Oof. It feels like it's going to be years before we really get out from under this.27c322 have almost doubled since my last order. One supplier just refunded me and said they couldn't access their facility due to lockdowns.
Exciting stuff! Looking forward to it!FYI: I'm now in my German HQ and ordered another batch.
I'll have to wait for any taxes/charges before I can confirm the cost, but I'm planning to change the price to Euro.
Edit: I am still waiting for some equipment that was in my luggage, that didn't get loaded in Birmingham. Shouldn't be a problem for anyone here as I can re-buy it if it doesn't arrive.
Yep the 27c322 have gone around double in the last 4 months, also the Euro and AUD have crashed a bit since then so that's made it even worse for non US citizens. But I expect them to double again at some point so I've been buying what I'll need in the future now. Bought quite a few bulk capacitor and resistor books and all that stuff a few months ago.27c322 have almost doubled since my last order.

GAL16V8 has multiple generations and they’re all old and many are obsolete so you’re buying recycled ones. https://www.digikey.com/en/products/detail/microchip-technology/ATF16V8B-15PU/1118926 Is currently produced and cheap and reliable in my experience, use that if your programmer supports it.Guess that means I actually need to learn what I’m doing and buy components! Do I just go buy any old thing with 27c322 or 16v8 GAL in the name, or are there other parameters I need to care about? It looks like 16v8 GAL comes in multiple form factors. And do I need to buy enough to populate every spot on the Fluffy boards, or does it vary by game?
Yes but you’d be programming the 27c322 with an adapter to switch banks. That takes splitting the files and being careful to program the banks in the right order. And a lot of time. Good value if you don’t do this often but I prefer at least having 42pin device support natively. https://www.arcade-projects.com/thr...ammer-for-most-arcade-hobbyists-to-have.4046/
