Re: [N8VEM-S100:729] S-100 board PCBs waiting list

Hi John,

It would be handy (reduce number of BIOS's..) if such a board were software compatible
with your 8086 board.

Hi Everybody, I’m thinking of doing an 8088 CPU board as a stepping stone for people going from a Z80 to 8086 board. They have 90% the same circuit but of course would work with “old RAM/ROM boards/ports” and make it easier for people to make the transition into the 16 bit world. Clearly to switch over to 8086 you would later need the 8086 board, and 8086 CPU (and 16 bit RAM), that’s about it. You could use all the other 8088 board chips.
Would there be an interest?

Hi!  Attached is the S-100 board PCBs waiting list. 
Please review and send me additions and/or corrections.
My plan is to get the S-100 MS DOS Support board PCBs next, then reorder the S-100 IDE board PCBs, and then the S-100 ZFDC PCBs.
Next would be the S-100 backplane PCBs and we’ll see how things are once those go through.
Thanks and have a nice day!
