Could this be Xenepp selling off the extra boards that he didn't have time to populate?

Bought one! Where can I find the BOM, to start RSing the components?

All 5 have gone now... If thats all five sold in a matter of hours... imagine how quickly a load of fully aseembled ones would sell!?


Depends on how many people want them. The episode guide for Mystery Science Theater 3000 sold out very quickly, so they made another printing run. Turns out that all the people that really wanted to buy the book had done so on the first printing, so it took a while for the second printing to get sold. Let's hope there's more than 5 people who want a nusim minimig pcb.

Let's suppose that there were oonly 5 people in need of a minimig 1.1 pcb, all the have to do is assemble a fully working minimig and those will sell no doubt. Also, selling them thru ebay does not mean they already have built them, they have a bloody factory, they could assemble the needed amount as orders pile-up, it is a win-win situation :-D

I see 12 available, all BuyItNow.  I almost bought one, but I have no easy way of acquiring the parts. Bugger.


More have been listed. That 12 is now 9! Not quite selling like hot cakes but fully assembled would i bet!

I bought myself a bare mobo, so now i have a nice project for the could and dark winter season   :-D
Now i just have to check out the component list, and look for component suppliers here in Finland.

Ooh! I might go get one for myself actually, just to show support. I have my fingers crossed that soon a ready-made  Minimig will be available!

If the worse comes to the worse, I'll just get it framed and it'll be a piece of modern art!

DFM Check

This might be slightly off-topic...
Yesterday, (before I read this thread) I contacted a company for a quote to get the minimig PCB board made. I sent them the Gerbers for a DFM check but they came back with numerous errors. (Elements of the PCB design being too close together etc.. I'm not really sure what it means... is it a design problem, or a warning of problems that might happen when PCBs are printed?)

Are these resolved on the boards currently on ebay?
(If it makes sense to ask this question)

Thanks. Apologies in advance if this is a stupid question.

These are warnings that point out various possible design faults. The company should know what the minimum spacing they can do, etc. for instance, so they should be able to tell you whether they can manufacture it or not. Many times, certain DMF warnings are ignored on purpose, for instance, if you know that two holes for pin-through components are too close together and you also know that it is inside your manufacturer's margins and the components do not collide in real life within those margins, you ignore them. These Gerbers have already produced working boards so if the manufacturer can produce them as they are they will work.

I did buy one with that in mind.  If fully populated boards become available before I try to put this one together, I will frame it.  $25US isn't really outrageous for a piece of art.

I'm kind of hoping that this is a test run to see if there is enough interest to do a populated run.

Of course, Crom00 is ready to get pricing on fully populated boards.  He only seems to be stuck on getting a full Bill Of Materials.

Anyone?  Anyone?

Now, I have the soldering tools and ability (fingers crossed), thanks to investing in a hot air solder rework station a few months back, but I don't have the FPGA programming tools - does anyone have the skills and tools to supply the FPGA?

The FPGA is programmed directly from the SD/MMC card whic you'll have to write from a PC or MAC I guess. Did you mean a PIC programmer instead as I think that has to be programmed.

I'm just waiting for two blank boards, one from Xenepp and the other from the ebay auction :-D

I've got two front PCMCIA ports on my A4000 which work perfectly with SD/MMC card readers/writers, so I'll try to keep this an "all Amiga" project :-) I even bought the bare board using my AmigaOne to access Ebay :lol:

Thanks mate, didn't realise that. Yes, I'd need to source a programmed PIC, or a PIC programmer. Might be relatively cheap to source, or I could try contacting on old University professor who might be interested...

How is it that you have PCMCIA ports on an A4000?
I have an IDE-to-CF adapter, but I didn't know you could add PCMCIA ports to an Amiga that didn't already have them :)
