MIDWAY ATARI WINNER PONG ARCADE GAME BOARD WORKING

This is a vintage 1973 PONG Video game board made by Midway known as Winner. Midway later became Atari so this board is really a piece of history.

This board is guaranteed to be working. The monitor photo was taken of this actual board operating. The guaranteed working board, the wiring harness and photocopy of the schematic are included. The monitor and power transformer, paddle control pots, and audio amp are not included.

This board is one of the earliest video games ever made back in 1973. It is built with standard common 7400 series TTL logic ICs so it is maintainable indefinitely. T is no micro-computer or ROM to go bad.

This game is for 2 players and creates a black and white video signal and sound signal.

This board is guaranteed to be fully functional and is guaranteed for 7 days.

A photocopy of the Midway documentation is included. The photo shown is of a TV monitor connected to this actual board operating. (Note, the ball is actually a small square as it should be, it appears stretched in the photo due to it's movement and the shutter speed of the photo)

If you don't have the game that this board comes from, but would like to make a PONG game, the interface is easy.

The board requires an +8.25 CT 8.25 Volts AC Center tapped power transformer at a couple of amps. (not included) (or an 8 Volt DC supply)

The two paddle control inputs are ordinary 5 k Ohm pots. (not included)

The video output is standard NTSC BLACK AND WHITE composite video that can be displayed on a standard TV monitor as I have done in the photo. (Monitor not included)

The sound signal requires a small amplifier or can drive a small speaker directly. (Amp and speaker not included)

If you want to make your own interface, is the pinout for the 22 pin edge connector for this board.
