Just a little update for all readers interested in Sharp 1500/1600 PCs: for hacking around with the Sharp Pocket Computers I’m using a self-made breakout board that allows easy access to all 60 pins of the interface connector.
The 60-pin connector is a simple 1.27*2.54 60-pin male header (I’ve bought mine here).
Two LEDs indicate battery or power connection, and on/off state. (In most cases power lights up as soon as the board is attached to a Sharp PC.)

Wow, the missing extension !!!
May i buy 2 ? 😉
Hi Eric, they are not for sale. But I have one set (unpopulated cartridge and breakout board) left. I will send it to you in a few days. — Kai

Hi, can I have the gerber file to make one for me ?
Hi Georges, I’ve shared most of my designs (including the Gerber files) in my Github repository. Usually there’s also a direct link in the blog post to the respective repo.
Best regards, Kai
