Winner, Name that Ware July 2019

via Hacking – bunnie's blog

The ware for July 2019 was an Adtek aISA-P21, 16 input, 16 output isolated parallel I/O board. I really do admire how clean, crisp and orderly the board layout is on this one. It definitely bears several hallmarks of a Japanese design aesthetic, from the style of the SOICs to the font choice to the general organization and tidiness of the board assembly.

Congrats to Adam for nailing it, email me for your prize! I’d love to know more about how you knew what it was — had you encountered the board before? Or just a lot of sleuthing through the Internet. Either way, I didn’t expect anyone to get this one down to the exact make and model.

ISA, I say! Back in the day when all it took was a couple 7400 series chips to talk to a computer…now we use a small computer just to properly negotiate power before talking for real over standards like USB-C.

Thanks to Nava for contributing this ware, found at Akihabalast, “Akihabara final waste disposal site!”.
