  • Making a few B&W LAI XY Vector PCBs

    I am going to make PCBs and Monitor adjustment board for the 20" B&W XY LAI Chassis (LAI-KZ-20XYB)

    Pot board is designed

    It will mount on the bracket that holds the heatsink

    Board


    How it will look / mount



    And a copy of this


    Pots board include
    • X Gain
    • Y Gain
    • B Adj
    • Brightness
    • Contrast


    I need 4 or 5 of these

    Pic of the pcb file almost finished


    Let me know if you want one

    Pics of actual prototype

        Parts are ordered for these, this is going ahead

        Anyone else interested in LAI chassis PCBs? or new adjuster pot boards?

              This has been promoted to active. Starting to convert to pcb file ready to make the required Gerber files

              I am about a week into it, nothing too taxing about this one I must say.

                What pots are you using Dez? I have had a bit of trouble finding nice ones that you can easily twiddle without getting zapped.....

                  Hmmm, I have an upright Asteroids that I would like to keep running in good condition for as long as possible, it's fine ATM, but for $30 to help future proof it I think I would buy one of these. I'm assuming it plugs in as a daughter board and takes over from the original adjustment pots?

                  Hmmm, just clicked on the pic, that looks nothing like mine, I don't think mine is a LAI, I got it from Visy who imported it from USA, too tired to research tonight
                  Winter is here and I'm still riding more than gaming, my current goal = 100,000 meters elevation gain for the year - well ahead so far

                    Your's will be Atari, LAI's will have the family logo on the marquee and the sideart

                          Still going on these

                          Starting to add the top layer silk screen, and have decided to add the values of the resistors.

                          The 14" screens had some different values, so I will think of a way to allow for that (Maybe add a key/legend on the board, you can refer to when assembling)



                          I won't be doing a prototype, just a main run, as the tooling cost is high. Might do a run of 10 to 15 of them only, I think
                          Regards

                              Yep, I will still use your creation mate

                              I am working on a proto that uses the HV from an amplifone Colour, and the deflection from the LAI board, so yours is the contender for the job

                              So you could feasibly use a regular colour TV Tube in a BW vector game
