ThED – MOS technology TED replacement for Commodore 264 series

EDIT: an update is HERE

INTro

This time it is not a story but rather a piece of news. Willy/Lamers and, we are working on a TED replacement project. As we all know, TED is very often fried in all those precious C16s, C116s, or Plus/4s and there is no replacement. We aim to change it so we’ve started the ThED project.

We already have a working PoC but we still have a lot to do to get it fully working. We will show our PoC at the SillyVenture party which happens to start tomorrow – the 6th of Dec 2019

I will be writing updates on retrohax.net and on the FaceBook fan page so if you are interested in this project, then make sure you are subscribed and follow us on FB 🙂

The ThED will be available through the retrohax.net webshop.

Here are some pics of a working PoC along with an R&D desk 😀

  1. Hopefully the project will be successfull. We need a replacement, keep our C16 alive please 🙂 Thank you.

  2. I would buy this. My Plus 4 owned from new is now sadly behaving oddly and believe I need a new TED.

  3. Very nice! I just picked up a Commodore 16 (well two, a really good condition one with box, then one trashed one for parts) a few weeks ago, that’s in need of repairs. I think the TED on both might still be alright, but if a replacement is needed, it’s good to see something modern is coming up 🙂

    Just curious, I see you’re using HDMI in the proof of concept version, is the replacement going to do analog video like composite and split Y/C too? HDMI will come in handy, but I still prefer the glow of my Commodore 1702 🙂

    1. It is USB and is only a part of a dev kit. The final solution will be a drop-in replacement so you will only have a standard option like in stock computer 🙂
