Heathkit bus is derived from S100 bus with more simple schematics.

The front panel design is like a Altair 8800, but it use octal digital LED instead of 8800 bubble light.

Just like 8800 and IMSAI 8080, people can write program use octal scheme on front penal.

It has a unique internal bus structure and connectors; both are completely unlike S-100.

Still, it's an interesting interesting foray into the world of microcomputers by Heathkit :->.
