I have scanned and OCR-ed the user- and hardware-manual of the KIM. In one of 
them is this layout. (But at at second thougth, I'm not sure I "OCR-ed" this 
picture???) The text is available in ASCII (non-IBM-graphics), WP5 or 
IBM-graphics-ASCII. The first version is available at FUNET.

As Andre already explained, the chip was manufactured customer tailed and 
pre-programmed. My old site did contain a document how to build your own KIM 
using a 6532 instead a 6530. I'm happy to mail you this page and the schematic 
(GIF-file) if you want to.

Groetjes, Ruud
