There's just a 2316B, a small PCB, some stiff steel wires that plug into the 6540 socket, and a solder jumper or two on the bottom of the PCB (one closed, one open). No active components. The rest of the ROMs in the machine have the expected part numbers as documented on zimmers.net, etc. The rest of the machine looks entirely ordinary and works like a "European" PET when a bog-standard Character Gen ROM is installed. > Anyway, I'm interested since I happen to have a spare Japanese keyboard > and my girlfriend is studying Japanese at the moment (although I doubt she'd > want to start using a PET for her Japanese writing ;-) Can you post a photograph of that keyboard? I'm curious what Japanese characters overlay which ASCII values. > If you do manage to read the ROM and it looks like it works, I'd love to get > a binary dump. Of course. If I can dump the ROM, I'll post an image on zimmers.net. -ethan Message was sent through the cbm-hackers mailing listReceived on 2009-11-23 22:00:08
