Hi! I've received permission from the author of "68000 Microcomputer
Systems Designing and Troubleshooting" to include the S-100 68K CPU board as
part of the N8VEM home brew computing project for educational purposes.
This is a classic text found in many computer science and engineering
courses in the 1980's and 1990's. It is possible some here recall the book
from their own college and/or professional experiences.
As part of that effort, I am capturing the schematic and PCB layout from the
book as closely as possible. The intent is to replicate the authors'
original board. There is a draft schematic and PCB layout on the N8VEM wiki
If anyone is interested in helping with this project please contact me. In
particular, I am looking for volunteers to review the schematic and compare
it against the schematic and PCB layout in the book. Due to the complexity
of this board quality assurance is extremely important. Actually if anyone
has one of these boards or experience with them I would be very interested
in hearing from you.
The plan is to make a limited run of manufactured prototype PCBs to do an
initial build and test of the board. If you are an experienced builder and
interested in participating in the initial build and test please contact me.
The corrections/updates from the prototype board will be incorporated into a
board to be made available for all the N8VEM builders as part of the S-100
Thanks and have a nice day!
