The KGN (KIM Gebruikers CLub Nederland) was founded in 1977 and published and organized meetings until 1995.
On this page you can read the first publication, the legal Foundation creation and the last ‘bye bye’ in the magazine.
A recent acquisition delivered me a system, in excellent visual condition with
- KIM-1 rev B ceramic white CPU and 6530, grey 6530
- ASCII display
- ASCII keyboard
- Brutech 4K RAM
Now the KIM-1 has no secrets for me, this is a beautiful example with these withe IC’s
The Brutech 4K RAM card just fits on the expansion connector, I have seen these cards before in the 70ties!
The ASCII display card, about the same size as the KIM-1 is unknown to me, the only information is ASCII Display TTY compatible v.s. 13 .
No documentation but some properties can be deducted from the IC’s on the board. It is without doubt a simple TYTY replacement serial ASCII display terminal.
There is a video output on the bottom right, serial input/output on the left connector and on the left connector one can attach a ASCII parallel keyboard (see below, it is in the package). Read More
Hopefully no one has seen it, it took less than a day and night to move all my hansotten.nl websites to another provider.
The provider is strato.nl, where all my other sites hansotten.com are stored already
All seems well, but if you spot a problem, please tell me!
Es Lebe der KIM-1, ELCOMP article how to start with the KIM-1, includes sample programs and a LED hardware experiment.
Small modification to OSI 300 schematic.
KIM Tape Copy v1.1, copy all files on a KIM cassette. Uses two recorders attached as shown in Micro Ade manual.
I found a complete description of the replacement board for the 6530 in the Gottlieb Pinball systems multisoundsystem.
Now added to the 6530 page.
Until now I only saw an advertisement for a 6530-005 in an 70ties magazine. But today I found an ebay advertisement selling these IC’s. A Rockwell variant, date code 8114. Without any description, so the function is still unknown. But a photo is now found!
I also found more 6530 variants used in the pinball industry:
6530-12 or 6530-13 were used in the Gottlieb System 1 sound boards
6530-14 was used in the Gottlieb System 80 series sound boards.
My drawer is full with a supply of 65XX IC’s. Some bought, some donated, some salvaged. From old to quite recent.
For a long time I have been looking at the photos of this, o so simple 6502 trainer, to see how it works and be able to build one myself.
Now that the circuit diagram has become available I have added a page on the OSI 300 on what I have found out about this simple 6502 system: photo’s, manual and circuit.
