If you are handy with a soldering iron and don’t want to wait for your OSSC 1.6, why not have a go at building your own? DIY kits for the newest revision of the Open Source Scan Converter are now available. Just as before, there are two kits you can purchase. The bare bones kit contains the case and PCB, while the advanced kit contains a few other components that are difficult to source, such as a pre-programmed firmware chip and the correct (we promise this time) Cyclone 4 FPGA chip.
Stock of the barebones kit is plentiful but the advanced kit is low stock due to some component shortages. Our suppliers assure us that more components are on the way however.
Remember that neither kit contains all the components you will require and that the other more common components should be sourced from your favourite local supplier. See the OSSC Wiki for more information on building DIY kits and sourcing components.
