Cromemco 8K Bytesaver
The Cromemco Bytesaver could accommodate
eight 2708 UV erasable EPORMS. It typically contained the monitor and system
boot programs for early Cromemco systems.
What was nice about the card was it had
an integral PROM programmer along with a DC to DC power supply to generate the
required 12V programming voltage. They supplied the software as well though the
typical Cromemco Z80 board monitor software had a burn PROM function with this
board. The switch at the top left corner was there to prevent accidental
programming. It was an early Cromemco board so it also came as a kit. It
did not support the S-100 bus Phantom
line for output (to inactivate othere overlapping RAM on the bus).
