OK, we are now 'officially' gauging worldwide interest in our:
UKVAC motor drive PCBs, compatible with Space Harrier Deluxe and Outrun Deluxe




As you have probably seen in our development thread (please log-in), these are a reproduction of the triac-based motor drive PCB found in the two motorised cabinets.


Key features:

*Replicates the look and form of the original PCB closely in footprint, component layout and track routing.

*Replicates the operation of the original PCB exactly, down to circuit level.

*Dual-pinned sockets with jumpers to allow fitment of modern alternatives to obsolete components:
    ATF22V10 GAL -> PLS153 PAL
    IL420 -> TLP511GA (triac driver)
(The board is supplied with modern components).

*Dual-channel for use in either game. GAL's replicate either 3155160 or 3155160A PAL's via a jumper, to select the correct motor speed.

*Open-source design with schematics and user manual.

Customised 2.54mm pin headers are used in-place of the Amphenol 26 and 34 way I/O connectors as these are obsolete.

This is intended to be a non-profit project for the enthusiasts, so the price will be approx: £80 + postage.
This is £58 for parts & box, £20 for assembly and test and a £2 margin.

Should we make a profit (via bulk buying) after all orders are sent and dev parts covered, we will donate the money to UKVAC.


Shipping costs abroad are yet to be established.

This is a hobbyist, non-commercial project and we do not offer a warranty, although we will do a basic test on each shipped unit and will try to help in the event of any issues.

The board is in prototype testing stage at the moment and we hope to begin shipping the first units by October/November (we will attempt to do first come-first served).

All questions welcome here or on the development thread

So please, spread the word and place your pre-orders here . We will contact you to take payment when we are ready to order the components.

I wont be popular saying this, but I think you could almost double the price. You guys have put a lot effort into this... if there isnt payback you might not complete another project and then everyone loses...

But at that price I am in for two fully assembled please!

Have you advertised on KLOV?

I was thinking the same, it’s certainly underpriced for the effort and value it actually gives to a DLX cab.

I’m sure you won’t have a problem making a few batches at this price point.

I know, if this was a business, it would be madness

But... I consider it an experiment in a group working together and my time is free - it's been fun and the payback is in people appreciating it and enjoying it (and hopefully volunteers for future projects).

It could be an exercise in printing money, but I find it more satisfying to go the other way and deliberately NOT try to make money. Plus £80 eases the pain on anyone who has to add shipping to the distant countries on top of that.
We should also be in for a reasonable surplus if we can get 25 or even 50 orders (seems to be going well so far!!)

The one request/hope is that they're not flipped for profit. I can't imagine anyone on here doing it, but we'll be keeping an eye on that to undercut anyone who tries it .

Having said all that, if assembly and test starts to remove people's will to live, we might have to up the assembly cost a little.

There should be a KLOV thread appearing when my brother gets around to it (as he's on there a bit, living Stateside).

Great price and awesome to see this project come to fruition. A nice bit of UKvac team work.

I would personally try an approach similar to a lot of the vinyl record sellers. Sell the first batch at a nice reasonable rate then pop the price up slightly for the late comers. Also means you have more room to manoeuvre for any eBay flippers.

Hmm, best avoided then - would be messy
I must mention Naoki and tin - my involvement in the PCB routing was minimal and the fact it looks so close to the original was driven by Naoki (and it turned out to be one of the most satisfying aspects).

Bicton - no, sorry, it's different to the Power Drift board (itself something that could be done as a later project as we've got one to copy). Are you still interested in one?

...and I must therefore mention that my work in this was pretty minimal. I learned a lot and contributed a little as I was learning, so maximum props should be going to John and Naoki.

I'd like one, just to be safe in case my original is secretly being eaten by rodents living in my machine.

Thanks!
