The Protoboard Mini-Altair

Posted March 11, 2012 by Chris

“A retro-style computer that functions like the Altair 8800 and can run original, unmodified software. The simplest Altair configuration that could run 4k BASIC was the 8080A CPU board, at least 4K of RAM, and a serial IO interface. The 6850 UART was used in the 88-2SIO serial interface boards. This project has evolved over time, resulting in a series of different versions.”
