This is the first run of boards for the G80-S Micro Computer. There were two minor issues with these boards: First is that the silkscreen is slightly oversized, causing an overlap on the top side of the board. Second is that SIO/DART IEI line was left disconnected, and will require a resistor to VCC if Z80 SIO/DART interrupts are desired. However, if interrupts from the SIO are not desired, then this is not a problem. Just a note, G-Monitor v0.25b does not use interrupts from the SIO/DART. These boards come with the resistors/capacitors when available. You might check availability before purchasing.
In order to move these boards, they have been discounted to $8.
NOTE: You will need to either have a programmer capable of programming the GAL22V10 PLD or you will need to purchase the option that includes the PLD. Without this PLD you will not be able to use this computer.
