CoCoEPROMpak is a PCB design for an EPROM-based ROM cartridge for the Tandy/TRS-80 Color Computer. It can accept on 2732, 2764, 27128, 27256 or 27512 EPROM. Board thickness must be 0.062". Gold plating is preferable to avoid contact oxidation. Board is designed to the OSHpark design rules for a 2-layer PCB.

When using 27256 or larger EPROMs, the EPROM is divided into 2-4 16k banks which can be selected with jumper settings. Jumper settings are also important for 27256 and smaller EPROMs in order to apply the correct power and control signals to the EPROM.

4k:

   * Install 2732 at U1
   * JP2, JP3 not used

8k:

   * Install 2764 at U2
   * Set JP2 to 1
   * Set JP3 to 1

16k:

   * Install 27128 at U2
   * Set JP2 to 1
   * Set JP3 to 1

32k:

   * Install 27256 at U2
   * Select 16k bank with JP2
   * Set JP3 to 1

64k:

   * Install 27512 at U2
   * Select 16k banks with JP2 and JP3
