The HP-1 Digital Designer is a device that I bought from E-bay several years ago an until recently it had not received much love from me if I am honest. If you are not sure what an HP-1 Digital designer is, and I guess there is a fair chance that you wont have encountered one, think super dooper breadboard! A breadboard, function generator, power supply, logic analyser and more built into one workstation.
Mine has clearly seen a hard life, now aged, yellowed and partly functioning. This is the first instalment in its journey back to greatness. While I doubt many of you will be refurbishing one of these, along the way we should see some of the circuits required to build your own workstation.
