Phoebe PCB

Postby retroclinic » Sun Jul 15, 2012 4:53 pm

Paid a visit to the TNMOC at Bletchley today, and they've got a Phoebe case, with the original PCB inside. I didn't know any of the PCBs were actually made, just the cases.

Shame there has been the usual battery damage around the CMOS area, I advised Chris to get that old battery out ASAP.

There were quite a few motherboards with FPGA based IOMD2 chips, and two motherboards with the real final silicon IOMD2.

That's one of the two, and I really hope it's not trashed due to battery leakage :(

When I was there I asked if we could fire it up, alas the answer was no :(

Also did they also show you the ARM CO-Pro which was donated as a standard 'cheese wedge'

Thanks for posting that Mark - that's great to see!

I've gotta ask - do you know what became of the other one?
