Acorn PET and FIT Test Boards

This item consists of the Acorn Final Inspection Testing system (FIT) and additional Progressive Establishment Testing (PET) memory testing board, plus software, manual, and schematic.

From the manual:

"The Final Inspection Testing system (FIT) is designed to test the BBC machine after it has been fully assembled and just before it is packed and dispatched, whether by a manufacturer or a dealer who has serviced it. As such it therefore requires no connection to the computer other than those readily available. In the case of the Model As this is simply the cassette and video/monitor ports, wheras the B types require a small circuit board with linmks to the 1MHz bus, printer, user I/O, and analogue ports and a plug with links for the RS423 output as well."

Includes two manuals.
