But charging more than 15€/h doesn't feel good!
I also want that this project is growing and will not sell more than one IO to a person (unless a very good reason) as I would like to spread the boads as much as possible.

@Sorgelig: Sorry, I have no facebook. Maybe you can post a link to the offers here.
I, for sure, will produce another 10 or so XS boards in the next weeks. Waiting for the parts right now.

I have neither time nor interest to manage the sales. To do what you offer, i will need to monitor every seller and keep the table up to date. Sorry, that's too much too me.
If someone wants to manage then i agree. Create a new thread and give the link in this thread. I will lock this tread and will stick the new one.

I fully understand this! And it was never my intention that you should take over.

I'm willing to help on that, but it would be good if one or two people will do this with me (I can't be always online, even if I check the forum once or twice a day).

I'll genenerate a new topic with only a list of people selling boards - alphabetically sorted by region / county / name - would be good to make it sticky.
But I wouldn't close this topic as this is still a good point to communicate and it would be easier to keep the other topic clean.

How about lock this topic and continue about by/sell in that topic?
You can update the first post with new info when you will need to keep important info on the first post.
Have 2 similar thread will be confusing from my point of view.

But only you and moderators (including me) can update the first post.

Probably can define some rule to help me clean that thread from obsolete messages. If buyer got the deal, then he modify the message to replace his message with something like <done>. So, later i will remove these messages and topic won't grow to fast.
Or may be just remove all messages older than 2 weeks except seller offers.

Sounds fine for me!
Close this and we will continue with the other one.

@ALL: Everybody who want to sell Boards please notify me and I'll update first post in new thread.
@Sellers: I couldn't find out location from some sellers - please inform me if wante (to keep it localized)
