Things are tough right now ...

They're tough for everyone :( But when coronavirus hit here in the UK, the museum had to close its doors to the public, and we lost practically all our income overnight.

Please Donate Via Just GivingNo visitors, no workshops, no events, no school visits... no income. We know that things are tough for everyone right now, but if you can afford to help us through these tough times please donate what you can.

Stay safe, stay at home! There's over 36,000 exhibits here! That should keep you occupied for a bit - get searching!

ATPL Sidewise - Sideways ROM/RAM Board

The ATPL (Advanced Technology Products Limited) Sidewise board provides an expansion of the Sideways ROM facility of the BBC Microcomputer, increasing support from four devices up to the maximum of sixteen supported by the OS. The socket for ROM number 15 has been split into two 8K sockets to allow use of 8K byte CMOS RAM chips and therefore provides support from up to 16K of Sideways RAM. There was an option to have the RAM battery backed so the images were retained when the machine was powered off.

Date : 1983

Manufacturer : ATPL

Format : ROM/RAM Board

This exhibit has a reference ID of CH24072. Please quote this reference ID in any communication with the Centre for Computing History.
