Same reason we haven't scanned any OSI 420 boards...those are even 2012 based, so even more power consumption per K!

...and looking at the 527 schematics for unrelated reasons tonight, it looks like it wants a wait state! Another mark against using it, eh?

I've added the following reproductions to this week's circuit board order:

* OSI 510C (bottom solder mask version)
* OSI 470B (bottom solder mask, I think Dave added that?)
* OSI 580 8-slot backplane w/ expansion buffers (bottom solder mask, super heavy 3.2mm FR4)

They should arrive in a week or two. The usual pricing, impressively very little has changed over the last few months. No arbitrary price hikes due to decisions made in Washington, DC!

Additionally, I've got GW-OSI-RAM1 kits listed on Tindie now.

Next batch of reproductions will include the OSI 400 board, I've got scans for it already. What else are folks wanting prioritized?

The current order of boards has shipped! Apparently the extra-thick backplanes are so heavy, they get their own DHL box :D

I added some 495 prototyping boards to last week's board run. I forgot how cheap single-sided boards are to run! I should be able to sell those for like $15-20 each.

OSI 495 prototype boards are in, I'll be bringing these and all other OSI reproduction boards with me to VCF Midwest.

That's good news. The backplanes are still in transit I presume?

They're in, but I'm currently in transit :p Had to head out on Sunday for work related stuff, leaving from work stuff directly to Chicago for VCF Midwest. 470B and 510C boards are in, too.
