Hey guys, […]
Good news - the boards have arrived, we'll start assembling them soon, so we're on schedule to start orders soon.

So, if I bought bare PCB with bracket, to get all functions of the PCB I would need :
1) Creative CT4520 donor board
2) 32MB SIMM module
3) Soldering equipment/skills
Did I missed something (like caps/ICs/transistors/diodes [elements not present on either AWE donor board or SIMM module]) ?
If so, are there are other pieces that require other donor board(s) ?
Please find attached the exact BOM.Scythifuge wrote on 2021-03-03, 18:05:
This sound card project got me excited about retro computing again!
Great to hear! 😁shan2752 wrote on 2021-03-04, 23:11:
Are these available from a 3rd party in Europe? Thanks!
We don't consider any such options at the moment. We'll be shipping worldwide from Moscow, Russia.vutt wrote on 2021-03-06, 21:31:
1) Will CT4500 work as donor?
2) Are you planning to provide SMD stencil blueprint for cleaner soldering workflow?
1) No, only CT4520.
2) No, but we can provide a file for you to make one if you wish.cyberaxe wrote on 2021-03-26, 12:14:
I'm thinking of buying the bare pcb since i have an awe64 value already, what other components will i need? i couldnt see any info on what is required for that version.
Please see the BOM attached.Bendejo wrote on 2021-04-07, 05:30:
Hi, I just discovered this awesome project and was interested in the bare pcb to try and put it together myself. How difficult would you say this would be?
Well, to be honest, that's not a task I would recommend for a beginner. If you're experienced in soldering small SMD components and/or have the necessary equipment, it shouldn't be VERY difficult either.
I can hardly wait! I will be ordering one, though I am slightly nervous. I bought a Tomato 4DPS mobo with the mouse bracket and a 486DX2 CPU, last month, and it still hasn't arrived. Once tracking information says that the item has left Russia, there is no more information. However, I ordered a Troll Bends Fir CD from a shop in Russia, and it arrived relatively quickly. That may have been prior to covid, however. I can't recall.
