Watford solderless ROM Board and GoSDC?

Post by slx » Fri May 25, 2018 5:06 am

Does the Watford solderless SW ROM board work together with a GoSDC (which I assume would need to go into one of the two slots not covered by the Watford board).

Or does the Watford board ‚lock out‘ the mainboard sockets?

From memory the motherboard sockets become sockets 0,1,2,3 with the ROM board sockets being 4-15. All 16 sockets are "just" standard ROM sockets, so I would expect the GoSDC to work in any of them as long as there is physically enough room to plug it in.
