Faires and Competitions

Our team attended 3 maker faires (Bay area, San Jose and East Bay) where we met many friends, a few customers and introduced retrocomputing to hordes of curious kids. We also took part in the retrochallenge RC2017/10 competition. Sadly we missed VCF west, but we will try to attend next year.

New Products

We introduced a few brand new projects: the GLINKUSB-LT commodore user port to USB serial, the F2R16 ROM emulator for Amiga and the geoRAM clone GRAM/512D. We also developed the second generation CGA2RGB with improved signal integrity and MACSIMM with better mechanical compatibility and resolved the issues we were experiencing during the validation of the GRAM/512S.

Charity
