Brain board card for Apple II
The Brain Board card has 2 banks of ROM to replace the main ROM
A 27c256 ROM (32k) is used, with the following mapping:
0x0000-0x00ff: lower card rom maps to $Csxx
0x1000-0x37ff: lower bank rom maps to $D000 to $F7FF
0x3800-0x3fff: F8 lower bank rom maps to $F800 to $FFFF
0x4000-0x40ff: upper card rom maps to $Csxx
0x5000-0x77ff: upper bank rom maps to $D000 to $F7FF
0x7800-0x7fff: F8 upper bank rom maps to $F800 to $FFFF
DIP SWitches_
1-ON : The range F8 can be replaced
1-OFF: The range F8 is not replaced
3-ON ,4-OFF: The motherboard ROM can be used
3-OFF,4-ON : The motherboard ROM is always replaced
5-ON ,6-OFF: The lower bank is used and mapped to Bank A
5-OFF,6-ON : The lower bank is not used (A can be motherboards or uppers)
7-ON ,8-OFF: The upper bank is used and mapper to bank B
7-OFF,8-ON : The upper bank is not used (B can be motherboards or lowers)
Switches and softswitches:
Up, $COsO - SS clear: A bank selected
Down, $COs1 - SS set: B bank selected
