Why do I see the text "(C)1992 Anchor Electronics Co." in the HEX dump?

Amazing. I'm really hoping to build and test this at some point as a project if I can find the components!

Holy crap, I am SO going to build this. But the component count on this one is really... massive! I think I am NOT going to provide kits for this. But if anyone wants to join in an order of PCBs from JLCPCB, I am all ears. ;)

10 PCBs with enig gold finish, chamfered edge connector will come out at roughly 40 EUR, plus 25 EUR shipping.

Any takers? I would personally want two PCBs. But other than that...

Ok, I have put up a Google sheet:

https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/ ... sp=sharing

I won't order more than 10... I will later add shipping costs (warning: might not be possible as letter, but only as parcel, German post has changed their shipping rules at the beginning of this year!!)

So.. since this has the sockets for the CMS chips, and the model number silkscreened is CT-1320C, it is technically a Sound Blaster 1.5 replica.

Anyway, I already have an original but would like to compare the output with the replica. I wonder if it will be cleaner due to new caps.

And the name is awesome as well.

I noticed this on the github page about the firmware:

Code: Select all
The Firmware
There are two ways to get a programmed 80C51 chip for the Snark Barker. One is to purchase a SB 2.0 DSP chip from China and put it in a 44-PLCC to 40-DIP adapter. This works fine and provides the largest feature set.

Another option is to buy a blank Atmel 89S51 (as listed in the BOM) and program it with this HEX file.


what is this "SB 2.0 DSP chip from China" , anyone knows?!
also added my self on that sheet :cool:
