DCC MiniStationę

The MiniStationę has been improved considerably but still uses the same 18 pin format. A new Station/Booster PCB is now available!
The new 16F628 with twice the memory offers a pin for pin drop-in replacement for the orginal 16F84A. Now you can add 128 speed step, F1-F4 function control, auto-repeat keystroke and up to 123 step of combined route/turnout sequencing just by replacing the chip. Assembly code for the new chip is available free. A pre-programmed 16F628 is also available. Best of all, there is no price increase for the new chip! See the menu below for details on how to build your own.



DCC MiniBoosterę

An efficient and simple to build DCC booster has been designed using the most recent MosFet integrated chip from National Semiconductor«. A double-sided PCB prepared by John Zajdler is also available (see Parts menu). Now you can control up to 4 trains simultaneously, over 120 turnouts and program all your decoders using any one of the 4 NMRA standards at a fraction of the cost of a commercial unit!
