:cool: Hi,

I recently bought an IMSAI 8080 on eBay. It almost works. I need to know how to address the following S-100 buss RAM cards:

IMSAI RAM 4A rev2

IMSAI RAM 4A rev3

Seattle Computer Products 16K RAM Serial 3736

Vector Graphices 8K RAM card


------------
Actually, why isn't there a chart posted in museums about dip switch settings on all cards? Geeze, this should be easy to look-up by now.

I'll post any chart info I can test on my website as I've already posted all the other doc's 'n programs etc... I've collected:

Each card manufacturer did things however they felt like.

http://www.s100-manuals.com/Harte-manuals/


Just go to that URL and start downloading documentation PDFs for the various cards.

So, there already is a "museum" of sorts.

Howard has a pretty nice archive. His is usually where I start when looking for manuals for boards that I acquire that have no paperwork.

Just as an aside, what I like to do is keep a binder with copies of the switch settings page from the respective hardware manual. Then, I can write all of my configuration information right on that page, and the binder keeps everything organized for each of my machines.

Hi wperko,

Well I had a look at your collection ..

I would make a small suggestion . Dont scan to .jpg as the files you produce are single pages and huge. You should scan directly to .PDF format which is almost the standard in this area I would say. Many scanners (my HP and Canon for sure) scan directly into .pdf format.

Kind regards, marcus b.

If all else fails, there's always Dr. S-100:
