|S4: Ep.12 The walls of Ram's control
room are "decorated" all around with layout diagrams of
electronic circuit boards. They don't really mean much, but they're
there just to look "Technical".
Ep. 43 And here's Patch in Ep. 43 looking over the Mall's alarm
Here's the thing:
The two drawings, this one at the Mall, and the one at Techno HQ are
one and the same.
So the Mall alarm system is based on
Ram's Techno Technology?
The circuit - whatever it is - is very
low tech. It's a real drawing of a real PCB (of something). Single-sided
only, with wire links. Uses leaded components rather than surface
mount. Even uses high wattage resistors and a zener for a "stabilized"
rail. Uses 4000 series CMOS. Really quite "naff". Probably
dates from mid to late 1970's.
