System/1 Build Log

An ongoing chronology of System/1's construction, and any other related musings.

5th January, 2015 - Time to write about this thing!

As mentioned in the introduction, System/1 is a project that I've been contemplating for quite some time even though I've only started building it relatively recently. This means I have occasionally talked about it with various people, and sometimes they ask for more details — so it's about time I started gathering some together for anybody who's interested!

I had intended to use some of the Christmas / New Year break to test out the memory interface board I built in December, but between an ill-fated attempt to clean flux residue off the board and spending a few days playing around with SDR reception of NOAA APT satellite imagery I didn't quite get around to it. So I figured now is as good a time as any to put together some basic web pages, and to use the Foldio my brother gave me for Christmas to try and take some nice pictures to go with them. As you might be able to tell from the Register File page, the latter is somewhat of a work in progress, but the other boards are looking better for when I get around to writing them up.

So anyway, here we are — better late than never — with the System/1 web site. I hope it provides some insight into the project. Enjoy!
