If you are willing to only use 1K it's easy, no changes are required to the
Start with a 24 pin socket and plug it into the PROM board leaving pins 19 &
21 hanging out, tie these to ground (pin 12 or any convenient spot).
Plug the 2732 into the socket with the data in the lower 1K.
Please note you can use pins 19 & 21 as extra addressing pins controlled
either electronically or via switch for mutilple images.
Many options for the "extra" pins are available.
A 28 or 32 pin socket can be used for eeproms etc.
*** Please note this only allows reading, writing is a whole separate story.
I have the source code to several monitors on my site and have access to
more. If you ask nicely I'm sure Dave Dunfield will give you a copy of his
1K 8080 monitor.
