Dominique has created an unbelievably nice TAP-28 clone on perf-board. The following pictures show the clone with his descriptions.
I made a copy of your TAP 28. I used a stripboard and I installed the components with some cut tracks.
The TAP28 board, not so pretty than yours, but made from a stripboard.
Some mods were applied :
The TAP28 board is installed directly on a box, used for insulating, power supply and storage...
When I don't need the TAP28, I remove it and put it in the box.
A simple box, larger than the board, with some holes in it.
Two pins insuring a good link with power supply ("Plug and Play" type...).
The intermediate power supply : 5v or 3v3 selectable by switch. It's glued under the cover of the box and brings directly power to the TAP28.
And guess what ? That's OK !
And finally, I tested my TAP28 board with a PIC 16F876... enough for the " Hello World ", simple program blinking the 4 Leds and using the two push buttons, wrote with PicBasicPro and transferred with a PicKit2...
OK, I have to study now more powerful chips, like the 18F series...
I hope that these pictures will be useful for those who want to do and don't know how begin...

Excellent craftsmanship! Nice changes to meet you needs. The "board in a box" with power connections makes a nice dev system. ~ Jon
