KIM-1 Userguide

Added the ‘user guide’ chapters from the book ‘Microcomputer Principles Featuring the 6502/KIM-1′ as KIM-1 User guide.


MDT 650

The KIM-1 is the best known development system by MOS Technology.

But a more advanced, more expensive ($3950) system, quite rare now, is the MDT 650.

Here I present you the MOS Technology brochure, an article in the Microcomputer Digest and a userguide as published in the book Microcomputer Systems Principles featuring the 6502 KIM.

KIM-1 Book scanned

Motivated by Jeffrey Brace of VCF I have scanned and published Microcomputer Systems Principles featuring the 6502 KIM, Authors Camp, Smay and Triska

Introduction to KIM-1 programming, 6502, and also 6800 and 8080.

MC Die Mikrocomputer-Zeitschrift

Four 65XX and one Z80 SBCs, the EMUF series of the german magazine MC Die Mikrocomputer-Zeitschrift.

The EMUF pages are a tribute to the work of the editing staff of MC Die Mikrocomputer-Zeitschrift on SBC’s.

EMUF stands for Einplatinen-Mikrocomputer für Universelle Festprogrammierung, Single-board microcomputer for universal but fixed applications.

EMUFs SBC’s are programmable systems, without a monitor program: write a program and store it in an EPROM and run the application type of system. A bit like the modern microcontrollers like the PIC and AVR IC’s and also a bit like the Arduino’s. But with the technology of the 80ties: 8 bit CPU’s like the 65XX and Z80, I/O IC and EPROM and some RAM.

The first EMUF was published in 1981 in the second edition of the magazine. Often used with just the name EMUF. It could better be called the 6504-EMUF, since the CPU is the MOS 6504, a stripped version of the 6502.
In the years 1981 – 1986 several small SBCs were presented, EMUF-232, 6502-EMUF, Z80-EMUF.

A special one is the MC-65, a AIM 65 compatible 65C02 based SBC, able to runt eh AIM 65 ROMs.


TM76 Burr Brown terminal

A small device in the local thrift store got my attention, it has those calculator kind of displays, bubbles, rare and often more than 7 segments.

Interesting, looks like a microprocessor trainer? Read more here!

Thanks to Ray Holt (Microcomputer Associates, Synertek Systems) I have added photos to the Jolt, Super Jolt and Microcomputer Associates pages.

And separated the Jolt page into subpages J, Super Jolt and Microcomputer Associates pages.


SYM-1 KTM photos added

Thanks to Ray Holt (Microcomputer Associates, Synertek Systems) I have added photos of SYM-1 and KTM to the Synertek pages.
