Yay! Woo Hoo! Great news! We have S-100 68K CPU running!
Once this project is working maybe we could take another look at the 68360 P1 and/or 68040 SBC?
This is really great news! Please post pictures and notes on the wiki! Let’s get the word out!
Thanks and have a nice day! You’ve already made mine! w00t!
PS, this project has been in work for 2 years+ so I am very happy to see it working.

Subject: Re: [N8VEM-S100:1808] S-100 68K CPU board V3
Thought I would give an update - found the problem with memory - it turns out pin 1 of U2 on the board had a cold solder joint - guess it finally gave out. Reflowed the solder - the ground plane is a pretty big heat sink around pin 1 and can easily get a cold solder joint. Any ways after repairing that and playing with jumpers and switch settings I have 1 Meg of memory working with the S100-68K-V3. I also have the oscillator at 16MHz so the CPU is running at 8MHz and is a buss master. I am using the short S100 mother board from the group so it may have better noise immunity than the 22 slot mother board like you are using. I will do some more testing and want to boost the memory to at least 2 Meg for some experiments. I will get started next on the new monitor and getting data to load from the IDE CF card. Looks like I am on my way to getting CP/M 68K ported. I have a little clean up to do in a couple of areas (upgrade to latest compiler code, etc).
