Re: A new generation of PLA for the C64 is now available.

I don't mind if people buy all the other PLA replacements, then they can buy ours if (when) they get problems. That said you can of course use a non fully functional PLA for years and not have any problems - until you try that special cart or fun new hardware and it starts to crash now and then. ;-)...

Re: A new generation of PLA for the C64 is now available.

It's because we don't want to throw pin pieces away or piece together pin strip parts to fill all needed positions. The 40 pin strips are divided into 14+13+4+9 and 14+13+13 so that two 40pin strips will cover three U17 PLAnktons. The circled pin is originally "Chip Enable" and is not used by the U1...

Re: A new generation of PLA for the C64 will soon be available.

I finally got the parts I ordered, unfortunately I have a bad cold, coughing, sneezing and SMD soldering is not a good combination (so much crawling on the floor looking for components) so I expect not to start shipping until next week.

Thanks for your patience.

Re: A new generation of PLA for the C64 will soon be available.

Well, it says "The C64 Reloaded can work with any PLA revision that was used by Commodore (8700-based, 7700-based and 82S100-based), with CPLD-based replacement circuits such as SuperPLA V3 and RealPLA." U17 PLAnkton is a CPLD-based replacement circuit. So even if it was supposed to work from start ...

Re: A new generation of PLA for the C64 will soon be available.

It's a common chip to fail, it could be worth a try.
