Got the backbones too

A project log for Discrete YASEP

a 16-bits YASEP computer (mostly) made of DIP/SOIC chips like in the 70s and 80s... with 2010's twists!

After Progress, at last !, I went looking for "ribs" (or "fishbones") or the backbone of the system.

I found extra-long pins on eBay in sufficient quantities, smaller than what I have in stock but still enough to stack 5 pages. It should be enough for the first implementations...

The main PCB could serve as P1A/P1B... or something else requiring a rigid/solid base, connectors etc. so that makes 6 pages.

I received samples from Würth Elektronik !

Thanks to the cool rep, we found a reference that is longer than the previous ones, almost 40mm (so the above picture is a reminder for the reference for a next order)

I might have also found very interesting prototype boards that can be slightly bent...
