The purpose of PL8 on the Acorn Atom

Postby John Ferguson » Wed Nov 08, 2017 4:25 pm

I would like to know the purpose of PL8 which is accessed on the reverse of the Atom’s circuit board.

It is not shown on the circuit diagram except for link 3 which leads to PL8. Maybe some additional hardware was intended.

Please can I have some comments.

The econet interface was mounted on PL8.
