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!

Watford Electronics - Eureka 64K

The Eureka 64K Board is an add-on for the BBC model B computer which provides extra memory for programs and data. With Eureka fitted the computer will behave exactly like a normal machine for almost all commands, the only difference is that approximately 58K of memory will be available! You can use any screen mode without affecting the available memory and programs will run at exactly the same speed as normal. The principle of operation is described in the Hardware section and is the subject of a British Patent Application.

Our board is Issue 2, complete with EPROM.

We have a ROM Dump of the EPROM.
