It does not even have a RESET input. It is the fact that the 6510 on-chip port is turned into input mode at RESET that results in the default bank configuration. When the 6510 port is in input mode (=high impendance), the -LORAM, -HIRAM, and -CHAREN pullup resistors will make these signals high. This makes the PLA select the following map: 0000-9FFF: RAM A000-BFFF: BASIC C000-CFFF: RAM D000-DFFF: I/O E000-FFFF: KERNAL -- Christer Palm - This message was sent through the cbm-hackers mailing list.
