Ivory Tower Collections 7800 UAV Mount & Maria fix

We are now offering the 7800 mounting board designed by Ivory Tower Collections!  This not only will allow you to easily install a UAV in your Atari 7800, but it also includes a CD4050 chip to correct for color errors on some 7800 Maria chips! ALSO, it has a very convenient pad to draw AUDIO out.  VERY nice!

We offer them as a combo kit and as a stand alone. If you buy the stand alone version, YOU MUST PURCHASE the UAV (Basic) separately. 

$54.99                   Combo version.  This combines a "Basic UAV" and a 7800 mount in one purchase.  You also save a few dollars. You will still need to solder them together.

$24.99                   Stand Alone  version.  This version has been fully assembled and is ready to be paired to a UAV Basic version.

Atari 7800 Ultimate Atari Video board (UAV)

Now shipping

These boards were developed by Bryan Edewaard and sold by him for a long time.  He has now sold the rights for the rev. D version to The Brewing Academy and we are producing them for all machines.  What does it do? 

  1. Has an on-board regulator to create a clean video power source.
  2. Has a 3-channel video amplifier designed for 75 ohm loads.
  3. Has a pixel re-clocking circuit to remove skew and better align the 4 luminance signals into a perfect pixel edge.
  4. Has a carefully designed chroma-shaping circuit.
  5. an adjustable pot on the board which controls the phase between the chroma and luma signals. A nice side-effect of this that you can change the artifact colors. There's also a jumper to invert the chroma which swaps the positions of the artifact colors.

You will require RCA and/or S-Video jacks to fully complete this installation.  You may purchaser them here:

This board in available in two configurations:

$29.99            NO MANUAL-BASIC This version is for those that either have a manual already OR know how to install it already.  Although we do keep a digital copy here, they are not always up to date.  This is generally for international customers that want to make sure they are under the 8 ounce (225 grams) limit for the lowest USPS shipping rate.  Everybody else starts at a pound (450 grams).

$34.99             Basic - A basic version that must be wired in (missing the pin-headers and green terminal strip

If you need a digital version of the manual: http://www.thebrewingacademy.net/UAV_manuals.zip

NOTA BENE: This involves soldering AND some ability to read a schematic and/or discern how to install it in machines that there are not explicit instructions for.  If you cannot do this, either purchase installation from us, find a professional installer, or do not purchase the upgrade.  As we state in the manual, which is ALWAYS available for a free download PRIOR to purchase, 

This manual is a beginning at a collection of all of installation materials created by Bryan and many other AtariAge users over the years on how to install a UAV into an Atari 400/800/XL/XE/XEL/XLD machine (shortened hereafter as “A8 machines”) or Atari 2600s, 5200s, & 7800s!
