Careful there... If you're talking about the photos of mine, that's a MK-II, not a MK-X.
I just want to see if there is any interest for an internal SCSI terminator for owners of a C-LAB Falcon but also for Atari Falcon030 owners that have replaced the internal SCSI terminator resistors with an internal adapter for 2.5" SCSI devices.
Most of you probably modified your Falcon030 to connect a CosmosEx to the internal side of the bus, but if you for any reason in the future want to connect it to external port instead you need to either restore the resistor packs or in some other way terminate the internal side of the SCSI bus.
In my C-LAB Falcon I wanted to keep the possibility to connect an internal SCSI device, but at the moment I want to use the CosmosEx as an external device as I share it between multiple computers. So I designed a very small SCSI terminator that connects to the 40-pin SCSI cable for 2.5" devices. Without the internal termination an external device will not work reliably (at least it did not work for me).
I have a few spare PCBs so please let me know if you're interested, and in that case in what solution:
A) Soldered plug-and-play terminator, ~20 EUR.
B) PCB + parts as a DIY kit, ~10 EUR.
C) PCB only, ~5 EUR.
Shipping is not included in the prices but will be fairly cheap unless you want insurance/tracking. Depending on the demand I may or may not build more units. The bare PCB I can send immediately.
Will this also work for a standard Falcon? What would it need to make use of your fine solution?
