Suitable for ECMs with these service numbers

1227808 (the '808) (recommended)

This ECM was used in these applications:

Commodore/Statesman VN/VP All (use with ECM comms board)
N13 Pulsar
LD Astra
JE Camira

Usage
This comms board is installed inside the '808 case to provide a USB port on the side. It should be used in conjunction with high speed code (usually thats 12P on an ECM NVRAM).
To install you will need to solder 3 wires inside the ECM, and drill 3 holes in the case. 2 are for the mounting bolts (supplied) and 1 is for the USB Type B connector to pass through. Instructions are provided with purchase.

Design
These boards are the latest iteration of VL400's successful design. This board can interface with TTL serial (3 wires as in the '808) or ALDL (2 wires for other applications).

In the kit
1x USB Comms board
2x Mounting standoffs
1x Pigtail header, with stripped and tinned ends for easy install
1x USB cable with ferrite bead for noise suppression
1x PDF copy of installation instructions

Beware the clones
PCMHACKING.net products use only genuine components. Our ECM Comms boards use a genuine FTDI chip which works fine with the latest drivers. Clone FTDI chips are in circulation. See here for more information http://hackaday.com/2014/02/19/ft232rl-real-or-fake/

More information
If you need more information about the use of this hardware, click the FAQ button at the top/right of the forums and have a read of the documents available for download there.

Purchasing
ECM USB Comms are $100 each, and $20 for postage and handling. Combined postage is available when purchased with other PCMHACKING.net products.

Hi antus,

Is the tantalum capacitor in the picture loaded the wrong way around? (Remember that unlike the common practice to indicate the negative terminal of electrolytic capacitors with a stripe, tantalum capacitors indicate the positive terminal with a stripe.)

Hi Joe,

Well spotted. Yes it is. This was noted in first testing of the first batch of which I took that photo. I swapped all of them around and re-tested before sale. Nobody received one with that alignment.

Hi Antus,

Thanks for confirming, I was wondering if I was seeing things.

Good you caught this in time!

did you buy it from antus? He emails you the diagram with the purchase, otherwise its not available on the site to download.

just send him a PM and he should sort it.
I'm the director of VSH (Vlad's Spec Holden), because HSV were doing it ass about.
