Hi, all

Amazing to see "reappear" those EF9365/6 so many years after ! No idea if they had been widely used or not but I remember having read those datasheets by the time I was working on the French Minitel (EF9340/41 then later 9345/74) and beeing impressed by available power.

It will be a very big chalenge for "someone" to emulate those on VICE.

Well, that makes a case for adding some emulation to VICE.
I have no idea how complex that graphics chip is but it helps that its
memory apparently isn't mapped into CPU address space.

How does a 512 x 512 graphics screen go on a display that normally shows
640 x 200 (80*8 x 25*8)? I must assume that they can show only one or
the other, with wildly differing video timings?
