Hi There,

I know that folks have been looking for it in the past.

With help from other HP Series 80 fans I finally finished a
small reverse engineering project to obtain the complete
schematics for the HP 82929A Programmable ROM Drawer.

As you may know this module lets you add to a Series 80
personal computer images of expansion ROMs in a pair of

I've been always a big fan of the HP-85 and I recently
started some projects related to it.

Schematics for the HP 82929A and information about current
and future projects can be found at:

Thanks John Shadbolt and Everett Kaser for your kind help.

Nice work.


Thanks Jorge,

Well done for a superb start on the prog ROM project, I'm looking forward to your next great idea.

Now, you still need a good name for your project (I'm thinking of Clonix41 here), so if any forum members would like to make some suggestions....


Hi Rik, John,

thanks for your comments and John many thanks again for your help.

While testing the clone version of the board I found a mistake
on the schematic I put together, the Chip Select lines for the
EEPROMs were permuted.

I updated the pdf file and the correct version is already on-line.

Also I fixed few things on the first version of a clone board
based with TTL and CMOS parts and now is under testing but
everything looks good.

The whole project is available here.

I'll start working on the microcontroller based version.

Stay tuned
