N8VEM Completed

| No Comments

The N8VEM booted for the first time today! I got the last couple components in from DigiKey, and was able to get it running during lunchtime.

The only thing that isn’t working is the power LED. I probably put it in backwards, and my attempt to reverse it didn’t work out. Not critical though - I can live without it. The computer itself is working great, including my freshly burned EPROM.

Now I need to start on the backplane and bus monitor boards - need to order some more parts!

(Yes, I do have a better power supply arrangement on order - this is just something I cobbled together to test with.)
