I did not get out the four sound card system out on time because of other work. I still plan to finish that project as well as the others mentioned in an earlier blog. Please bear with me.
Ended up just doing just a two card system so far. I did not find the cards I wanted to use out of the parts bin. Anyway there is proof of concept.
Fully populated two old p1 motherboards with 72 pin simms type memory. The motherboards very low profile and have on board vga video and passive heat syncs on the cpus. Bought two low end dc to ac converters. Bought ide to cf adaptors and the compact flash. Started working on the parallel port interfaces for the robotics hardware management. I love the smell of solder in the morning.
Have to get ready for Turkey day dinner. later.
