DIGGING deeper into THE APOLLO SATURN V LVDC
[Fran] went all-out with her reverse engineering of the Apollo Saturn V LVDC board. routine visitors will keep in mind that she was showing of the relic early this year when she took the board to her Dentist’s office to X-ray the circuit design. since then she’s been difficult at work trying to figure out exactly how the thing functions utilizing that look inside the board as well as components. When we state ‘hard at work’ we truly mean it. Not only did she check out many different theories that resulted in dead ends, she likewise developed her own version of the circuits to make sure they performed as she theorized. above you can see her version of the NAND/AND gates utilized on the hardware.
We discover her explanation of exactly how the logic gadgets were originally fabricated to be extremely interesting. They started with a ceramic substrate as well as utilized additive processes to type the traces as well as add the gates. We’ve embedded her video explanation after the jump.
