Does anyone have a high speed
modern CPU that could take on a long term PCB trace
It could be a Windows machine,
Linux, or any other operating system which can run a
recent Java VM.
The board is the S-100 80386 SRAM V3 board (32MB).
It uses SMT chips to jam on a huge amount of SRAM
however the trace routing is extremely complex.
The board needs many weeks or even months in a fast
trace router job.
All it needs is to run
uninterrupted. Check on it every day or two and
save the progress as you go.
The PCB trace optimizer is
written in Java and available on line here:
It is a single threaded
application so it will not eat the entire CPU
processing budget on a modern multicore computer.
However it will dominate a single
core of a multicore CPU and several hundred
megabytes of RAM.
If you have a machine you think
would qualify and are willing to take on the job
please let me know.
Thanks and have a nice day!
