Re: [N8VEM-S100:1239] S-100 board reorders


I have a 64K IMS memory board that would probably do the trick for you.

I would be happy to sell it to you. Are you intersted? If so I will send pictures.

I did build that board, but could never get
it to take a deposit from the FP and from
what I remember, there was something about
'every other' address step that was not displaying
the data from memory properly.

It's a complex board and I think my problem is in
the 8/16 bit switching and the fact I truly don't
understand it.

The Eprom portion works. I burned the
'walking lights' program and it runs fine.

I have repaired my S-100 boards and built the
SMB with success.  However, I'm not an engineer.

I'll have to put it in tomorrow to refresh
my memory.

I was looking for a bare bones circuit just
for 64K.  I have one Imsai that I'd like to
sell and it's RAM boards are flaky.

just use the rom/ram board... cheap to build and 64k or more of fast ram

I'm interested in building a simple 64K RAM board for
the same reason. I have two Imsai's, both with
multiple RAM card(s) with many memory chips.

If someone could point me to a schematic, I'd
like to build a few. I know Don Caprio mentioned
earlier this year he had a project on the PBworks
page but I don't know where to find it.

I'd like to look at a few designs.

Hi Andrew,

Cool, thanks! Just a note on what I'm using the first (buffered) prototyping board for....
It's currently being used as a 64K RAM card in my IMSAI. This was done to establish a working system. I'll be replacing this RAM card with the old RAM cards when I test/fix them.
At that point, I'll repurpose this card to be an 8080 CPU, RAM & I/O card for another IMSAI system I'd like to resurrect.
