Ferrite Memory Core Project by: Matt G, Galveston, Texas

My first project for the Phase Dock system is prototyping a core memory read/write setup for small ferrite memory cores. I put together a core memory kit earlier, but now using the modularity of Phase Dock to delve into the details.

Lower left is a simple pulse generator, Right of that is a MOSFET bridge to power the cores. The upper breadboard has the 2X2 core setup and sense amplifier. Customizing Phase Dock with 3D printed mountings (banana jacks and BNC connectors) keeps the external interfaces tidy.

I can see that the Phase Dock system will make it much easier and cleaner to incorporate Arduino and Raspberry Pi elements in future projects based on my other interests, which are ham radio and instrumentation.
