I got a small Intel 8088A CPU board for about $3 at an electronics surplus store. It has a 2*16 LCD, some pins on the bottom, and a 9v battery. It's missing a chip, and it's from 1989(This particular one is 1991 I believe). Does anyone know what it is?
Well, the TC5565APL is static RAM, and next to it is the blank, so that probably was ROM, or "maybe" more RAM, but without a company printed on the board somewhere, or accessible code on board which might give an idea as to usage, I'd say you got about $3-$5 worth of good embedded design parts, in the chips and LCD display!
P.S. IS there a company or LOGO printed on the board? That might tell us a little more about what this controller does/did???
Oops, sorry, it is an M81C55-5.
The board says
Houston, Texas USA
I only found an owner and location, and the amount of time it took probably qualifies me as a stalker.
I did ask this on another website, but I don't know if the answer is correct or not. I would like a second opinion.
