Motherboard Circuit @ 20th September 2000
With the Kludged 1N4148 diodes on the L293E
23 October 2013 - I can't believe that I have only just noticed that the diagram is wrong!
Nor can I find the original drawing to change it.
The Left eye should go to D5 not D4 and the 4k7 pullup on D5 should go to D7.

Motherboard layout

Motherboard parts
2 x 12 way 0.1 headers
2 x SPDT pcb switches
1 x 1N4001 diode
1 x 20 way DIL socket
1 x L298E 
3 x 4k7 resistors
4 x 0u1 ceramic disk capacitors 
	(using two 0u1 in series made the LDR readings better in the POT command) 
8 x 1N4148 diodes (for L293E protection, omit if using L293D)

Charger-socket parts - (see photo 12)
1 x 3.5mm jack socket
1 x 1N4148 diode

Note the position of the LED and it's jumper have been swapped to make it easier to change the jumper when plugged into the motherboard with a peripheral card in the next slot.
