VINTAGE 1970 AMPEX 4K X 12-BIT FERRITE CORE MEMORY BOARD FOR DEC PDP-8:
$149.00

Ferrite core memory board made by Ampex for the DEC PDP-8 computer, though I’d presume not working today. This is strictly a display piece.
Some of the smallest ferrite cores I’ve seen (see quarter for scale), comprising 4,096 12-bit words (this was the style of the time, computers had not yet settled in on the multiples-of-8-bits word sizes that dominate today). Date code of November 1970. An interesting historical artifact and conversation starter!
