My 6502 systems

I have added a page with photos of my 6502 systems. From the KIM-1 to the A-One extended and Micro KIM to the Pocketerm. Includes Junior and Elektuur bus systems like EC65/Octopus.

6530 6532 TIM 6530-004


The KIM-1 has two 6530 IC’s, the 002 and 003. From some research I have found that this factory mask rommable I/O RRIOT has been produced in more versions.

An interesting one is a relative of the KIM, the Terminal Interface Monitor 6530-004. Meant for a minimal 6502 development system, it contains a teletype oriented monitor program and a serial interface via bit banging.
See the TIM 6530-004 page for more information.

But there were more 6530’s produced (and the list must be incomplete since lots of sequence numbers are missing. like 001.

6530-005 According this OSI appnote this is an unprogrammed version of the 6530. I have seen ads for this part without description of what this is.

The DOS65 system, designed by the KIM Gebruikers Club, based upon an Elektuur Octopus design, augmented with a better floppy controller is now documented on the DOS65 page.



Conversion finished, now ready for more updates

The conversion of the old website is now finished and its mobile friendly! And at least on a modern and easy to maintain WordPress base.

Now ready to add more info and play with my KIM-1 and Apple 1’s!

And the DOS65 systems just beg to be documented ..

New website


Welcome to the Retro website!

This website is now being transformed into a WordPress site. Responsive, modern, safe, easy to maintain, but with the same contents. It is also a good opportunity to weed out errors and enhance the site even more.

Also the site changed from pure SBC to more general microprocessor and related electronics with the addition of magazine articles from Radio Bulletin and Elektuur.
