Anbei ein sehr interessantes Video in dem dem Ingenieur Luke Talley der NASA bzw. IBM im Auftrag der NASA einiges über die Computer der Apollo Rakete erzählt.
„My Z80 microcomputer is hand wired using the wire-wrap prototyping technique. This method uses thin 30 gauge wire, a special wire-wrap tool, and wire-wrap sockets. The sockets have 1/2 inch long square posts, which you use the tool to wrap (or twist) the wire onto the post. As long as you have 5 or more wraps on the post for a single wire, the connection is semi-perminant. This method was used because it’s easy to change connections and is faster than soldering each wire. Wire-wrapping was a popular method used in building early computers. In fact, the AGC computer used for the NASA Apollo missions were completely wire-wrapped! After I finished my computer, I went through more than 350 feet of wire!“
