Charles's McDonald pal dumper pcb design
« on: August 08, 2017, 01:12:20 PM »
Hello all,



Long times ago , one of my Sega Touring Car driver boards died. I tracked the problem to a secured PAL which didn’t work anymore. At that time, i sent a working PAL to Caius for dumping and he delivered !! (thanks again!!). And, i was able to resurrect the driver board.

After that, i told to myself, that it would be cool if i was able to dump those PAL myself. So i decided to build the adaptor from the world famous Charles McDonald ;) http://dreamjam.co.uk/emuviews/readpal.php And i took it as an learning project to design the pcb using Eagle. I was able to dump the pal i sent to Caius and had the same result in the end ;)

You can find the pcb design here https://github.com/pascalorama/paldumper

cheers
