6502-SBC-Kit with Old Apple II Mainboard
This kit is ideal for people (Old Apple II -Fan's & 6502-Enthusiasts)
, who want to build their nostalgic "Super-AppleII" or want to use the well-known
Apple II-Technology/Environment for some homebrew Control-Stuff ( Some kind
of DIY-SBC ).
Their are many different Magazine Articles and instructions (included on
CD) to use higher integrated D-RAM Chips , to boost the old 48Kbyte (64 Kb.
together w.16K -RAMcard/Language-Card)-Barrier. To make this changes ( remove
Power-Supply-Wires +12V,-5V f. the 4116-DRAM-Layoutdesign ) , it's
much simpler to
use an "empty" Motherboard.
Included is also a Chip-Plan, what chips are required for which functionality.
So for simple Control-Applications, you don't need slots and half the ICs
on the Board (Video-Stuff, ..)
All collected Information ( > 100 MB.) is burned on CD.
There is also a description , how to add a VIA6522-Chip (only 17 Wires &
this Chip) for enhanced I/O & Control-Possibilities.
And their is a collection of applications f. the VIA6522.
All this is ideal, if you want to learn about uC (MicroController-Applications)
, for the Apple II-Tec is a prototype for modern uC-LSI, but is a size, to
work on, with your circuit-cellar stuff.
I have 2 kind of boards:
1. Apple II-Style Taiwan-Rebuild or
2. a enhanced one , with Z80 & 16KLanguage card already integrated.
