Using the Monitor
Here are front and back views of the two boards. Click on any
picture for a larger version. In these small versions the
images of the backs have been left-to-right reversed so the
patterns of the solder pads, vias, etc., are aligned with
the components above.
When assembled, the 20-way ribbon cable seen leaving at the top right of the Keyboard is led between the two boards and connects to the Microcomputer board at top left.
Footnote: All the photographs on this site (as opposed to the scanned images) were taken with a Canon G1 digital camera. In order to achieve maximum resolution under poor lighting, close-ups using the macro mode were used – hence the barrel distortion; apologies for that! Many thanks for Fabio Arpino for post-processsing them to correct some of that.
