The KIM-1 design inspired many designers of 6502 systems, mimicking either the unique LED and keypad setup or by having the same application/expnsion connector
– SYM-1 Application and expansion connector, LED and keypad display, tape format
– AIM 65 Application and expansion connector, tape format
– MCS Alpha 1 LED and keypad display, tape format
– Elektor Junior LED and keypad display, tape format
– KIM Uno emulator LED and keypad display

PDF of the design of the KIN computer
A KIM clone developed by Paul Lamer for track testing at races. The Super KIM was sold us board also, as advertisements show.
A true KIM clone with both 6530 RRIOTs, 4K Bytes RAM (8x 2114), 8 bit latched priority interrupts, 4 6522 VIAs, 16K Bytes EPROM (4x 2732), Power supply on baord, tri-state address and databus buffers, KIM-1 edge card connectors.

ET-2 meets Superkim, Part 1 and 2 , Don Mcallister, Robots age Fall 1980. Describes how to inetrafce the Superkim to a Lour Control ET-2 robot shell.
|Found this photo in a Facebook group, no more information known. Looks like a standard KIM-1 with 2114 SRAM ICs.|
On team6502 I found a photo of a prototype KIM-1 at MOS Technologies, Terry Holdt has this in his office.
The layout is different from the final product, everything seems to be present on this prototype.
