µKenbak-1 Assembled & Tested
Only 2 left in stock
As you are probably aware, I have a newly revised µKenbak-1 kit coming out soon. As I prepare for the release of the new kit, I do have to build a few prototypes to get ready. Since I need funding to continue to procure parts for the new kits, I am selling some of the prototypes here.
This kit is a 1:2 size replica and the case was designed using the 55-year-old engineering drawings provided by Bud Industries (the creator of the original “Grand Prix” case used by the original Kenbak-1.) You will receive a fully assembled and tested kit, with a professionally-made printed circuit board, a steel case with CNC’d aluminum ends, and a laser-engraved front panel.
In addition to the original functionality of the Kenbak-1, this kit includes a real time clock module so you can display your kit as a clock with three modes: BCD clock, counting clock, and binary clock. It can also connect to a terminal emulator on your PC via USB to allow you to upload programs rather that having to toggle them in byte-by-byte. The kit can be powered by a USB power supply, or connected to your computer.
You can view the build instructions and operation instructions here.
The kit version will be available soon, with a target date of July.
