About me and
to all, my name is Peter and I am the owner of this website and
collection. My passion is to save old chips and CPUs. I love them and I
want to share this great parts with you all. So I decided to make this
online-museum with high quality pictures of all cpus, chips and other
nice stuff of my collection. These museum is for all collectors and
people interested in vintage
chips! The tutorials in this section should help people who are at the
beginning of their collection and not so experienced in this area.
We, "the old foxes" of collectors tried many ways to handle chips
perfectly. Cleaning, straight up bent pins,
opening the die core.. etc. I killed a lot of chips, and some of them
were really really rare!!
I don't want the same to happen to other collectors, and for this reason
I want to share my know-how with you.
So maybe some of you will ask : where did you get all this
Well, there are many ways to find old chips. The easiest way is to
buy your chips on EBay, but this is often a very expensive way! I
must admit that I also buy many cpus on EBay, but I prefer to
search for them on the
garbage. Anyway, finding a 4004 cpu or something that is like making
One of my jackpots is a 8008 processor board from the early 70's
I found on the garbage!!
So you can see, searching searching searching..... and you will find one
But in future it will be more difficult to find rare parts from the
70´s. I think at least 90% were destroyed or recycled.
So much important is this Museum, to keep the history of these
great old cpus alive and chips who are the pioneers for the beginning of a great
future with computers and virtual reality.
So you have any old chips or cpus at home, and you don't know what
to do with them?
I am always looking forward to every cpu-donation. I have to thank by
that way all donators from the past!
Here some examples of stuff which I saved from the scrap:
