Kicad conversion of the Thomson MO5

Post by sporniket »

To change a little from the ST world, I started to convert into Kicad the Thomson MO5 computer, for now the v1 board (there are a v2 and v3 boards, that I plan to do later provided I am able to get one of those)

For now the schematic is done, and like the ST, I plan to remake the PCB. (This is one of my summer projects, along with the remake of the 260/520ST).

People can get the schematic in a nice PDF here : https://github.com/sporniket/kicad-conv ... .0.0-alpha

Last month, I finished to replicate the PCB ( see there : https://github.com/sporniket/kicad-conv ... 0.0-beta-1 for all the files), and I received it today.

There are some little details to fix, but mecanically, it perfectly fit inside the case, and the mounting screws are at their expected locations. I need to do further check on the electric and mecanical side now.
