In the center of the roundabout doesn't lurk a tarantula, a minotaur or a www-bugspider but there are standing out - of a black π-perforation [r=1mm] - the anchoring grab-buckets of the AGP-slot residing upon the upper side. The PGA370-Socket motherboard {19.2_x_30.5 [cm]} is equipped with Integrated Circuits that were assembled in the 90ties.

TECHNOLOGIES: surface mount - through-hole

Surface mount technology (SMT) is a method for constructing electronic circuits in which the components (SMC, or Surface Mounted Components) are mounted directly onto the surface of printed circuit boards (PCBs). Electronic devices so made are called surface-mount devices or SMDs. In the industry it has largely replaced the through-hole technology construction method of fitting components with wire leads into holes in the circuit board.

An SMT component is usually smaller than its through-hole counterpart because it has either smaller leads or no leads at all. It may have short pins or leads of various styles, flat contacts, a matrix of solder balls (BGAs), or terminations on the body of the component.


This platform for Pentium III is not wholly obsolete, but its use is today limited to the above specialty applications, having been superseded by Socket 423/478/775 (for Pentium 4 and Core 2 processors). Via is at present still producing Socket 370 processors but committed to migrating their processor line to ball grid array packages.

Perplexing Circuit Board Lines

Despite what appears to be a perplexing mishmash of lines, there's an actual method to this madness. These lines conduct electricity to get the data to the on-chip processor with no interference, thusly unlike traditionally insulated wires, circuit board lines cannot cross each other. - The darkred circles of the photo allow the data signal to safely transfer from one side of the circuit board to the other, and get past any electronic obstacles in its way.


printed circuit board (PCB)

A printed circuit board (PCB) is a circuit board fabricated by densely mounting a plurality of parts on a plate made of phenol resin or epoxy resin and densely forming curtailed circuits on the surface of the plate to connect the respective parts to each other. A printed circuit board is typically produced by alternately stacking a plurality of substrates with conductive circuits formed thereon and prepreg sheets, bonding them under heat and pressure, forming holes to allow electrical parts to be mounted on the insulating plate, and plating them with copper or other metallic materials to provide an electrical connection between the surface and inner layers. Printed circuit boards have a variety of electric or electronic parts soldered to their circuit patterns which are formed by labyrinth-like copper foils, each having electric or electronic parts soldered to lands with their terminals inserted in the terminal holes, which are made in the lands. Printed circuit boards are classified into single-sided PCBs, double-sided PCBs and multi-layer PCBs depending the number of wiring circuit surfaces. A multi-layer PCB provides a plurality of electrically conductive layers separated by insulating dielectric layers. A typical multi-layer PCB includes many layers of copper, with each layer of copper separated by a dielectric material. Multi-layer printed circuit boards are commonly used in electronic devices to connect electronic components such as integrated circuits to one another. Printed circuit boards used in various types of data processing systems (especially in computers) are typically mounted within a plastic or sheet metal housing structure, and are conventionally referred to as motherboards ...

Multimodal imaging reveals consistent role for genes as mediators of circuit structure/function ... In his article, "Neural Connectivity as an Intermediate Phenotype: Brain Networks Under Genetic Control" [doi: 10.1002/hbm.20639] Andreas Meyer-Lindenberg examines the DARPP32, 5HTT and MAOA genes and asks whether their associations with aspects of brain structure/function are in any way consistent across different neuroimaging modalities. Amazingly, the answer seems to be, yes... - dendrite on July 31st 2009

Science Walk - Trivia Game for Science Education


Built with Geoloqi


The intent of this game is to get people to pay attention to the world around them by answering location-based questions related to education and science. Players can sign up to receive questions through SMS as they walk through town. When they answer questions, they get points. Those with the highest scores are listed on a leaderboard. In the future, one will be able to make their own layer of science questions, history or any topic of their choosing, and Geoloqi will allow users to subscribe to that game layer from their phones and/or the web. Players use a GPS Tracker made by Instamapper to play the game. It can run on most phones, including Blackberry, Android, iPhone and Palm. Ideal for both groups and solo adventures.

Fancy Pigeons is a strategy game in which players must selectively breed a flock of pigeons to bypass a series of obstacles. The object of the game is to get as many pigeons as possible through the course, with points awarded for each offspring that clears a challenge. Because players can see the queue of upcoming obstacles, they can choose breeding pairs which will produce offspring with both short- and long-term fitness. Mendelian genetics is faithfully represented, and in order to succeed, the player must maintain genetic variability in the population through heterozygosity while optimizing for a specific phenotype.

Space Feed


A feed of awesome space events based on location.


Why the hack?


Current astronomy sites have complicated design or are overly technical for the casual observer. Typically lat/long is needed to figure out what is available in the night sky. Phones and browsers can take advantage of location and notification services to make the experience easy and passive for the user.


Visible with:


- Naked eye


- Binoculars


- Telescope


Specify distance:


- 5 miles, 15 miles, 25 miles, 50 miles, 100 miles etc.


Types of events:


- Meteor showers


- ISS flyover (transit, i.e. flying in front of the sun/moon)


- Other satellites


- Iridium flares


- Auras


- Planets


- Constellations


- What else is interesting? How do you take a data set and classify an astronomical event "interesting" without human input? Can you?


Visibility considerations:


- Weather


- Light pollution


Nice to Haves:


- Best viewing spots in your area based on weather/altitude/other factors


i.e. I am willing to travel X distance to see Y event. Return: "It's cloudy in San Francisco, go to Mt. Tam to see the Persieds meteor shower."


- Localize measurements based on location or OS language/format.




- Web based (ideal, open) OR


- iPhone app (more possibility? visibility/distribution?)


Data sets:


- ISS tracking data in web format - Created at London Science Hack day (XML file of ISS location):


- TLE data for all satellites -

Android Participatory Exploration


This hack is focused on bringing science payloads onto low cost android based robotics platforms. We have built a low cost spectrograph, started an android app, and hacked a couple of robotic platoforms that would be candidate rovers to host the spectrometer. This hack is part of an ongoing effort at NASA Ames Research Center focused on bringing hands-on robotics and science experience to young students, allowing them to participate in NASA field sceince missions with low cost robotic science platforms. These platforms will in turn help to lower the cost of some NASA missions.

A New P-value Correction in R and Analyst


In this project we implemented Wayne Xu’s recently published multiple testing correction using APIs from the R project and Genedata Analyst. The method mitigates false negatives from microarray analysis of thousands of genes simultaneously, and Analyst makes for easy visualization and selection of results.
