National Semi SC/MP Test Board
National Semiconductor released the SC/MP (aka the SCAMP or ISP-8A-500) in 1974 as a low cost PMOS 8-bit processor. Later the design was moved to an NMOS process resulting in higher clock speeds and simpler power supply requirements. This version was known as the SC/MP II or the ISP-8A-600. It was used well into the 1980’s.
This test board is designed to test with the PMOS or the NMOS versions of this chip. It has power supplies and clocking for both the PMOS and NMOS versions and requires only the slide of a switch to change between them.
I have a couple in stock, $94.95 with FREE shipping.

MCS-80 testboard with included Tungsram 8080APC processor
The CPU Shack is excited to now offer MCS-80 test boards for sale and shipping now. These boards are intended to test Intel 8080A processors as well as their many compatible second sources and clones (such as AMD, NEC, Toshiba, and many more!
Each board runs off of a min-USB connector making it very easy to use. The 8080 processor is inserted into an easy to use ZIF socket making testing many different CPUs a snap. Included with each board is a working Tungsram 8080APC processor, an Intel copy made in Hungary.
Head on over to the MCS-80 page to buy yours today!
