I was very fortunate to get this vintage computer from my friend Eric. This Acorn Archimedes A3010 was produced in 1992 by Acorn Computers and was based upon an ARM250 RISC microprocessor. Right away I proceeded to connect the computer to see if it still was in a working condition.
To finish up the cabinet we will place a marquee sign and connect the LEDs buttons on the control panel. In the end we will also add a protective plexiglass sheet in front of the screen.
It is time to close the opening on the back of our cabinet and add a cooling fan. A while back we cut out a panel that will function as the back door and predrilled some holes to attach the hinge. We can now finish that task.
As doctor Emmett Brown "Doc" in the movie Back To The Future stated: "Marty, I'm sorry, but the only power source capable of generating 1.21 gigawatts of electricity is a bolt of lightning". Fortunately we will not need as much power for our arcade cabinet and a 12 Volt, 2.1 Ampere power supply will be more than enough.
