Tron Kit Update

It’s time for an update for the Tron Kits.

I now have all the parts, excluding 2. The memory chips haven’t arrived but are due any day, I ordered more direct from Microchip as the original supplier quoted me a delivery date sometime in December. I also only have half of the CPU chips that I ordered, it seems my order of 25 cleared out their stock of 12!

I’m attempting to locate alternative, and more reliable, suppliers for the CPU chips as I seem to be using a lot of them these days (GorF, Tron and Zira all use the same main CPU).

I am extremely sorry for the delays, and when I have the CPU chips and memory chips I’ll be accepting orders for this first batch of 25 full kits.

    Please, please can you tell me where you get the cool knobs/pots?
    I’m designing the ALPS 29 0016 Farnell PN : 1191741 in to a new design but I’d love to know where you get your pot/knob solution. It looks like an integrated knob like the Korg Monotron.
    Any info you could give would be really welcome.

    Gerry,

    Thanks the pots are Alps pots – RK09K113, I get them from RS (part num:263-3034 ) as they seem to be the only supplier I can find who has them. If anyone knows of another, please say, I’m getting through 100′s of these a year and as much as RS is a great place to get bits, it is expensive.
