I blasted off an email with a link to the picture to Bil Herd. (I forgot to send the email thread with details of the chips.) This is what his reply was..... "Oww. your making my brain hurt. At first I thought it was a C64CR type thing but this looks like a member of the TED family, probably a C16. It has the standard joystick ports so its one of the later strange things like the C16 that magically appeared. The two resistors on the chip mark it as a TED where the test mode pins were higher impedance than predicted by the chip designers and a strong electric field would freeze the counters. The diodes near the keyboard connector also make it a TED, though there is a chip missing from my last rev of it, this may be a non-production board (in fact none with the resistors would have made the airwaves). Since there are only two chips that look like memory, it is probably 16Mb. See you at VCF. Hey Haynie, Russell, Ryan: This thing look familiar?" -----Original Message----- From: email@example.com [mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org] On Behalf Of B.

It only has 14 chips, named as following: <snip> I have never seen anything like it. ...a prototype IMHO. It could also be an internal shop hack/experiment. I uploaded some hi-res pics of a c-116 motherboard for comparison. http://www.vintagecomputer.net/commodore/c116/ I saw another here: http://mo5.com/commun/images/ordinateurs/commodore/F_cmc116.jpg Bill Message was sent through the cbm-hackers mailing list Message was sent through the cbm-hackers mailing list
