AMS 68010 PODS

(1 / 1)

Please be EXTREMELY CAREFUL handling the Applied Microsystems emulation
pods. Right now 3 of our 13 development system are down due to flakey
pods. So far we have been unsuccessful getting them repaired by 
Applied Microsystems. Please avoid hanging them by their cables or 
other abusive behavior. As a matter of operating procedure, please
think of the pods as your gonads when you have to touch a pod.
Apparently the gold pind on the 64-pin connector that plugs into
the 68010 socket on the target PCB are particularly snssitive.
[that should read "gold pins" rather than "gold pind".]
