Atari 2600 cart

Yet another case of projects that have been stuck to my head for quite some time, I decided to take a step towards Paul Slocum’s awesome Sequencer Kit for the Atari 2600. In order to run the software on real hardware, I needed to make a cart for EPROMs. Given how old this console is (first introduced in 1977), it’s not like the cart is anything complex. So, with the help of some schematics and pictures from the net I drew up a schematic and a board layout and etched/assembled the cart.

I also have a couple of second-hand Atari 2600’s waiting, next up it’s time to modify them a bit.
