Looking for Documentation on Old Hardware

Started by Jack Klein November 23, 2007
I'm looking for whatever documentation I can get my hands on,
electronically or paper, on a few very old technologies.  Old enough
that I can't seem to find much on the web.

Specifically, I could use schematics, manuals, bus timing, and just
about any other information on the following:

   Multibus 1 (general, timing, power, etc.)

   Intel SBC 80/10 (sometimes known as SBC 80/10A)

   Intel SBC 80/10B

If anyone has any links to electronic information, or has anything
electronic they want to email me (the address is real), please let me
know.

If anybody has any old hard copy stuff laying around that they're
interested in getting rid of, let me know and I'm sure I can cover
shipping.

TIA

Please, if you find it, consider scanning it and posting the images (or a PDF if you'd care to build it); this would benefit a lot of folks. Regards, Michael

I have an old MBus-I manual in the garage somewhere. If wanted, I can hunt it out.

Based on the number of times that I have been able to help queries like this, it seems I have quite a good selection of old manuals etc. (much to my wife's chagrin), just ask if you need more

I should be able to help out to some degree. All this stuff is at home and I need to see what format it is in- old Intel manuals could be unstapled and I could try and get it scanned, but some of the information is in books and may be more painful in getting it scanned or copied. Watch for a message on the weekend. -Aubrey

Did you find this one: http://entrac.iaea.org/I-and-C/TM_VTT_2005_11/IAEA_presentations/051122_Tuesday/IAEA_presentation_Ji.pdf It's a presentation but nvertheless.

Maybe this site has something you are looking for: http://bitsavers.org

OK Here we go- I have 1. IEEE Std 796-1983 (Multibus Standard) 2. IEEE Proposed Microcomputer System Bus Standard - P796 Bus (an Intel publication, dated 1980) 3. Multibus Data Book including descriptions of Multibus 1, iSBX, iLBX and MULTICHANNEL (an Intel publication dated 1983) I also have specifications of the iSBX and iLBX as separate documents. 4.Guide to Configuring Multibus Based Systems. (Published by Intel 1982) 5. iSBC 80/10 and iSBC 80/10A Single Board Computer Hardware Reference manual dated 1979. I see that Bitsavers has the 1976 version of 5. without the /A, if that is sufficent, please let me know. Getting them into a scanned form may take some time. I will try and get our assistant to try and scan these in. We are having some trouble persuading our scanner to do multiple double sided pages, so I may have to convert it to single pages (the SBC document that is). The others are books but are of a manageable size. Unless you prefer otherwise I will e-mail them to the address I found on your web-site. -Aubrey

May I also get these when they are ready (msg _at_ cybertheque _dot_ org)? It would be much appreciated. Regards, Michael

Sure thing. -Aubrey
