Wire Wrap

I am glad for every day that engineers do not still have to do this.

    We used to make TTL prototypes on wire-wrap boards like these when I worked at Intel and Tandem Computers (1977-1984). The boards at Tandem were 16" x 18" and could hold several hundred chips. We would get our boards "machine wrapped" by supplying a company who had an automated wrapping machine with a net list. Any modifications or corrections were done by hand wrapping. I've completely hand-wrapped several boards by myself for my own projects. They were quite reliable and easy to change.
