The first bit-mapped board I saw for the PET was by, IIRC, MTU. It was
advertised in Byte, etc., in the day. Never saw one up close, just
screenshots of plotted mathematical equations.
Ah, their logo, the ubiquitous 'hat'...
Just happen to have one; the first version was actually designed for the
KIM & SYM (SRAM BTW) and when the PET came out they made an
adapter board for it; the second version was specifically for the PET and
had DRAM, and they could both also be used as ordinary expansion
memory. They also made music boards & software for KIM/SYM/PET,
expansion chassis, and other neat stuff for 6502-powered machines.
Their catalogue'll make you drool...
