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.
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!
an AIM65 newsletter, A bimonthtly newsletter published by Don Clem
Thanks to scans made by David Colglazier I have a collection of this AIM 65 newsletter online now!
Some additions to the 65 IC top photos page:
From Jolt and Superjolt photos by Ray Holt:
– old 6502
– old 6520
-old 6530 004
– GTE 65SC32
A recent buy:
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.
Thanks to Ray Holt (Microcomputer Associates, Synertek Systems) I have added photos of SYM-1 and KTM to the Synertek pages.
Thanks to Joan from Barcelona I have added book 3 of the Elektor Junior range.
Peter Renaud has designed a TIM system with a 6532, a 6502, some RAM, ROM and glue logic that runs the TIM-1 sofware.
Read here for the cicuit diagram and assembler source.
After finishing the large update a month ago of KIM-1/SYM-1/AIM 65 I turned my attention to the Elektuur/Elektor archive, mainly the 6502 period of 1978 to 1985 where the SBC Junior Computer and EC65/Octopus systems were introduced.
New and enhanced in higher quality information about these systems:
– published in multiple languages and more content of articles and books scanned, not only dutch bnut also English, German, French, some Spanish and Italian.
– better hardware descriptions and photos of PCBs etc
– more complete software library, sources of systems ROMS etc.
– gallery of Juniors, EC65 and other cards and cases
