Building a ferrite core memory, part 1

Building a ferrite core memory, part 1

A while ago I ordered some ferrite cores from Bulgaria in order to build a vintage memory out of them. Yesterday I managed to build a one-bit memory by following what Wayne has done.

Writing 1,0,0 to memory which was in state 0. Enable pulses in yellow, sense line in cyan.

Now that I have an understanding of the technology and the characteristics of the cores I have I will continue to build a 32-bit version in the form factor of an Arduino shield (my own twist of this project).
