Sinclair QL Expansion Development Kit

This was an internal development kit used by Sinclair to test expansion cards. The smaller card plugs into the QL and mirrors the bus signals onto the backplane via the rainbow ribbon cable. This allows the user to add multiple expansion cards for testing. The backplane has a small daughterboard to allow an external power supply to be connected.
