This board pictured above is Intel’s first board product from 1970.  It is a memory board for the UNIVAC!  Intel Memory expansion board for UNIVAC mainframes.  The company’s first board product.

It contains four channels through 4 long 3M made ribbon cables.  After nearly 50 years these ribbon cables feel as new as they day they were made.
