The next board to be added to the system - it selects between Address Register and Manual Address entry, and converts the selected address to Row/Column selection in the core memory. Pictured here with 6 partially-complete 2:1 mux modules yet to be installed:

Note that all components get a liberal application of cat hair before installation.
