Item details

This is the assembled and tested version of the Altairduino.

The Altairduino is a cycle-accurate reproduction of the 1975 Altair 8800 computer. It is powered by the Arduino Due micro-controller. It reproduces the operation of the original Altair in almost every way, and includes many built-in demonstration programs so you can easily show off your historical recreation. You will also receive a Micro SD card loaded with 1970's software to emulate a floppy disk or hard disk system with CP/M or Altair DOS.

Your Altairduino will come with a spiral bound printed operation manual.

As seen in IEEE Spectrum magazine, Tech Crunch, Digital Trends, Boing Boing, CBC Radio (Canada), Programmez! magazine (France).
