I have to finish the cable that will hook between the Xerox Alto and my emulator, verify all the wiring and function on the emulator daughter card, then I will be ready to haul this over and use it with our Alto.
|Cable that attaches to Alto disk controller card|
|Other cable end, after ground plane peeled off, before connector attached|
|Daughter card to do level translations and terminate the cable|
By dinnertime, the connector was installed on the cable and checked out. All that remained was to trace each signal line between the IDC connector and support chips, then each line between the FPGA input connector and the chips.
