Greetings-  I want to buy the now obsolete software that was provided by Dontronics in early 2000's  for the DT006 evaluation board.

I still have the DT006 hardware, etc, but lost the software.

I am aware of most of the new software but like the simplicity of that  old software. I have the required Windows operating system.

I will appreciate help in finding a source.

Thanks, Jim.

Not sure exactly what software you are referring to, but I used the wayback machine for the dontronics website....here is some chipblaster software from 2007

Did you try calling Don?  He might be willing to send you a copy on a floppy . 

 

From the looks of this old stuff, I'd suggest an upgrade (& replacing those knife switches).

Really wonder what you are going to do with this. All I see is AT90..... named chips, can not imagine you can still buy those......

Thanks for the reply! Will study all the references.

Chips available on ebay.

I found the software that came with DT006 20 years ago easy to use, not that I think the 90s is the best choice of processors.

I have no specific use in mind. Trying to keep old brain from turning to mush after many years away from Hobby.

That's what happens when you forget to throw both away.  You find the remaining part years later, and it is sheer terror.  surprise​​​​​​​
