Altair 8800 Emulator Kit
Announcing an all-new version 2.0 Altair-Duino!
I’ve done away with the discrete resistors and capacitors for each LED and have replaced them with a set of Darlington transistor arrays and resistor arrays. Also standard with the kit is a VT100 emulator (with VGA and USB keyboard support), DE9 serial connection, audio connection emulating a Processor Technology Music System card, and SD card slot for floppy drive/hard drive emulation.
I have also added support for David Hansel’s bus which enables the use of expansions cards. You can include the extra components needed for the use of expansions cards (and a rear panel for additional ports) by selecting that option. You can read more about the construction and use of expansion cards here:
The kit includes an acrylic case and screen printed laser cut face plate.
This is a beginner to intermediate kit for people with experience soldering. It can be built in approximately 4-5 hours. Please read the Build Instructions to familiarize yourself with the construction of the kit, and don’t be afraid to visit the forum with questions.
