PIP 2650 self construction computer
Type: Homecomputer <<< >>> ^^^
Technology: PIP 2650 microprocessor
Preis: Blood, Sweat and Tears
In 1984, the "Ravensburger Taschenbuchverlag" published a book with
the instructions for a self-construction computer. This computer was
equipped with the already in those times very exotic PIP 2650
by the Signetics company. This microprocessor was used quite often for
video games, also one of the first self-construction computer projects
in the "Elektor" magazine used it.
The "Do-It-Yourself-Homecomputer" had to be self-constructed from the
ground up, inclusively all circuit boards. At a jumble sale, I really
found a self-made exemplar. From the circuit boards to the cables,
everything is made "with love".
