Third-party Modifications
This section describes changes to the bus interface used by
third-party boards.
#### appleii6502
[appleii6502][a26] (apparently an anonymous user hosting his blog on
[Ninja Tools][a26-nt]) has been producing and selling RC6502 boards
and kits in Japan. The technical focus seems to be around re-using the
signals generated by the [SBC]'s [74LS138 decoder][a26-decode] by
routing them on to the bus in the following way:
Decode Range RC6502 Bus Apple 1 Expansion Slot
$A000 35 TX T (pin L)
$B000 36 RX S (pin 11)
$C000 39 R (pin 21)
The $C000 to expansion slot pin R mapping corresponds to the [Apple 1
address decoding][a1decode] jumper settings needed by the [Apple Cassette
Interface (ACI)][aci].
His [Apple1 SBC Slot Expander][a26-se] adds two 44-pin expansion slots with
the same pinout as the original Apple 1. RC6502 bus signals TX, RX, 38 and
39 are brought to pads adacent to pads for the Apple 1 slot signals S, T
and R to which the builder can solder jumpers. Pin 39 is labeled `$̅C̅0̅0̅0̅`;
it's intended that the [SBC] be modified to bring its address decoding for
that signal to that pin. These jumperings are [shown in images
The [Cassette Interface][a26-cass] is a clone of the original [ACI] that
plugs into the slot expander. It has a 2K ROM enabled by RC6502 bus pin 39,
which must be set up as a $C000-$CFFF decode (see above).
Another [post on slot expander decoding][a26-ab] explains how to disconnect
the Arduino's TX/RX (by cutting the pins off the Arduino board) and instead
wire $A000 and $B000 decoding to those bus pins. Presumably this is for a
future expansion card project.
