Buy / Sell MiSTer Expansion Boards

Postby gagadagatika » Thu Aug 17, 2017 5:14 pm

This thread is meant as main contact point for people who make MiSTer expansion boards and those who want to get one.

Manufactures like PCBway and EasyEDA make PCBs only in quantities of at least 5 Boards. The shipping cost of those orders is much higher as the boards itself. Therefore, it makes sense to share those cost with others that are interested in an expansion board.

If you are planning to assemble your own MiSTer expansion board like the IO-Board or SDRAM-Board:

Image

... then why not buy components for all boards and sell the spare boards here?
... or just sell the PCB unassembled so others can save on the shipping costs.

More information about how to assemble MiSTer expansion boards can be found in the MiSTer Wiki: https://github.com/MiSTer-devel/Main_MiSTer/wiki

IO-Boards: Sold Out

I won't assemble more boards anytime this year because I am already completely reserved for other projects that need to be completed. I plan to start the assembly again in the beginning of next year (with new equipment). I hope some people here have some spare time to help others out and make some more boards. Until then, thank you for all the support and positivity. you guys are the best!

:cheers:

UPDATE (06. November 2017):
Sorry for the late response but work is keeping me busy. All boards are shipped and I will send out the tracking numbers later in the evening.

UPDATE (04. November 2017):
This stuff is getting exhausting :D testing, e-mails and packaging. I am printing the address sticker right now and then everything will be set for shipping. The whole logistic around this project is almost more work than the soldering itself.

Image Image Image


UPDATE (02. November 2017):
All boards are assembled and will be tested tomorrow morning. I have also soldered all RTC boards already, so I hope to send out all orders by tomorrow. I will contact each one of you to confirm the address and remaining payments. so check your emails tomorrow. now I will watch some netflix and get some sleep.

Image Image Image

UPDATE (01. November 2017):
Just some headers and some testing left. I plan to ship all orders without RTC board on Friday. The rest will be sent out on Monday if everything goes well.

It doesn't look like much at first sight, but there are 1360 soldered components on that table 8O

Image Image

UPDATE (31. October 2017):
Another Day, another 6 hours of work. We have now 8 working units. I have tested all boards and everything works perfectly. I have tested VGA & Audio via the NES Core and the SD-Card reader with the new Atari 5200. Buttons and LEDs are also working.

Image Image

I resoldered the cable of all fans to fit the fan connector on the board. I don't know why I didn't buy fans with connectors in the first place. However, as TorsteinP already said nicely in the IO-Board Thread, the fans are not as silent as promised in the datasheet (20dBA). They are actually much noisier. Those fans cost $5, so it was somehow expected, but I hoped they would keep up to the advertised loudness. :shrug: so well, shame on me. I guess some of you will replace those with higher quality fans or add a resistor to bring the RPM down.

Image Image

Finally, I have started to assemble another 6 Boards and was able to solder the back of all boards. I will hopefully finish up all 20 Boards by tomorrow, lets see.

Image


UPDATE (30. October 2017):
Alright, I almost finished 7 Boards today after 6 hours of work. I will continue tomorrow evening.

Image Image


UPDATE (29. October 2017):
Sneak Peak of the first test run. I will make multiple boards at once tomorrow, let's see how many I can make :)

Image


UPDATE (26. October 2017):
PCBs arrived today. I will be back in Germany on Saturday and start with the assembly. We are almost there guys!

Image


UPDATE (25. October 2017):
I had to answer some emails from DHL customs department the last couple of days. JLCPCB did some mistakes on the declaration forms and I had to fix that. Apparently, the clearance process is now complete and the package will be further transported whenever DHL "Express" feels that way. I just want to point out that it is now exactly one month since I've made the PCB order :coffe:


UPDATE (18. October 2017):
JLCPCB contacted me again and they finally managed to send out the PCBs (6 Days later as promised). Just to give you an overview about how this all went so far:

25. September: Order placed for 20 IO-Boards (v5.2) + 1 Stencil & 20 RTC Boards + 1 Stencil
27. Septmeber: JLCPCB Support sends me an email about the PCB placement on the stencil.
05. October: I send them an email to ask about the status of my order. I get the response that the support is "out of office for the National Day holiday from 10/1~10/8, and will be back 09-10-2017."

11. October: JLCPCB support sends an email about the stencil layers of RTC Board.
11. October: Another email that confirms that all PCBs are ready and they are just waiting for the stencil. They say the order would be shipped by the next day.
17. October: I get the shipping number from JLCPCB
18. October: DHL received the package and its finally on its way to Germany.

This wouldn't be much of a problem if I wouldn't travel so much between Denmark and Germany. I will be in Denmark next week again and the PCBs are now going to Germany. The thing that really causes me headaches is the unreliability of the delivery dates they give me.

Lets see if the package gets through customs without problems. :roll:

Status of the components:

Hi, I would like to order the 1 Vertical SDRAM board and 1 I/O board. Can't PM any of the sellers. Probably cause this is my first post. Will delete once order is done.

I've bought a large number of the universal memory boards. As I'm in Australia and the cost to post to and from here Overseas is prohibitively expensive, if there is anyone in Australia that would like a bare Memory PCB ( and only the PCB sorry ) let me know and I'll snail mail it to you at cost.

Just to confirm another 3 IO boards along with 1 memory board are available for purchase now, with shipping second working day from day of payment. Details about boards are listed in the posts above. Should anyone be interested, please let me know via PM.

If anyone wants to sell some spares, I would like 1 or 2 PCBs of the universal SDRAM board.

Just the PCB. No RAM, no capacitor, no connector.

I'm in France (not in Australia, sorry yellperil ;-) ).

I'd like to buy 2x IO bards and 2x memory (vertial) boards.

I just ordered a DE-10 nano kit to use for Mister. I am aware I will need expansion boards to use this for Mister. I would like a memory and IO board or if there is a 2 in 1 solution that will work. I am in the US and would like completed/built boards if possible. I can pay via Paypal, please let me know what my options are and how to proceed. Please and thanks! I am excited to try this out and want to thank all the developers for their hard work on this project.

I have ordered the PCB and Stencil for the RTC board about two weeks ago but there was a one week holiday in China (National Day Golden Week) and they had some troubles producing the stencil. I've got in contact with JLCPCB today and they said they are going to ship it tomorrow, so I expect it to arrive next week. I will update my post (here) soon, but I have to catch up with the pre-orders of the IO-Board first. I will make a small run of RTC boards with the IO-Boards together, so everyone who ordered an RTC-Board with the IO-Board will get one.

.... and by looking on my list, that includes you too :P

I need 2x SD boards (vertical) and 2x IO boards. Anyone selling them at this time?

I could take kit form if that helps?

If anyone in the U.S. is interested, I am going to build a batch of add-on boards. I have SMT equipment here for making prototypes, so I can build a few dozen sets in an afternoon.

I am interested, I am in So. California so this will be great for me. I bought my FPGA Arcade from you earlier this year but you can never have too many of these toys. Are you going to list them on your website?
