I did it....and it worked.
After soldering all parts as descriped, I tested the AC/DC adapter and the green LED on the A-ONE lighted.
So everything was ready to insert the ICs.
First step I connected the A-ONE to my Philips portable TV and I saw the ACHATZ intro; a RESET and I was in the working WOZ Monitor.
It was amazing, it worked immediately I did not make a single mistake. I had great fear from this moment before - but it worked!
Second step: Downloading ZTerm for MacOS X v 1.1beta7
Configuration I had from:
I connected my iMacG5 with the USB/RS232 adapter
USB to RS232 adapter from Manhattan purchased by MISCO
Power On: everything worked fine. I inserted the MOONLANDER programm via Terminal and started the program.
After a few trials I was able to land on the moon. Great!
The next steps will be to work with the assembler and perhaps a housing.
Many thanks to Franz Achatz for this excellent kit;
San Bergmans for his website which gave me good support
and special thanks to TomOwad, his book is the base for my theoretical and practical knowledge to build this kit.
Italianapple recommended me the Manhattan adapter; which workes perfect with ZTerm and an iMacG5.
When I surfed around yesterday I saw a new KIMreplica project from VBriel....
(www.brielcomputers.com). A future target!
