HxC Install Inside Atari STFM

Post by Firedawg » Tue May 17, 2011 7:13 pm

Just a quick install of my HxC in my Atari STFM. Made some connector changes on the pcb to accommodate a new floppy cable as seen in the pictures. Basically, mounted the HxC where the old floppy drive sat at the access port on the side of the unit. My next step will be to move the LCD to a window port so it can be seen, as well as the 3 button navigators.

Added an exterior picture. Still planning on moving the LCD to an exterior location on the case, but will consider that for the moment as cutting is a permanent activity and proper planning is very important.

Note: The cable origination marker is not position at Pin 1. It is actually reversed at both locations, so it works but does mislead the viewer.

Nice, will be interesting to see how you tackle the LCD position idea.

Still have not done it. Taking my Dremel to the case makes me nervous, but I will plan it out and get it done.
