I took the first tiny step into assembling my N8VEM SBC this morning - soldered two carbon composition 1K resistors into the board. Kind of funny - these two resistors were second sourced from Allied Electronics; Digi-Key was out of stock and wasn’t going to get more until something like next January. Anyway, they arrived first so I stuck them in.
Hopefully the rest of the parts from Digi-Key and Jameco arrive soon so I can really tear into it - I’m chomping on the bit! Once the SBC is completed and verified working, I’ll start ordering parts for the ECB bus and bus monitor boards.
