73100 fits what frames????

Howdy,
Has anyone tried to put the ESU 73100 in any atlas frames? If so which frames?
I would love for them to fit:
GP40/38-2
GP7/9
GP30.
I had also thought of using the board to put sound into some Kato U30C's. These frames are the dcc ready ones. Will the 73100 work? Or should I just use the hard wired select micro 73800.
I have everything I need coming...resistors,caps, heat shrink tubing, pre wired 0603's..magnet wire. So which chip should I use?
Is there somewhere where I can find the measurements for the contact pads so I can see what the 73100 will fit?
Thanks in advance.
Merry Christmas

I don't think the 73100 is going to work for those engines.  Probably going to have to wait until the GP35's get released and ESU releases a retro board for those.

gp 40 yes it fits,   speakers will be a snug fit 8mmX10mm or 8mmX12mm.    no to the gp7's and 30's.  Have tried it without success.

I too am interested and waiting for the GP7/9 size board to go in my second CF7.
