KPA100 Initial Test
I wound most of the toroids and went back to stuffing parts into the KPA100 board. It turned out there wasn't much left to stuff to arrive at Initial Test; it was mostly a matter if installing all the ICs and a few of the back-panel connectors. Here's the test setup, including the modified ribbon cable (and accompanying modified plugs on the K2 controller board and the KPA100 board).
And here's start-up status message ... that was a good feeling! And all voltage tests for Initial Test were well within spec.
