Original Macintosh 512K Logic Board Schematic

Posted on Feb 4, 2014

The following is one of the most rare and special documents here at the DigiBarn, the only known copy of the complete schematic specification of the 512K Macintosh Logic Board. Daniel Kottke co-authored this design which served as the basis for the 64K Macintosh prototypes and then the 128K launch Macintosh in January 1984. This may be the last ma
