An older project is about to make a comeback. The ReActiveMicro No-Slot Clock is currently being tested and a new design being refined.
We’re currently looking for someone with a IIc which has a RAM Card installed. We would like to confirm the height of the No-Slot Clock once installed in the IIc. Please contact Support if you would like to help. However if you have had a No Slot Clock from UM installed previously then it’s possible your ROM socket could have been ‘stretched’ and you may not be able to use the new No-Slot Clock without replacing your socket. It’s recommended to test the socket is still good by removing the ROM from the UM No Slot Clock and reinstalling it on the IIc’s motherboard. Test boot the system and see if there are any issues. Lite taps and bumps on the system’s case will ensure good and consistent contact is being made. If the IIc crashes during these tests, the you may need to have your motherboard socket replaced.
A II/+ version of the No-Slot Clock is also planned for release in 2020.
The new ReActiveMicro No-Slot Clock features lead frame pins. These pins are edge mounted to the PCB and allow the PCB to be used like a module. This emulates perfectly how a standard DIP IC works, which will resolve any socket stretch issues. ReActiveMicro is now the exclusive source for lead frame pins in small quantities. We currently offer stock in USA and Asia.
