Systems

NORD-1 Series Boards

(Main article NORD-1 boards)

There is a lot of different boards used in the NORD-1 computer. Most are numbered with a three digit code starting at 101 and at least going up to 504. The NORD-1 was one of the first computers to be constructed of integrated circuits instead of transistors. Almost all of the boards are built with the 74-series IC:s.

NORD-10 Series Boards

This is a list of boards used in the NORD-10 series computers based on the print number on the circuit board.

NORD-50 Series Boards

(Main article NORD-50 boards)

The NORD-50 CPU is made up of three crates with a total of 82 cards. Many of the cards are the same so there are only 26 different cards. The cards are numbered from 1500 to 1532.[18]
