Nice to see people are still interested in the PSA-1 today!
The 27C64 chip is a 64k (8k x 8-bit) EPROM which is not too hard to dump and clone since it cannot be write protected like modern microcontroller internal memories. It's truly old school device (I'd imagine early 90's) with a 68HC processor
Has anybody attempted to dump the EPROM? I have, however for some bytes I get a different result every time. This might be the reason why my SansAmp no longer works, with the EPROM contents decayed over the decades.
If anybody could dump the EPROM of a working SansAmp that would be great! To get you hooked: there is a secret message from the author in the beginning
I have also begun to trace the "boring" digital part. So far it looks like a standard "Expanded Multiplexed Mode" circuit described in the 68HC11 docs. This basically means that the whole program is loaded from the EPROM. The internal flash memory in the 68HC11 is probably only used for user presets.
