CleoRAM - 2MB/4MB GeoRAM clone exp. w battery backup

Post by eslapion »

CleoRAM is available! You can order now!

57$US (50 Euros) for the 2MB version, 90$US (77 Euros) for the 4MB version. Shipping to the US is 8$US, shipping to Europe is 8 Euros.


This expansion uses HALF THE POWER OF AN ORIGINAL FASTLOAD CARTRIDGE!! LARGER POWER SUPPLY NOT REQUIRED!
- measured at 35 mA during testing equivalent to 1.5 times the power of a green LED!

Gold plated edge connector!

You must provide a CR2032 lithium battery. It is estimated the battery will require replacing once every 3 years.

No case is provided: The board shape is exactly the same as those of game cartridges made by Commodore in the 1980s so you can either 3D print your own case with publicly available files or buy a standard case from many different sources.

Warning GeoRAM compatible RAM expansions are NOT compatible with Commodore 17XX REU.

See: http://www.c64os.com/post/georamdigi
Look for "How is GeoRAM different from a 17xx REU?"

Technical note: Using a Turbo232 or Swiftlink

This note is valid for CleoRAM or any other GeoRAMs original or clone.

In order to use a Turbo232 along with CleoRAM you MUST ensure the memory area setting is changed from the default $DEXX. This area is used as page data by CleoRAM or any GeoRAMs or other clones.

Setting the Turbo232 to use $DFXX resolves the issue. GeoRAMs or clones use the top part of the $DFXX area for control registers but the bottom part is unused and available for the registers of a Turbo232 or modern implementations such as GGLabs's GLINK232T.

Technical note: Using a Turbo Master

This note is valid for CleoRAM or any other GeoRAMs original or clone.

In order to use a Turbo Master along with CleoRAM you MUST obtain a Master Adapter or clone of it.

COREi64 makes clones of the Master Adapter and they are sold here: https://corei64.com/shop/index.php?rout ... uct_id=234
