Actually it'll use a EEPROM for the 6530 emulator. I've located
some small 28C64s. The advantage is that these can be programmed
with the debug board while on the KIM board. It should look good as
well because it will be tucked under the 6532. The registers are slightly
different on the 6530 and 6532 but they should work the same if one
ties the 6532s A4 a constant high. This looses half the 6532s 128 bytes
of RAM but the 6530 only had 64 bytes anyway so nothing really lost.
The only difference then is the interrupt. The 6532 has edge or level
interrupt but few people wire up the interrupt. It isn't clear but I believe
the 6530 is a level interrupt and that should be the reset level for the
I'm looking at board maker options.

Add me to the list. It is possible to have the 6532 and a eprom as a
