SaRuMan-TED 64k RAM for C16 and C116

I am now offering a new type of 64k RAM expansion for the C16 and C116.

This type of expansion installs under the TED and is extremely compact. It uses modern static RAM which uses a trickle amount of power. It uses special thin pins adapted to the peculiar (as in dirt cheap...) 48 pins socket installed by Commodore in the C16 and C116.

NO MODIFICATIONS REQUIRED!, no bending of pins and very small size. Comes with a switch to toggle between 16k/64k - a reset is required when switching between these modes.

The price tag is 20$US or 18 Euros per unit + shipping.

The version with NO SWITCH (64k all the time) is 13.50$US or 12 Euros per unit + shipping.
You can still go back to 16k by connecting the 2 connection points or installing your own switch.

Shipping a small packet (up to 8 units) to the US is 8$. Shipping cost for Australia/NZ and South America is 10$US, Europe is 8 Euros.

Quantity discounts are applicable. Comes with a 90 days money back guarantee and a 3 year guarantee afterwards.

The smallest 64k expansion for the C16 - C116 EVER!

The switch can be attached directly to the SaRuMan-TED board if requested. By default, the switch is attached to 6" (15cm) of wires and can be installed either between the cartridge port and modulator or on the right side, close to the joystick ports.

There was an error on PCB V1.2 and everyone who got it received a refund. The issue has been identified and resolved.

Current PCB is V1.4 and is fully tested with DIAG264.

All the people who got V1.2 and got a refund can get one V1.4 unit for half the normal price. That's 9 Euros+shipping.
