5553New pcb design for S-100 prototype board available
- Jun 2, 2007I've been working on a pcb design for a S-100 prototype board. I noticed
a few people on the forums asking about this. I decided to make this
since this is a big hobby of mine too. I based this design on a old
prototype board I kept back from the S-100 days. It's made by Electronic
Here's a link to the picture
There were several different styles made before--each with their own
advantages. This prototype board(in pic) has the rows in a vertical
pattern to allow 300mil and 600mil DIP packages. It also accommodates 2
voltage regulators. Then there were some which only had a grid of solder
pads to allow any arrangement of 300mil and 600mil DIP packages.
I like to ask everyone what their preference might be in the arrangement
of the solder pads, eg: vertical rows, horizontal rows, grid, etc. If I
get enough feedback, I can include 2 different styles. It's not much
work to alter the design. I have a panel setup to include 2 pcb designs
at the moment, and it can be any 2 kinds of S-100 designs. In the
future, I like to setup a bigger panel to include several more S-100
Since this is mainly a hobby for me, I thought I might help out and
offer this service. I'm designing this from my home workshop and intend
to make this an affordable hobby. In case anyone is interested, with
enough orders(minimum 30) then I can offer these for only $15 each.
please send any feedback.
