6502 groove tonight I determined which RAM was bad on my OSI
Challenger 1P (which is the OSI 600 SBC with a case), now I have 8K
to play with. I am going to try to tackle cassette storage
next. I have the thing completely taken apart with the 600 board
on it's side so that I can test voltages and such. Why they made it
so that you had to completely disassemble the system to do any work
is beyond me, but so be it. Also happy that I had 4 4116 chips to
use as replacement RAM
I have taken 30 minutes away to let the system completely sit idel,
then hopefully the same 8K will report upon my return...I will post pics soon,
Not sure if I mentioned before but I have already posted pics for the
Rockwell AIM 65 and Synertek VIM-1 on my site, and a little on the Challenger.
Now that my work area has been completely reorganized it's so much
easier to grab stuff, make cables, etc. I have been able to improve
my productivity a lot. I sorted every chip, every connector, all of
the cables, boards, everything by make and model. If you're ever in
the area stop by.
