My goal has been to get a basic set of SCELBI 8H PCBs laid out and fabricated by the end 2012. I'm not sure about having the boards in hand by the end of the year, but the layouts are starting to approach final form. There is still a lot of checking and cross checking to do, but the changes I'm making now are really minor tweaks.

Thinking ahead, I also acquired enough 2102s for a full SCELBI 8B, which I'll be building after the 8H is done. That is another 96 chips. Earlier this week I ordered a small batch 8008s, enough to supply one to everyone who wants a SCELBI board set. Chip prices and availability are much better than I originally expected, which enabled these fairly large purchases. When I started this, I never thought that I would be able to afford all the SRAM needed to fully populate a SCELBI with memory. One tip, when it comes to these particular parts, I would stay away from ebay, as ebay prices for these parts seem out of whack. I can provide suggestions for those of you that are looking for these parts.

The stock certificate is signed by both Nat Wadsworth and Robert Findley. I have framed those two items and put on display in my den.
