There is a project to port MSX1 games to SV-328 and SVI-328 computers. A few games are already ported. More are coming. I made a batch of boards for myself and I am selling 6 of them for a low price - 4 euro per board + 2 euro shipment to EU countries (4 euros with registered mail). The picture of the boards and the assembled board is below.

As you can see here, my SV-328 is playing Road Fighter. :)

Please contact me if you are interested.

Great job except for pins that are not gold plated. The pins will enjoy.

The cartridge was not designed by me btw. And for the price of gold plated board I can buy 3 normal boards.

There are 4 boards that are still available and there will not be another batch. So if you need any of them, please send me an e-mail.

Tin plated contacts contaminate the connector with tin and rust, making it prone to poor contact. The gold plated boards are desirable for a very good reason:

They don't rust and they don't leave residues on the contact plates at the connector.

The price of a gold plated board is triple comparing to a normal one. I haven't seen too many gold plated boards in hobby projects. Maybe for a good reason. Smile

Hey, Alexey would you have some design files for those PCBs? I've started to work on a sram based cartridge and some base design would be nice specially during the prototype phase. That ROM PCB should be enough for me to just connect SVI cart pins to protoboard...

I can sell the cartridge board to you, I still have one left. The design is not mine, so I can't share it without an OK from the author. See my mail.

Does it correspond to the boards shown in this thread?
