  • Circuit Specialists
    You will be given a board, on loan, that was manufactured through circuit specialists. Some students like this course so much that they end up wanting to purchase their own board. These can take a long time (6 months to a year) to get manufactured, so they need to be ordered well before the time they're needed.

    This is a model UP-604A.

    16-bit solderless breadboard (also works on 8-bit bus). The board plugs directly into the 16-bit ISA bus slot of an IBM compatible PC. All of the AT bus signals are connected to the board. The board also has an External DB25 F connector.
