Of course, in order to hook the keyboard up to the Apple 1, the pin layouts needed to be known. Robert H. Edmonds (deceased) acquired these from Steve Jobs and passed them along to Joe.

Per Tom, I am forwarding the following:

Hi Tom,

I recently purchased a Datanetics Keyboard, and found your handwritten image / schematic from R. Edmunds. I was wondering if you or anyone else might know what the writing says on the lower left of the sketch under "strobe" pins 8-14?

(The image is here: )

My keyboard has a date of May 28, 1976.

I am also curious to know which contact on the keyboard is pin 1 ?
Have anyone found any other information on this Keyboard?

Thanks for any tips,
