Electronic Component Replacement List

Galaga Ribbon Cables:

Repairing my Galaga board involved getting some custom chips from Mike's Arcade and some old memory chips from Arcadechips.

I also had to replace the 50 conductor ribbon cable and the PCB headers and I got those from Digikey as follows (Aug.31, 2006, Stock Prices last updated Sept. 16, 2007):
