    As a separate project we should determine why the blower motors are going bad. I have three of them where the internal connection between the start coil (black), run coil (blue) and green wire has...

    Yesterday we wired the DC power to the TC02 DECtape controller (thanks Charles Lasner) and the two TU55 DECtape drives that we recently installed in the PDP-9 I/O cabinet. We were not sure that the...

    it is an interprocessor buffer to interconnect two PDP-8 systems, or maybe your PDP-9 and a PDP-8.

    You need to find the 08-H8PA-D PDP-8 DB08 Interprocessor Data Buffer Maintenance Manual

    Charles modified the handler so it would run on the RICM PDP-12, so it should run on your 8/I.

    I believe that Kyle has a copy of the modifications. If not, I can send him the modified source.

    I have an early revision EAE board set that I need to modify to work in my newer 8/e, so I could also use a more readable set of prints.

    The PDP-9 that I am working on has lots of 6-pin rectifier modules. They contain 4x diodes with 4x pins for the diodes, and 2x pins for a common anode & cathode connection for pairs of diodes.

    I didn't keep any of the 4JS2 source tapes or manuals. We ran a DPS8/70. Nice machine. Wish I kept pictures of the datacenter.

    Stanford found that 80% of the failures in their PDP-9 were in the Control Memory. They made a replacement for the G920 module using toroids that proved to be much more reliable.

    Very simple test. On the G920 there are 64 current steering diodes on each end of the FlipChip. The drivers connect one end to ground and the other end to -15V. There are some pull-ups and a small...

    We finally found the problem with the PDP-9. One of the diodes on the G920 Control Memory board had a voltage drop of 1.1V where it should have been about 0.65V. This caused the current flowing...

    Well, the PDP-9 at the RICM is not running again. We had a problem where the JMP instruction would not work, but everything else did. We traced it to the PCI (Program Counter In) microcode bit not...

    Charles Lasner modified the serialdisk handler so it doesn't use the BSW instruction. We also run it on the PDP-12.

    Interesting. We have an RX8E on the PDP-12 at the RICM, and it works OK. No BSW on the PDP-12 because it is really an 8/I.

    There should be two drivers, one that is RX01 only and one that is RX01/RX02 capable.
    You might even find support for the mythical RX03.

    The RX8-E diskette controller for the RX01/RX02 diskette is a polled device. OS/8 can boot and run from it on an 8k machine.

    Theoretically you could connect a DW8E-PC Omnibus Expansion Chassis to...

    I am not sure what their current status is. They moved from a small private building into a large building, and then had problems with the building.
