The source for this detail is here in the lower right corner: ftp://www.zimmers.net/pub/cbm/schematics/computers/c64/251138-1of2.gif Also, the PLA with the number MB112A101 exists, was made by Fujitsu (as indicated by the 'MB' and the case design) and has the Commodore part number 251064-01. I have a working one. Its HIGH level seems to be a tad below what the MOS PLA produces. Gerrit Message was sent through the cbm-hackers mailing listReceived on 2016-08-08 06:00:03
