New "exxos style" Falcon PSU coming soon

Postby exxos » Mon Jul 25, 2016 9:03 am

exxosfalcpsu.jpg


A more Falcon specific PSU in the final prototype stages. This one has a revised PCB (thicker copper also) along with more 5V & 12V connections allowing the Falcon power connector to fit easier. These PSU's will have the power connector fitted as the wires are not long enough to re-use on the old falcon PSU.

Read more about it here.

http://www.exxoshost.co.uk/atari/last/psu/index.htm#FALCPSU

I don't have a release date as I am building up ST PSU's currently among other things, so will likely be a couple of months before they start to see signs of production. I have not worked out a price for them either, but likely will be slightly more expensive than the ST one due to the extra parts and work involved.

I do have a lot of "untested" ST PSU's. I have been asking people if they would like a complete "ready to plug in" PSU but the price would be more expensive as I would have to basically write off the ST PSU's to obtain the metalwork. I have not checked if the ST metalwork will fit the Falcon, but assume so. So while I can supply it "PCB only" like the ST PSU, would be be interested i a complete build, albeit a lot higher price ?

No interest in these PSU's complete or just PSU board only ? If there is no demand I will spend time on some other projects instead.

Well i would be interested if i had a falcon or another st (f or e) but being not the case i'm not interested for now, and i think i'm not the only one, there are definitely persons who will be interested, just give them time.

How's the store going, Exxos? I'd love one of these for my Bird once you get them going and the store issues worked out. I should probably get a new PSU for the TT030 and Mega STe as well (US versions, since we still are silly enough to use different voltages.)

Falcon PSU just needs the final design verifying, I did a lot of testing 2 months ago so not far off a production run, but with so many projects on the go and the delay starting because of my store.. its going to take a while to catch up and indeed recover currently lost funds in my paypal account.

Uh, did they freeze your PayPal assets? They don't let you transfer your money to another account?

I'm locked out of my paypal account for 6 months, all my funds are frozen meanwhile :( I literally have to start over and build up funds again so I can start buying in parts again :roll:

I think I do have all the Falcon PSU parts, aside from the cable.. I have built up a working board, hence the image, but I want to soak test it for some time before selling them, I don't want to get into the habit of rushing stuff to market without testing it properly first.

Good to see the store back up! Would be nice if you could split the items out per system. Since I currently have the three highest end STs (Mega STe, TT030, Falcon) as well as a 1040STfm (that has a video issue) it's a bit more difficult for me to see what I can buy off you! Actually it'd be awesome if I could get a 32Mhz booster for the Mega STe, but I think the one you make is only for the ST/STe/Mega ST? (Atari and their naming scheme...)

The machines I work with are Basically the ST/F/M and more recently the STE type machines. I don't have a MSTE..TT etc. Rodolphe is working on a MSTE booster anyway, so there is no use in us both designing boosters for that machine. The MEGA ST is basically the same as the ST design so doesn't really need anything special for it exactly.

With likely 90% of stuff being designed for the ST series and a few odd items for other machines, I'm not sure it would be worth splitting them up again into other sections at this point in time. I've sectioned off into categories which the previous store did not have. So if you wanted to look for RAM upgrades for any machine then you just click the RAM button and it takes you to that section. Theres only a few items in each section anyway, so doesn't take long to look though ;)

I'd be definitely interested in the Falcon PSU, the more complete the better. :)

I guess the real question would be, will it fit with the CT60e? I'm betting not, and we'd have to go the pico psu route for that.

The CT60 needs a totally different PSU as it needs 3.3V.

Do you know if it needs all the 3,3V lines from a ATX PSU ?

The lines are there to improve regulation, so the less you use, the worse your regulation will be.

I know people are still waiting for these. So much going on lately just progress is really slow.

Transformers arrived yesterday. I have a lot of soldering to do yet though. I've tested about 30 boards so far and all working. So once the connectors are soldered with the transformers, they should be in my store. They are listed now in fact but no stock yet.

https://www.exxoshost.co.uk/atari/last/storenew/#0094

The last stock of the ST PSU's has just about run out. The falcon PSU will take over from the ST one, though more expensive PCB and parts so the price will be higher from now on. The Falcon one is more expensive due to the connector parts and assembly time involved.
